Minor details 5/12/12: A night to forget for all Reds teams

Saturday was a night to forget for all teams in the Cincinnati Reds organization as five squads set out in search for victories and none emerged successful.

Lehigh Valley 5, Louisville 3 F/10
- The Bats (11-26) dropped a 10-inning affair to the visiting Iron Pigs. The loss marked the eighth in their last nine games. Jeff Francis got the start and lasted 6.1 innings while allowing 10 hits and three runs. All three runs came via solo homers. Carlos Fisher took the loss dropping his season record to 0-2.
- Louisville was out-hit, 15-8, but did manage to get two hits a piece from 2B Willie Harris and 3B Chris Valaika in the losing cause.

Birmingham 0, Pensacola SUSP
- Saturday's contest between the Barons and Blue Wahoos was suspended due to rain. The game is scheduled to be made-up on Sunday as part of a back-to-back doubleheader.

Inland Empire 8, Bakersfield 7 F/13
- The Blaze (20-15) and 66ers took part in a wild one on Saturday night. Bakersfield rallied to score five runs in the top of the eighth to help send the game into extras tied at six. However, the bullpen couldn't hold on to a one-run lead in the 13th as they surrendered the game-tying and game-winning runs.
- Tony Cingrani made the start and hurled six innings of four-hit, one-run ball while striking out eight. His ERA on the year remains well under one at 0.68. Brian Pearl and Ryan Kiel each tossed two scoreless frames of relief.
- SS Billy Hamilton notched three hits including his sixth triple of the season. The speedster also swiped two bags to raise his incredible total to 35 on the year. DH David Vidal (7) and C Chris Berset (1) each launched solo homers while LF Juan Duran and CF Bryson Smith both boasted a pair of singles.

Lansing 16, Dayton 4
- Starter Daniel Tuttle (1-2) and the Dragons (14-22) took a hammerin' from the Lugnuts en route to an embarrassing home loss. Tuttle coughed up six runs (all earned), four hits and three walks in just one inning of work. Carlos Contreras and El'Hajj Muhammad were the lone bright sports for the pitching staff as they combined for 3.2 innings of shutout ball.
- SS Juan Perez was 3-5 with two doubles and two RBI. 2B Ryan Wright was 3-5 as well with a run scored. DH Josef Terry smacked his first homer of the season and C Yovan Gonzalez picked up a couple of singles.
* Dayton placed Tuttle on the 7-day disabled list after the game with a strained right calf.
