Minor League Wrap 5.5.2011

Toledo 5, Charlotte 10 (White Sox)

The Mud Hens bats were able to put up 5 ER on Jake Peavy but still fell short. Adam Wilk (LHP) took the loss after allowing 6 ER in 4 innings. Robbie Weinhardt allowed 2 ER in 2 2/3 innings of relief.

Ryan Strieby went 1-4 with a homer and 2 RBI. Andy Dirks (CF) went 2-4 with a run scored.

Erie 1, Binghamton 7 (Mets)

Binghamton pitching completely stymied the SeaWolves until the top of the 9th when the Wolves put up 1 run on a Rawley Bishop (1B) RBI double. Over 7 IP, the Erie starter, Mark Sorensen (RHP) allowed 11 hits and a walk, resulting in 7 earned runs. Chance Ruffin (RHP) threw an inning of relief and did not allow a run on 1 hit.

No SeaWolf got more than one hit  and only two were for extra bases.

Lakeland 1, Clearwater 5 (Phillies)

This game was tied 1-1 through the 5th inning before Clearwater added 2 runs in the 7th, 1 in the 8th, and 1 in the 9th to ice it. Cole Nelson (LHP) received the loss for Lakeland: 5.1 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 6 K. Kenny Faulk (LHP) threw another scoreless inning of relief. For the year, Faulk has pitched 12 2/3 innings and allowed 1 ER and struck out 20 opposing batters. I think he may take the trip north to Erie before too long.

Julio Rodriguez (C) had a terrific night with the bat: 3-3 with a double to bring his season average to .324. Avisail Garcia (RF) collected the only RBI of the night for Lakeland.

West Michigan 3, Great Lakes 1 (Dodgers)

It took West Michigan 12 innings to beat Great Lakes and save the farm from a daily sweep. Antonio Cruz (LHP) must have angered the baseball gods because karma was not on his side tonight. Cruz threw 8 innings of 6 hit, 1 run baseball but did not get the run support for a win. Patrick Cooper (RHP) pitched the final two innings and struck out 3 to earn the win.

Castellanos, Robbins, and Castillo each recorded two hits for the Whitecaps. Nick Castellanos (3B) went 2-5 and picked up 2 RBI. Hernan Perez (2B) got the other RBI for the ‘caps on a sac fly.
