Minor League Wrap 5.14.2011

Toledo 13, Gwinnett 1 (Braves)

Every Mud Hen recorded a hit this one as the team put up Rod Allen “crooked numbers” in the 2nd, 3rd, 8th, and  9th innings to win big.  Andy Oliver (LHP) got the win after 7 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, and 5 K. The lone ER came off of a solo homerun in the 5th. Matt Hoffman (LHP) was perfect over 2 innings of relief while striking out 3.

Danny Worth (3B), Scott Thorman (LF), and Max St. Pierre (C) each had 3 RBI for the ‘Hens.

Erie 5, Altoona 6 (Pirates)

An 8th inning implosion by Chance Ruffin allowed Altoona to overcome a 5-1 deficit and sneak away with a win. Before Ruffin’s awful 8th inning, Jacob Turner (RHP) had pitched 7 innings and allowed 2 ER off of 5 hits and 1 walk while striking out 4. His ERA over 7 starts is 2.58.

Brandon Douglas (2B) went 4-5 with two runs scored. Audy Ciriaco (SS) went 2-4 and led the team with 2 RBI.

Lakeland 3, Charlotte 4 (Rays)

Trevor “Mr.” Feeney (RHP) allowed 4 ER over 7 innings of work to take the loss. Feeney didn’t walk a batter while striking out 2. Matt Little (RHP) pitched an inning of relief and allowed a hit but nothing else.

Ryan Soares (SS) had a quality night offensively: 2-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI. Gustavo Nunez (SS) recorded the other RBI for the Flying Tigers.

West Michigan 1, Lake County 2 (Indians)

Lake County led 2-0 before Nick Castellanos (3B) went yard for a solo-shot in the 7th. However, on a night where the ‘Caps could only muster 4 hits, that’s all the offense they could generate.

Despite a quality start, Kyle Ryan (LHP) recorded the loss. Ryan threw 7 innings and allowed 7 hits, 2 walks, and 2 ER while striking out 3. His ERA for the year is a respectable 3.27.
