Tigers Minor League Wrap – 5/11/07

Toledo 2 Pawtucket 3 14 innings
Timo Perez and Jack Hannahan homered to provide the offense. Ryan Raburn and Brent Clevlen each had 2 hits. Zach Miner had his best start of the season allowing 3 hits and 1 walks to go along with 6 K’s in 7 innings of shut out ball.

Erie 12 Akron 1
Clete Thomas was a triple short of the cycle as he racked up a 4 for 5 day plus a walk. Andres Torres was a single short of the cycle and walked. Kody Kirkland had 2 hits, a walk, and 2 stolen bases. Mike Hollimon added 2 hits and a walk and Matt Joyce had 3 walks. Jon Connolly allowed 1 unearned run over 8 innings despite allowing 9 hits and no strike outs.

Lakeland 6 Daytona 5 17 innings
Whole lot of baseball last night on the farm. Wil Rhymes was 4 for 9 and Cameron Maybin was 4 for 7 to lead the attack. There always seems to be someone who takes an 0fer on a night like this. Last night the unfortunate soul was Wilkin Ramirez who was 0 for 8 with 5 K’s – kind of like having a slump all on one night. Making it even more challenging, neither starter lasted through the 5th inning.

Cedar Rapids 2 West Michigan 4
Gorkys Hernandez went 3 for 4 and is now hitting 346/410/430. Scott Sizemore added a perfect 4 for 4 night as well. Duane Below pitched 6 shut out innings. He only allowed 4 hits and 1 walk while fanning 14.
