Tigers Minor League Wrap 8/8/2007

Once again courtesy of Mike R…

Norfolk 2, Toledo 5
Mud Hens hit 4 home runs in the ball game, most notable one was from Marcus Thames. That’s a good sign. Henry Mateo, Chris Shelton, and Andres Torres hit the other 3 homers. Yorman Bazardo improved to 10-5 with an 8 inning, 6 hit, 2 runs (1 earned), 1 walk and 1 strike out performance.

New Britain 5, Erie 2
Matt Joyce provided the offense with a 2-run homer that was his 16th of the season. Eddie Bonine pitched very well, turning the ball over to the ‘pen after a 7 inning, 7 hit, 2 run, 2 K, 0 walk performance. Randor Bierd gave up 3 hits and 3 runs without recording an out. That proved to be the difference.

Lakeland 9, St. Lucie 6
The Flying Tigers got the chance to face Pedro Martinez in his first rehab start and rocked him. Pedro gave up 6 hits, 5 runs including 2 homers while striking out 5 and walking no one in 3 innings of work. Deik Scram and Justin Justice hit the homers and Eleazar Aponte gave Lakeland a quality start.

West Michigan 15, Clinton 4
Jeramy Laster paced the offense with a 3-for-5 night including 2 homers (a 2-run and a 3-run), a double, and 8 RBI’s. Brandon Timm had 3 RBI’s and 3 hits of his own. The top 7 guys in the order were a combined 14-for-37 with 3 doubles and 2 home runs. Gorkys Hernandez stole his 44th base of the season. Jonah Nickerson had a good outing throwing 7 innings of 3-hit shutout ball with 4 strike outs and zero walks. Phil Napolitan came in for one inning 4 runs on 5 hits that included 3 doubles and a HR, but the Whitecaps offense made up for that as they only scored in 4 separate innings.

Oneonta 5, Auburn 3
Ronnie Borquin had 2 doubles and Kody Kasier drove in 2 in the win in the first game of the double header. Sean Finefrock went 6 1/3 innings striking out 4, walking 2, and allowing 3 runs (2 earned) and just 2 hits.

Oneonta 6, Auburn 5
Chris Carlson drove in half of the Oneonta runs as they completed the sweep of the doubleheader. Paul Nardozzi and Luis Gil both pitched just 2 innings apiece to open the game as they gave up a combined 5 runs on 9 hits. The final 3 innings from the Oneonta bullpen were no-hit baseball.

GCL Yankees 1, GCL Tigers 0
This was the completion of the game that wasn’t finished last night. Richard Zumaya started it and went 1 inning with 0 hits, 1 strikeout and 1 walk. He’s now got 4 strikeouts and 5 walks in 5 2/3 innings pitch.

GCL Tigers 7, GCL Yankees 9
Tigers outhit the Yankees 11 to 7 but their 2 errors lead to 7 (yes, seven) unearned runs and, ultimately, the loss. Carlos Ramirez hit a 3-run homerun and Orlando Rodriguez had 2 doubles. Nolan Chestnut was the tough luck loser for the Tigers. He pitched 2 innings in relief and surrendered 4 hits and 5 runs, all of them unearned. He struck out 3 in his effort.
