Louisville (7-5) once again is hosting division-leading Indianapolis. The second-place Bats will be looking to creep a game closer. Chien-Ming Wang will be on the mound for Louisville. The Bats' righthander will be making his third start of the campaign. He has experienced some wildness in his first two starts, walking 8 batters over the span of 10 innings. His ERA is 5.40.
Pensacola (7-6) will once again be facing the Montgomery in game number four of a five-game set. The Wahoo have dropped 2 of the first 3. The Blue Fish are currently is a three-way tie for the division lead along with the Biscuits and the BayBears. Pensacola will lean on the right arm of Jon Moscot, who has gotten off to a fast start here in 2014. After two starts, Moscot's ERA is a miniscule 0.90. In ten innings, he has fanned 9 and walked only 2.
Bakersfield (11-3) will host the San Jose GDPs in the first of three. The Blaze sit atop their division. Pitching duties will be handled by Wandy Peralta. Peralta has struggled out of the gate this season, allowing ten hits and walking four in just 8.2 innings of work. He has fanned just four. It is Thirsty Thursday so get there early and often. Incidentally, Bakersfield leads the league in mascots as well with Torch, Heater and Pat D. Panda.
Dayton (9-3) will host the Kane County Mutineers. Both teams lead their respective divisions by a game and a half. Lefty Amir Garrett will try to shackle the Mutineers. Garrett has struck out 11 Midwest League batters in ten innings. So far he has proven to be a little too hittable, however, yielding 14 base hits during that span.
