Columbus 6 Toledo 2
Interesting night in Toledo as they didn’t have a position player available to DH. Also, starting pitcher Ruddy Lugo left the game with an “injured head” after the second batter he faced singled on a “line drive to pitcher Ruddy Lugo.” I have no other details but it sounds scary.
Jeff Frazier doubled and singled. Jeff Larish drew 3 walks. Scot Drucker had a sub 1.00 ERA going into the game, but had a rough night with 5 walks and 5 runs allowed in 2 innings.
Erie 6 Altoona 4
Andy Oliver allowed 4 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks with 4 K’s in 5 innings. Brooks Brown went 3 innings to get the win allowing just 2 hits while fanning 4. Deik Scram doubled twice and homered. Audy Ciriaco doubled and walked.
Clearwater 7 Lakeland 4
Rawley Bishop went 2 for 4 with a homer and Kody Kaiser also went deep. Gustavo Nunez went 2 for 3 with a walk. Charlie Furbush gave up 11 hits in 4.1 innings, but he also struck out 7. Austin Wood (pictured above) made his 2010 debut and struck out the side.
South Bend 3 West Michigan 1
Trevor Feeney was quite good. He last 8 innings with 8 strike outs and a walk and he surrendered all 3 runs on 7 hits. Wade Gaynor had one of the 3 Whitecaps hits and the only extra base one with a double.

Akron 0 Erie 16
Thad Weber pitched a complete game no hitter. He didn’t walk a batter and he fanned 10. He did hit a batter and another batter reached on error so it wasn’t a perfect game. Deik Scram went 4 for 6 with 2 doubles and a homer. Jeff Kunkel also doubled twiced and homered.
