Tigers Minor League Wrap – August 8th

Toledo 4, Columbus 2
I know it’s only 2 games, but Chris Shelton has back to back 3 hit games. Tonight he was a triple short of the cycle and added 2 walks. Alexis Gomez added 2 hits. Jordan Tata allowed 1 run on 5 hits, but he only lasted 4 innings as his pitch count crept up to 95 due in large part to 4 walks.

New Britain 6, Erie 5
Jackson Melian had 2 hits and Kody Kirkland was 1 for 4. Eulogio De La Cruz allowed 3 runs on 6 hits, 5 walks, and 8 strike outs in 7 innings.

Lakeland 3, Jupiter 1
Clete Thomas and Juan Francia each had 2 hit games. Andrew Kown allowed 3 hits and 1 unearned run in 4 innings. He fanned 6 and walked none. Kevin Whelan pitched 2 scoreless innings, walking 2 and striking out 3.

Fort Wayne 2, West Michigan 0
Mike Hollimon tripled and singled and stole a base. Cameron Maybin was 0 for 4. Erik Averill worked 8 innings and allowed 9 hits and 3 walks for 2 runs. He struck out 7.

Tri-City 4, Oneonta 3
Ronnie Bourquin hit his first homer as part of a 1 for 3, 1 walk night. In a rare hitless game for Scott Sizemore he still managed 2 walks. Zach Piccola allowed 4 runs, 1 earned in 5 innings.

    Is Scott Sizemore related to Grady Sizemore?

    That should have Shelton’s hitting spread, textual, not a graphic. Mostly left and center for his outs, hits go the right but the ball doesn’t go there a lot.

    Tony:

    He’s not.
