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.

    And people questioned starting Miller in Lakeland.

    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.
