Welcome back Jim Piascik from his recent wedding and honeymoon as he takes you Around The Farm with all the action from last night's minor league games.

Around the Farm: August 22, 2012
Ronny Rodriguez belted home run #18 last night, and is clearly a candidate to visit Akron for the playoffs. Jake Sisco was outstanding for a second straight start in Mahoning, but couldn't overcome the paltry offense. The top of ATF on Wednesday has another starter on the peak, who may just be having the best season of any starter in the system. Find out who that is...after the jump...

Scrappers blow lead in ninth, lose 3-2
The Scrappers just keep finding new ways to lose. After dropping the first in their series against Batavia Monday, it looked like they would squeak by in the second as they carried a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the ninth. It wasn’t to be, however, as a Muckdog rally aided by a costly error was enough to propel them past the Scrappers 3-2.

With the stretch drive in full swing, the Carolina Mudcats unofficially called it a season, going 1-5, and falling into last place in Carolina League Southern Division.

Second Thoughts: Game #123 Mariners 5, Indians 1
