Minor League Wrap 7.6.2011

Toledo 5, Indianapolis 1 (Pirates)

Duane Below (LHP) improved to 9-4 after 7 innings of 1-run ball as the Toledo starter. He allowed 4 hits and 4 walks while striking out 4. In 102 IP, Below has an ERA of 3.06. Schlereth allowed a walk in 1/3 of an inning and Wise finished out the game.

Carlos Guillen went 1-4 with a double and 2 RBI. Guillen was replaced in the top of the 7th by Clete Thomas. Will Rhymes was 3-5 with a double, an RBI, and two runs scored. Strieby and Iorg had an RBI each.

Erie 3, Harrisburg 4 (Nationals)

Despite a late-inning Erie rally, the starter, Brooks Brown (RHP), wound up as the losing pitcher. Brown gave up 8 hits, 3 walks, and 4 runs (3 earned) in 7 IP.

Jamie Johnson (CF) had a terrific night in the leadoff spot: 3-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI. Francisco Martinez went 1-3 with a triple, a run scored, and a walk.

Lakeland 11, Dunedin 5 (Blue Jays)

This one was tied at 2 heading into the bottom of the 7th before Lakeland put up a Rod Allen “crooked number” (7 to be exact) and ran away for the win.

Cole Nelson (LHP) started and went 4 innings. He gave up 2 ER on 6 hits and 3 walks. Victor Larez (RHP) earned the win after throwing 3 perfect innings and striking out 3 along the way. Larez was relieved by Zach Samuels (RHP) who gave up 3 runs (2 earned) in the 9th.

Tony Plagman (DH) went 1-3 with 2 runs scored, a double, 3 RBI, and 2 walks. Wade Gaynor (3B) also drove in 3 and went 3-4 with a run scored and a walk. Garica and Jones each drove in 2.

West Michigan 0, Lansing 11 (Blue Jays)

There are two good things about this contest: 1) it’s over and 2) runs don’t carry over. 4 West Michigan pitchers saw action and each allowed at least one ER. The starter, Flynn, threw just 1 2/3 innings and managed to walk 5 batters. Logan Hoch (LHP) looked worse than that as he gave up 5 ER in 3 innings and allowed 6 hits.

James Robbins (1B) had the only night worth discussing as he went 2-4. Castellanos went 1-4 with a double.
