Down on the Farm as a daily feature with coverage of all the minor league games will not be airing here as it has in the past. In this new weekly feature column, however, I’ll attempt to fill the void a bit by highlighting some of the happenings from each team in the previous week […]

A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17

Triple – A

Louisville 10 – Indianapolis 2

The Bats belted 3 homeruns to blow out Indy.  Darnell McDonald went 3-4 with a homerun, 2 doubles, a walk, 2 rbis, and 3 runs scored.  With the terrible play we see nightly from Willie Taveras, it is getting hard to ignore the fact that Darnell is hitting .324/.358/.544 in AAA.  Yeah, I know, we saw him earlier this season and he was terrible, but those numbers are pretty nice!  Juan Francisco went 2-4, hit his 2nd homerun with Louisville, and had a double.  He drove in 3 rbis and scored a run.  Wes Bankston hit his 16th homerun of the season and drove in 3 rbis.  Luis Bolivar and Chris Denove each had 2 hits.

Matt Maloney allowed 1 run on 5 hits and did not walk anyone in 6 innings of work.  He struck out 7 and improved his record to 9-8 on the year and lowered his AAA ERA to 2.96 on the season.
