Scores and Highlights from 6/3

Louisville Bats 7, Durham Bulls 0 
The Bulls struggled to get anything going offensivly as they were shut-out 7-0. The offense was handcuffed by Louisville's starter Jeff Francis who just needed 114 pitches to throw the complete game shut-out. Shawn O'Malley was the only Bull to record multiple hits, going 2 for 3. Chris Archer was charged with the loss.

Montgomery Biscuits 3, Tennessee Smokies 2
The Biscuits held on for a narrow win over the Smokies on Sunday evening. The Biscuits use two home runs to score three runs in the second inning. Tyler Bortnick delivered a solo shot and Greg Sexton had a two run homer to give them a 3-0 lead. Those two homers were the only two hits for the Biscuits but it was enough as the pitching staff held off a late game rally by the Smokies to give them the win. Joe Cruz picked up the win and Kirby Yates the save.

Dunedin Blue Jays 11, Charlotte Stone Crabs 1 
The Stone Crabs pitching staff could not contain the Blue Jays offense as they lost 11-1 on Sunday. Starter Braulio Lara struggled early, putting the Stone Crabs in a 5-0 hole before departing in the third. The Stone Crabs lone run came in the fourth on a solo homer by Derek Dietrich. Hector Guevara and Kevin Kiermaier had two hits in the game. Lara was charged with the loss.

Dayton Dragons 5, Bowling Green Hot Rods 4 
 The Hot Rods dropped Sunday's game against the Dragons to even the series. The Dragons broke the scoreless tie in the fifth inning, scoring three runs in the inning. The Hot Rods slowly chipped away at the lead and pull to within a run of the lead but could never recover as they suffered the loss. Todd Glaesman was 2 for 4 with a homer and two stolen bases. Jake Hager drove home two runs. Alejandro Segovia had a solo homer. Felipe Rivero was charged with the loss.

  1. And today the Reds have released Jeff Francis. Nice of them to let him shutout the Bulls first.
