Tigers Minor League Wrap 6/28/09

Toledo 1 Indianapolis 2 (10 innings)
Ian Snell recorded 17 of his 21 outs on strikeouts, so there isn’t much offense to speak of. Brooks Brown allowed just 1 run on 5 hits and 2 walks with 4 K’s in 7 innings.

Erie 4 Harrisburg 5
Casper Wells doubled and tripled. Alex Avila and Danny Worth each had doubles and singles. Thad Weber allowed 3 runs on 7 hits in 3 innings with 3 K’s and a walk.

Lakeland 3 Sarasota 5
Chris Carlson homered. Matt Hoffman was knocked around for 5 runs on 7 hits in 6.2 innings. Brett Jacobson allowed 1 hit in 1.1 innings with a strike out.

West Michigan 8 Great Lakes 0
Casey Crosby was the story in this one with 5 innings of no hit ball with only a walk to go with 6 K’s. Robert Waite allowed a double in his 4 innings, the only hit that the Caps would allow. Gustavo Nunez was 3 for 3 with a walk. Billy Nowlin also had 3 hits. Bryan Pounds doubled twice.

Lowell 3 Oneonta 9
Alexis Espinoza went 2 for 4. Michael Rockett singled twice and homered. Jamie Johnson went 2 for 5. Luis Angel Sanz allowed 3 runs in 4 innings with 5 K’s. Cory Hamilton (23rd rd) fanned 5 and allowed just 1 hit and no walks in 3 innings.

  1. I noticed that Ian Snell struck out 13 consecutive MudHens on Sunday. Ouch.

  2. There don’t seem to be many Snells in the world; yet Ian Snell seems to be unrelated to the Nate Snell who pitched for Detroit in the late 80s.

    Oddly enough, in 1912-13 there were a Charlie Snell on the St Louis Browns and a Wally Snell on the Red Sox, neither of whom appear to be related.

    I am predicting that in about 75 years, there will be 2 MLB players with the last name Snell, who nonetheless are unrelated…
