Tigers Minor League Wrap – 4/15/07

Durham 8, Toledo 0
For anyone clamoring for Zach Miner to take Chad Durbin’s spot in the rotation, Miner doesn’t appear ready. He didn’t make it out of the 2nd inning today and allowed 7 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks. Cory Hamman did a nice job mopping up going 3 2/3 innings allowing 1 run on 5 hits while fanning 4. The offense only mustered 5 hits. Ryan Raburn was 1 for 2. Chris Shelton went 0 for 2 with a walk.

Also, the Mud Hens resumed their suspended game from yesterday and won. Jeremy Johnson who was promoted from Erie to take Jordan Tata’s spot went 3 innings allowing 1 run on 2 hits to go along with 4 K’s.

Erie – PPD At this rate the entire 2nd half schedule will be double headers.

Lakeland 2, Clearwater 5
Sendy Vasquez walked 4 and allowed 7 hits in 4 1/3 innings for 5 runs of damage. Cameron Maybin and Wilkin Ramirez each went 2 for 4 and Justin Justice added a double.

West Michigan 5, South Bend 4
Scott Sizemore had 2 hits coming into today. The story is a little better now after a 4 for 5 day. Jeramy Laster was 3 for 4. Audy Ciriaco added a double, a HBP, and a walk. Duane Below made it threw 4 1/3 innings allowing 2 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks while striking out 7.

  1. Personally, I wish that we could get a reliable lefty in the bullpen and put Ledezma in the rotation. This could be why we miss Walker the most this year.


  2. Hey billfer, how early can you get the game threads up? I know the game’s not till 7, but I want to comment NOW!!! ha.
