Tigers Minor League Wrap – July 20th

I’ll come back and update this after the games in progress have been completed. But I thought it was noteworthy that Dmitri Young and Toledo played this afternoon. Also, check out the game that Oneonta was involved in.

Dmitri Young went 1 for 5 in what may have been his last rehab start. David Espinosa was 3 for 5 with a homer. Jack Hannahan homered, singled, and walked. Chad Durbin was roughed up for 8 hits and 4 runs in 5 2/3 innings. Chris Spurling pitched 2 innings allowing 2 hits, a walk, and an unearned run.

    26 innings–that’s a lot. Still needed 7 more innings to match the all-time record, a game that involved two future hall-of-famers.

    Wow, what a game. Even Nate Robertson pitched 1/3 of an inning. 🙂

    And the Cyclone manager was ejected in the bottom of the 1st, so he had to watch 25 INNINGS from the clubhouse.
