Jared Goedert is mashing in Akron, but when will he go up to Columbus? Jake Lowery is hitting well in Carolina, but what's with all the strikeouts? Tony touches on all that and more in IPI's original Around the Farm!

Mudcats beat the Pelicans and weather, 7-2
On a rainy, overcast day at Five County Stadium the Carolina Mudcats (6-8) and Myrtle Beach Pelicans (8-6) took the field for the third game of the series. A heavy rain storm that came through Zebulon delayed the game after the start of the second inning for an hour and 23 minutes. The delay would ultimately cut both the Mudcats and Pelicans starters’ nights short. But the rain would not cool of the Mudcats bats as they were able to crank out seven extra base hits in a 7-2 win over the Pelicans.
