Minor League Wrap 7.9.2011

Toledo 5, Columbus 2 (Indians)

Andy Oliver posted a quality start but did not factor in the decision. He threw 6 2/3 innings and gave up 2 ER on 4 hits and 5 walks. Brendan Wise (RHP) recorded his first win of the season after coming on in relief of Oliver. In 1 1/3 IP, Wise held Columbus to 1 hit and 1 base runner.

Carolos Guillen DH’ed and went 2-3 with a double, a walk, and a RBI. Iorg (SS) also went 2-3 with a double, a walk, and a RBI.

Erie 6, Akron 8 (Indians)

Erie lead this contest 4-2 after 5 innings. In the bottom of the 6th, Akron put up 6 runs, most of which were charged to the starter, Mark Sorensen. As a result, Sorensen dropped to 7-7 on the year with an ERA of 6.49.

Shawn Roof (LF) drove in 3 runs on 1-4 from the plate. In 105 ABs with Erie, Roof is hitting .324 with a .393 OBP. Michael Bertram (DH) went 2-3 with 2 runs scored and a double. Johnson, Douglas, and Bishop each added an RBI.

Lakeland 5, Bradenton 4 (Pirates)

Kenny Faulk earned his 20th save after cleaning up the mess left by Matt Little. In 2/3 of an inning, Little allowed Bradenton to close a 5-1 deficit to 5-4.

Corey Jones (2B) was 1-4 from the plate but his lone hit was a 2-run homerun. Tony Plagman (DH) was 2-2 with a double, a triple, an RBI, and 2 walks.

West Michigan 11, Bowling Green 3 (Rays)

Alex Burgos (LHP) started, recorded a win, and posted the following line: 6 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 6 K. Over 37.2 IP, Burgos has K’ed 32 and has a 2.15 ERA. Patrick Cooper recorded arguably the least stressful save of the season (Cooper came on in the top of the 8th  before WM scored 4 in the bottom).

Nick Castellanos (3B) played a tremendous game. He was 3-4 with 2 homers, 3 RBI, and 3 runs scored. In his last 10 games he has 2 homers, 12 RBI, and is hitting .375 with a .395 OBP and .675 SLG. James Robbins (1B) and Jeff Rowland (LF) added 2 RBI each.

  1. Going to Mud Hens game Thursday, as I will be in Toledo for a conference.

    What are the highlights of a Hens game? Any good local beer served there? Furbush just got beat up by a sad Royals team, but he might be SP that night.
