Louisville hosting Columbus in another low-scoring contest. Through six innings the Bats trail the Clippers by a score of 2-1. Pedro Villareal with a quality start. 6IP 5H 2ER 1BB 3K. Travis Webb has come on in the 7th. Denis Phipps with a double, a walk and a run scored. Gregorius drove him home with a two-out single. Harris has double, while Soto and Rodriguez have singled.

No games scheduled in the Southern League. Not that Isaac was going to let anyone play anyway.

YRod has made solid progress since his return, IMO. Hope it continues in Bakersfield next year.

Travis Webb and Jordan Smith each gave up a run in their respective inning of work. Phipps doubled again and Didi singled him home again. Bats trail 4-2 heading into the bottom of the ninth. Devin Mesoraco was 1 for 4.

Ryan Kemp allowed an unearned run to tighten things up in Dayton. The Dragons lead 4-3 going into the ninth. In a strange twist Muhammad refused to go to the mound to pitch the ninth, and so they brought the mound to Muhammad. Let's see if that works out for El'Hajj. Nick O'Shea came on for Joey Votto and naturally he doubled. Lucas O'Rear worked a scoreless frame for Dayton, who surely must lead the league in apostrophied names.

Some posts are so good you just gotta go with them twice. This, however, is not one of those posts.

Tim Crabbe (3.40) will be working the bump tonight for the Blaze.

I would like for this to go on texasdave's permanent record.

Edit: It proved to be a mountain that Muhammad could not master. Gave up two runs and took the loss.

Billings' bullpen--namely, Mike Saunders and Alejandro Chacin (Jose Amezcua did just fine)--blew a couple late leads and the Mustangs fell, 6-4. The splendiferous Jesse Winker had a couple doubles. He was, however, replaced by a pinch-runner, whatever that signifies.

In their final rodeo of the season, the AZL youngsters have hogtied the little Dodgers, 1-0, through six. Pedro Diaz got it going with three scoreless innings (4 K) and Abel De Los Santos followed with two (an Aroldis-like 5 K).

The AZL bullpen followed suit, giving up 3 runs late in a 3-1 loss. Abed de los Santos finished the year en fuego. In his last five appearances he cranked out this line:
6IP 1H 0R 3BB 14K.

Tim Crabbe pitched well for five innings but continuing with the theme of the night the bullpen surrendered five runs in the next two innings as Bakersfield fell 7-1. Theo Bowe doubled and nailed a runner at the plate. Niko Vazquez had a pair of two-baggers. Steve Selsky was held hitless but threw a runner out at second.

Winker is really having an incredible year for a kid straight out of high school. Hope he keeps it up at the other levels.

Ismael Guillon went six strong. 6IP 5H 2ER 2BB 8K. .

Guillon has to be protected this off-season. He is the kind of pitcher a Houston could stash and we would regret losing in a few years.

I am still recovering from whatever happened to me last night, but I will just say this for now: Ismael Guillon was really impressive last night.

Do tell!

edit: nevermind, I thought Guillon was that impressive, but I understand you were sick. No details required.

I will do a write up for my site and share it here as well with some video next week. I am currently not sure how I am even functioning enough to have made it to my desk.

Much appreciated, Doug. You go above and beyond.

From what little I saw, Guillon was really competing. Just a bummer you don't get that CF camera on milb.com telecasts. Couldn't see his stuff.

His splits are remarkably consistent. Home or away. Night or day. Month by month.

The only blip is that he hits a little more poorly with the bases empty and a little better with runners on and/or in scoring position. Which is a good thing I think.
