Down on the Farm

Scranton WB 11 – Louisville 5

The Bats jumped out to an early 4 run lead thanks to 4 Louisville players having multi-hit games. Jay Bruce went 4-5 with 4 singles, a run scored, and an rbi. Jerry Gil went 2-5 with a double and 2 runs batted in. Jolbert Cabrera and Chris Kroski each went 2-4 in the game. Cabrera added a run scored and an rbi to his total.

The Bats were cruising until the 5th when Matt Maloney and reliever Tyler Pelland ran into trouble, allowing Scranton to score 4 times to take the lead. But what finally sealed the Bats fate was when good ol’ Gary Majewski took to the mound! Majewski was beat like a rented mule, allowing 3 runs on 4 hits, a walk, a homerun, and a strikeout over the course of .2 innings pitched. For those keeping score at home, and lets be honest, we know you are, that is now 7 runs on 11 hits and 2 walks in 3.2 relief innings for Mr. Majewski at AAA this season.

Chattanooga 6 – Birmingham 3

Tonys Gutierrez went 3-4 on the night, driving in 3 runs, scoring 2, and hitting his 2nd homerun of the season in the 5th inning. Tonys is batting .333/.448/.583 in just 24 at-bats. B.J. Szymanksi and Eric Eymann each went 2-4 with an rbi.

Matt Belisle pitched extremely well, throwing a complete game and picking up the win. Belisle allowed 3 runs (2 earned) on 7 hits and 0 walks. He struck out 3.

Sarasota 10 – Lakeland 5

The Reds scored 10 runs in the first 4 innings and cruised to the 10-5 win. Chris Valaika and Jason Louwsma each went 3-5 with a run scored and an rbi each. Sean Henry, Juan Francisco, Drew Stubbs, and Michael DeJesus each had 2 hits on the night. Francisco and DeJesus each added 2 rbis. DeJesus, Stubbs, and Francisco each added doubles while Henry had a triple on the night.

Camilo Vazquez picked up the win by going 5 innings, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks while striking out 5. Ramon Geronimo pitched 2 scoreless innings, allowing 1 hit while striking out 3.

Dayton 8 – Fort Wayne 1

Michael McKennon led the offensive charge with a 3-5 night with 2 doubles, a run scored and an rbi. Justin Reed also had 3 hits in 4 at-bats and scored twice. Brandon Waring went 2-4 on the evening, adding 2 runs and 2 rbis to his season total.

  1. From the Dayton Dragons: The Dragons travel to Appleton, Wisconsin to begin a six game road trip on Friday night at 7:35 p.m. against the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. The Dragons are expected to activate Matt Klinker from the disabled list to make his first start of the season.

  2. Gotta love it when karma rears up its ugly head. He was mad when he got sent down feeling like he wasnt given a fair shot and should have gotten more chances. Its pretty sad when a vet is sent down a sulks and 21 year old kid acts like an adult and goes out and dominates. Make you wonder who really has their head on straight … Bailey or Majewski?

  3. You have to wonder how much longer the Reds will keep Majewski…he’s still here by the grace of Krivsky’s ego, IMO.

  4. I would guess at the first AAA roster crunch, if there is such a crunch later this year.

  5. They’ve got Sauerbeck on the DL and Gonzalez is going to come off the Reds DL at some point, as is Ross.
