Toledo 7, Scranton 3 (Yankees)

Duane “lookout” Below (LHP) struck out 9 batters in 6 innings of work en route to a win. He allowed just 2 ER on 6 hits and 2 walks. On the year, Below has a 3.52 average with 57 K’s in 69 IP. Ryan Perry threw two innings of 1-run ball with 3 K’s to earn his first save at AAA.

Magglio went 3-5 with a run scored, a double, and a run batted in. Ryan Strieby (1B) also went 3-5 with a double, but Strieby drove in 3 to lead the Mud Hens. Timo had 2 hits and 2 runs scored. Will Rhymes went 3-5.

Erie 3, Harrisburg 1 (Nationals)

Luke Putkonen (RHP) earned his first win in 11 starts after he threw 7 innings of scoreless, 4 hit baseball. Putkonen did not walk a batter and struck out 4. Austin Wood (LHP) got the save after he recorded the final 2 outs.

Rawley Bishop (1B) had 2 hits and 2 runs scored in 4 ABs. He drove in 1. Audy Ciriaco (SS) went 2-3 with a 2B and 2 RBI.

Lakeland 2, Tampa 5 (Yankees)

Trevor “Mr.” Feeney (RHP) pitched a heck of a game: 8 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K. Unfortunately, his offense didn’t back him up and he took the loss. Tyler Stohr (RHP) gave up 3 ER in the top half of the 9th.

Tony Plagman (1B) had the only night to speak of offensively as he went 2-3 with a RBI and a BB. Wade Gaynor (3B) went 0-4 with 3 K’s.

West Michigan 6, Cedar Rapids 1 (Angels)

Feeney wasn’t the only minor leaguer to pitch a brilliant game Saturday night, Jose Carreno (RHP) gave up just 1 unearned run over 8 innings. He allowed only 4 hits and 1 walk while striking out 8. Deservedly, Carreno was the winning pitcher of record. Michael Torrealba (RHP) gave up a hit and a walk in an inning of relief.

Dixon Machado lead the Whitecaps with 3 RBI after a bases-clearing, two out,  triple in the 4th. Nick Castellanos went 1-3 with 2 RBI and a walk. Jeff Rowland had the other RBI after he went 1-2 with 2 walks.

Hernan Perez (2B) went 1-4 with a run scored. Through nearly 200 ABs, Perez is hitting .325 with 12 steals. He’s only 20 and will undoubtedly develop some additional power as he matures. Please promote this man.
