It was one-run night in the Tigers organization. Every game, including the big club was close.
Ottawa 8, Toledo 7
Ryan Raburn was a double short of the cycle and is now hitting 290/370/530. Jack Hannahan doubled and walked twice. Don Kelly had a rough night going 0 for 5 with 4 K’s.
Erie 3, Akron 2
Humberto Sanchez continues to dominate. Tonight’s effort was 8 innings of one run ball. He allowed 5 hits and 3 walks while fanning 9. His season totals are now: 71 2/3 IP, 86K, 27BB, 1.03 WHIP. With another solid month, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him promoted to Toledo. Tony Giarratano was 3 for 3 with a walk and he added his 14 SB. Brent Clevlen added a single and two walks.
Brevard County 4, Lakeland 3
This game marked Kyle Sleeth’s return to the mound after Tommy John surgery. He was knocked around for 5 hits, two walks, and 4 runs (3 earned) in 3 innings. But the important thing is that he was out there. Jeremy Johnson who struggled at Erie earlier in the year pitched 4 innings in relief extending his FSL scoreless streak to 12 innings.
Quad Cities 4, West Michigan 3 (11 innings) Lucas French went 7 innings and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits, striking out 7. Orlando Perdomo had a rare mis-step has he blew the save. It was only the 4th run Perdomo has allowed. Pedro cotto doubled and singled, and Dusty Ryan added 3 hits and a walk.
