Minor League Wrap 8.5.2011

Toledo 8, Indianapolis 4 (Pirates)

Adam Wilk (LHP) started and threw a terrific game: 7 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K. Oliveros and Ruffin tried their best to ruin Wilk’s night and allowed 2 ER and 1 ER respectively in an inning and two thirds of relief. Brendan Wise (RHP) got the final out and recorded his first save of the season.

Ryan Strieby (1B)at his wheaties and then went 3-4 with 2 2B, a HR, 2 RBI, a BB, and 3 runs scored. Inge went 3-5 with a run scored and a RBI. Max St. Pierre (C) was 2-4 with a run scored and 2 RBI.

Erie 5, Harrisburg 1 (Nationals)

Drew Smyly turned in another good start for Erie and picked up his second win. He threw 5 innings while holding Harrisburg to 1 unearned run on 5 hits and 2 walks. He struck out an impressive 8 batters. It’s been rumored that Smyly is the PTBNL involved in the Fister deal – pray that it’s not true.

Jamie Johnson (CF) was 2-3 with a double and 2 RBI. Brent Douglas (2B) was 3-4 with a double, a triple, and 2 runs scored.

Lakeland 11, Daytona 5 (Cubs)

In a battle of mediocrity, Lakeland starter Jared Wesson and Daytona starter Matt Loosen, combined to allow 13 runs before the 4th inning. Our man Wesson was less bad and improved to 12-8 on the season. He ended up giving up 6 ER on 7 hits and a walk through 6 IP. Nelson and Faulk held Daytona scoreless through three.

Jordan Lennerton (1B) had a huge night: 3-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI. Shawn Roof (SS) added some more RBI support:  4-5 with 2 runs, a double, and 2 RBI. Rob Brantly (DH) went 2-5 with 2 runs and a double. Eric Roof (C) was 2-3 with 3 runs scored and a RBI.

West Michigan 3, Daytona 2 (Reds)

Brian Flynn (LHP) improved to 4-1 and turned in his second quality start in a row: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K. Torrealba earned his 5th save of the season after throwing a 2-hit 9th with 2 K’s.

Steven Moya (DH) and Curtis Casali (C) each hit solo homers. Josh Ashenbrenner (2B) drove in the final WM run and went 1-3 from the plate.

    I thought I read a couple days ago that Ruffin was going to the Ms to complete the trade? But, Ruffin couldn’t be named until August 15 due to the 1 year after being drafted rule….
