Minor League Wrap 6.24.2011

Toledo 4, Louisville 5 (Reds)

Andy Oliver looked decent as the Toledo starter: 6 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 3 BB, 5 K. Brad Thomas, however, took the loss after giving up an ER on 3 hits and 2 walks over 2 innings.

Danny Worth and Clete Thomas each hit solo homers. Max St. Pierre (C) went 2-4 with a  double. Ryan Strieby (1B) had two doubles in 4 AB’s with a run scored and a RBI.

Erie 0, Richmond 8 (Giants)

Ramon Garcia and Jared Gayhart combined to give up all 8 runs (all earned) in 7 innings. Garcia lost to drop his record to 2-3. On the bright side, Luis Marte (RHP) struck out 2 in a perfect 8th.

As you probably predicted, there was no offensive standout to speak of. However, there was one shaggy-haired exception – Rawley Bishop (1B)  went 2-3 with a walk.

Lakeland v. Brevard County: PPd – rain

West Michigan 2, South Bend 1 (Diamondbacks)

Alex Burgos (LHP) started and lasted 6 2/3. During that span, he allowed just one ER on 4 hits with no walks while striking out 6. Bruce Rondon (RHP) recorded save number 12 after striking out the side in the 9th.

Nick Castellanos (3B) went 2-4 with a double and a run scored. James Robbins (1B) went 1-4 with a double, a run scored, and a RBI while striking out 3 times. Moya had the other RBI on a 1-3 night.
