Bats are quiet again tonight. Louisville trails 2 zip after six full. Chad Reineke started for Louisville. 6IP 9H 2ER 1BB 3K. Bats have five singles. Gregorius, Rodriguez, Soto, Harris and Peacock. High batting average in the lineup is .246. Can't expect a whole lot more. Two of the five were picked off. Not much good baseball played in Louisville this summer. Oh, yeah. Devin Mesoraco is 0-3.

It says Tennessee and Pensacola are warming up. Seems like they are starting the game kinda late. Wirfin Obispo (2.16) is the scheduled starter. He has been pretty dominating in AA this summer.

Pensacola is 1.5 games out and their elimination number is 4. They may have to win out.

Jacob Johnson's lost summer has come to a close. 5.2IP 6H 5ER 2BB 3K. Dayton trails 5-3. Sean Buckley has a double. Perez, Terry, Silva and Arias with singles. The high batting average in the lineup tonight for the Dragons is .276. Tough year for the sticks.

AZL Reds season is over. They lost their last five games to finish at 18-38. Respectable on the road they rolled over frequently at home (6-22). Jonathan Reynoso did make the all league team. Not particularly strong numbers with the bat so he must really be able to flag them down in the outfield. Yay!

Louisville game moving right along. Reineke with a 1-2-3 seventh. Phipps with a single in the 8th. Still 2-0.

Didi Gregorius followed Phipps' single with a two-bagger to put two ducks on the pond. But Mesoraco pops out. Nothing happens in the ninth. Louisville falls 2-0.

In Pensacola, Obispo allows a solo home run in the top of the first and that is the extent of the scoring so far. Barnhart and Obispo had back-to-back singles in the second but were left stranded. Wahoos trail 1-0 in the third.

Dayton fought back with 3 in the bottom of the sixth to grab a one-run lead but Jimmy Moran, with the help of some shoddy defense, gave two right back in the seventh and the Dragons trail 7-6. A triple off the bat of Sammy Diaz with the bases loaded has been the big blow for Dayton.

Absolutely nothing happening in the first 1.5 innings in Billings. No hits for either team. Drew Cisco has fanned four.

Billings now up 4-0 in the fifth. The big blow was a bases-jammed triple by Brandon Dailey. Drew Cisco has been dandy.

P'cola leads 2-1 in the sixth. Obispo still going strong, in spite of four walks. Hamilton's 0-3, Lutz has a double.

Unlike the Reds, Dayton can't win without Votto. Dragons go down 8-6. Arias and Silva each had a couple safeties.

Cisco for the night: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K.

Billings relievers, however, have coughed up 8 runs in the seventh, which is still going. Mustangs now trail 8-6.

Vincej's two hits put him at .384.

Edit: Missoula ended up scoring 9 in the inning against four relievers.

Not going well for Pensacola. Obispo gave up another HR and left after six innings of 3-run pitching (which, for him, is getting shelled). Hamilton is 0-4 with 2 K. Wahoos trail 4-2 in the eighth.

Bennett Klimesh began that ugly 7th for the Mustangs, faced three batters and retired none. Ryan Fennell, making his Pioneer League debut, fared a little better. He struck out one of the four hitter he faced, while giving up a hit and walking two. Joseph Housey came in next, also making his Pioneer League debut, faced three batters and retired none. Nick Routt finally put out the fire, pitching 2.2 innings of one-hit, scoreless baseball.
Billings falls 9-6.

Tennessee Smokies only garnered four hits on Thursday night but three left the stadium in a 4-2 win over Pensacola. Donald Lutz a single and a double, Brodie Greene with two doubles and not much else. Pensacola teetering on the edge of playoff elimination now.

Bakersfield and Jaime Walczak shout out Visalia 4-0. Selsky and Lohman with two hits each. Stephen Hunt hit his second home run in two games. Theo Bowe stole number 54 and Steve Selsky gunned down another runner at the plate. Walczak went 6 scoreless, striking out five. Brooks Pinckard and Carlos Contreras brought the shutout home. Contreras has pitched will since his promotion to High A. 8IP 6H 2ER 4BB 10K.

They almost have to win all 4 games and then hope.

Donald Lutz hurt himself running to 1st base so I wouldn't be surprised if he gets the night off tonight. BTW, he has no business playing LF.

That's not encouraging for his future in this organization. Maybe include him in the package for Upton?
