Tigers Minor League Wrap – 5/17/07

Louisville 0 Toledo 1
Zach Miner wasn’t the only guy in the organization who had to change plans in the early morning. Jon Connolly was called up from Erie to start in Miner’s place for the Mud Hens and threw a 1 hitter. Actually, both pitchers threw 1 hitters, and with it being only a 7 inning game due to the doubleheader, it was completed in 1:28. Chris Shelton doubled, walked, and was hit by pitch to constitute all the Mud Hen offense.

Louisville 3 Toledo 4
Mike Hessman had 2 hits, including his 10th homer, and a walk. Jack Hannahan added 2 hits as well. Jeremy Johnson allowed 3 runs on 3 hits, walking none and fanning 5 over 6 innings.

Jeff Larish had 2 hits to lead the Wolbes attack. Dallas Trahern went 7 innings allowing 5 runs on 2 hits, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts. Kyle Sleeth pitched 2 innings allowing only 1 hit.

    What Manny said. I mean, thanks a lot of continually keeping us informed on the minor leaguers. I’m glad Connolly had a good outing.
