Toledo 3, Rochester 1
Ryan Ludwick singled and walked twice while Don Kelly, Alexis Gomez, and Tike Redman added doubles. Jorda Tata seems to have settled in as a Mud Hen with another strong start. This time it was 4 hits over 7 innings with 2 walks and 3 strike outs. Incidentally the Hens were facing Kyle Lohse. You may remember that the Tigers largely contributed to Lohse’s demotion by raking him in 3 appearances.
Altoona 4, Erie 2
Juan Francia seems to be coming out of his funk with a triple and a single. Chris Maples added two doubles. Brent Clevlen took an 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts. He’s now hitting 217/317/322 in 180 at-bats with 59 strikeouts. I guess the bright side is that he has walked 24 times. Virgil Vasquez went 7 1/3 allowing 3 runs on 7 hits. He walked one and struck out five.
