Minor League Wrap 7.30.2011

Toledo 4, Syracuse 3 (Nationals)

Clete Thomas hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the 11th to give the Mud Hens a thrilling victory. Adam Wilk (LHP) didn’t factor in the decision but posted a quality start: 6 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K. The only poor pitching performance of the night belonged to Lester Oliveros (RHP) who allowed 2 hits, 2 walks, and 2 ER while recording only one out. Gonzalez, Ruffin, and Marte each provided scoreless, near-perfect relief and Marte was rewarded with his first win of the year.

Inge was 1-5 with a solo homer. Timo Perez (LF) was 4-4 with a walk and 2 runs scored. Strieby, Thorman, and Thomas had one RBI each.

Erie 5, Akron 0 (Indians)

Drew Smyly (LHP) pitched a superb game in his first appearance with Erie. He lasted 7 innings, while allowing only 4 hits and 2 walks, with no runs and 8 K’s. In 14 starts at Lakeland, Smyly went 7-3 with a 2.58 ERA and 77 K’s in 80 1/3 innings of work.

Jamie Johnson (CF) was 4-5 from the plate and drove in 2 runs. Audy Ciriaco (SS) went 2-4 with a run scored, a double, triple, and RBI.

Lakeland 2, Fort Myers 9 (Twins)

William Bergolla (2B) went 1-3 and drove in 2 runs. Brian Stroud (RHP) gave up 6 ER and was the losing pitcher, Putkonen gave up 3. Bad game all around.

West Michigan 6, South Bend 4 (Diamondbacks)

Brian Flynn (LHP) improved to 3-1 after 6 solid innings: 6 H, 3 R (2 earned), 1 BB, 7 K. Torrealba recorded his 4th save after he came on in the 8th and allowed 1 hit and 1 walk over 2 innings.

Ryan Hamme (RF) had a Rod Allen “I see ya’ Ryan” kind of night: 2-5, 1 HR, 4 RBI. Castellanos also had a stellar night with the bat as he went 3-5 with 2 doubles, 2 runs scored, and a RBI.
