Toledo 6 Indianapolis 2
Chris Shelton picked up 2 more hits and a walk bringing his average to 412. Timo Perez has been nearly his equal with 2 hits and a walk of his own to bring his average to 389. Brent Clevlen was 0 for 3 with a walk. Ron Chiavacci allowed 1 run over 5 innings.

Binghamton 0, Erie 8
The Seawolves finally got to open their season, and open it they did. Jeff Larish was the offensive star going 3 for 4 with a homer, a walk and 4 RBI. Matt Joyce added 2 hits as well. Dallas Trahern threw 6 shutout innings with a 13-2 groundout to fly out ratio. PJ Finigan chipped in 2 innings of relief fanning 5 of the 6 hitters he faced.

Lakeland 4, Tampa 10
Sendy Vasquez started and was tagged for the first 5 runs. The relievers didn’t fare much better. Paul Hammond did okay in that he didn’t allow a run, but still surrendered two hits in one inning of work. Cameron Maybin is still looking for his first hit, but he did pick-up and outfield assist. Wilkin Ramirez provided the offense with 2 hits including his first homer of the year.

Lansing 8, West Michigan 3
Rough day for the A clubs pitching staffs. Duane Below walked 6 and didn’t make it out of the 3rd inning. Ryan Strieby added 2 hits to push his average to 308.

  1. On vacation in Florida and went to the Flying Tigers game. Vasquez looked pretty good until the 5th when the wheels fell off.

    Maybin still hitless, but they will come. He did steal 2. Meet Anthony Claggett’s Dad. He was part of the Sheffield deal. He did not start pitching until his last year in college, but put up some SICK stats last year at Western MI.

    I saw they posted attendence at 795, must of benn 650 no shows?? I counted around 100 people in the stands in the 6th inning. My 4-yr old got 2 International League Balls, and we paid $1 admission (with a canned good) as part of a promotion.


  2. Casey Fien had four strikeouts in one inning, which is always interesting. Too bad it wasn’t an indicator of the quality of his outing. He got touched up pretty bad in his first inning.
