GCL Tigers 0 GCL Yankees 1
Joaquin Guzman and Brent Clevlen (is it me or is this a really lengthy lower minors rehab stint?) had the only hits for the Tigers. Aaron Furhman allowed just 3 hits and 1 run with 6 K’s in 5 innings.

GCL Yankees 3 GCL Tigers 6
Derek Lehrman homered and singled. Brent Clevlen had 2 hits. Londell Taylor continues not to hit. He’s now 1 for 25. With only 5 strikeouts he is batting .050 on balls in play, I’d guess that part of it is a little bad luck. Charles Furbush allowed 3 runs on 4 hits, no walks, and 4 K’s in 3 innings.
