Tigers Minor League Wrap August 6th

Toledo 8 Louisville 10
Jeff Larish homered twice. Brent Clevlen had 4 hits and was a triple short of the cycle. Dusty Ryan homered picking up his 5th XBH in 4 games at Toledo. But Eddie Bonine allowed 6 runs in 6.1 innings while Clay Rapada and Brian Rogers were each tagged for a pair of runs in relief.

Harrisburg 2 Erie 11
Casper Wells had a day with 3 homers and 5 RBI. James Skelton homered and walked twice. Deik Scram and Pedro Cotto also homered. Lucas French fanned 8 and walked 1 in 7 innings.

Clearwater 5 Lakeland 1
Dontrelle Willis made the start. He allowed 3 singles and 2 wild pitches in the first inning, but then retired the next 12 hitters. In his 6th inning he allowed 2 singles, but then struck out the side. In the 7th he was touched up for a triple, a double, an error and two singles. His final line was a non-inspiring 6.1 innings, 10 hits, 5 runs, no walks and 6 strike outs. But from the game log it definitely seems encouraging.

West Michigan 5 Great Lakes 0
Joe Tucker had 3 hits and Ronnie Bourquin had 3 walks. Kody Kaiser homered and drove in 3. Jon Kibler pitched the complete game 2 hit shut out with no walks and 9 K’s.

Oneonta DNP

    Two wild pitches for Willis raises a red flag, although the size of that flag is debatable. It’s entirely possible those wild pitches would have been avoided if not for Devin Thomas being the guy tasked to prevent them.
