Minor League Wrap 5.10.2011

Toledo 1, Lehigh Valley 3 (Phillies)

Toledo scored one run in the bottom of the 9th to make it interesting, but the late effort was futile and Adam Wilk (LHP) took the loss despite a quality start: 7 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 6 K. Lester Oliveros (RHP) added two innings of relief and allowed only one hit.

Only two Mud Hens got hits in the game: Dirks and Diaz. Andy Dirks (LF) went 3-4 with an RBI and Argeniz Diaz (3B) went 2-4 with a 3B and a run scored.

Erie 8, Akron 5 (Indians)

5 SeaWolf pitchers saw action in this one. Sorensen got the win after 6 IP, 7 H, and 1 Run (0 ER). Hamilton and Gayhart attempted to spoil the start and allowed 1 ER and 3 ER, respectively, in 2/3 innings of work. Chance Ruffin (RHP) struck out 3 in 1 2/3 to pick up the save.

Ben Guez (RF) picked up 3 RBI on 2-4 hitting with a double and a triple. Douglas (2B), Johnson (CF), and Henry (LF) added an RBI each. Rawley Bishop (1B) went 0-4 with 2 K’s.

Lakeland 10, St. Lucie 2 (Mets)

Jay Voss (LHP) recorded the win with the following line: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K. His ERA for the year is at 3.05 with a 2-0 record. Matt Little (RHP) and Michael Morrison (RHP) combined for three scoreless innings of relief.

Jordan Lennerton (DH) went 2-4 with 1 HR and 4 RBI. He also scored three runs and drew a walk. Wyatt (LF) and Gaynor (3B) added 2 RBI each.

West Michigan 1, South Bend 6 (Diamondbacks)

Antonio Cruz (LHP) received the loss after 5 ER in 5 IP. Logan Hoch (LHP) allowed another ER in 2 innings of relief work.

Ryan Hamme (RF) recorded the only RBI for the ‘caps on a 1-2 night.

West Michigan 5, South Bend 0

West Michigan led wire to wire but put it out of reach with a 4-run 5th inning. Jeff Ferrell (RHP) got the win after 5 shutout innings  with 5 K’s. Patrick Cooper (RHP) threw two perfect innings of relief to preserve the win.

Luis Castillo (CF) went 2-2 on the night. Hernan Perez (2B) went 1-2 with a HR.
