Tigers Minor League Wrap 8/21/01

Indianapolis 0 Toledo 4
Good night for top young pitchers in the organization as Virgil Vasquez threw a complete game 2 hit shutout. He walked 1 and fanned 7. I’m a little concerned though as he threw 123 pitches. Chris Shelton hit a grand slam homer to plate all 4 runs.

Akron 5 Erie 6
Mike Hernandez, Jeff Larish, Wilkin Ramirez, and Matt Joyce all hd 2 hit games while Mike Hollimon and Kody Kirkland went deep. Eddie Bonine pitched all 7 innings allowing 5 runs on 8 hits with 2 walks and 1 strikeout.

Akron 3 Erie 1
The only offense came from Steve Torrealba who homered and walked. Cory Hamman started and went 2 2/3 innings and allowed only 3 hits, but with 3 walks leading to 2 runs.

Lakeland 1 Sarasota 7
Kyle Sleeth was knocked around for 5 runs in the first inning but stuck around through the 5th allowing 10 hits. He did fan 6 and walked only 1. The Flying Tigers had 3 hits so there’s not much to report offensively.

West Michigan 6 Great Lakes 1
Brennan Boesch had 2 hits and a walk. Jase Skelton and Jordan Newton each had 2 hits as well. It was another great outing for Charlie Furbush who allowed 5 hits, 1 walk, and 1 run while fanning 7 in 7 innings.

Vermont 7 Oneonta 3
Chris Carlson doubled and singled for the only multi hit game, and only extra base hit. Jose Fragoso allowed 2 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks in 2 innings.
