Minor League Recaps: 4/19/13

Detroit Tigers OF Prospect Daniel Fields - US PRESSWIRE

In Friday's action, Toledo swept a 1.5 header (I'll explain), Erie stays hot with Daniel Fields having a big day; Lakeland's inability to score was overshadowed by Valverde's return; and West Michigan was rained (snowed) out again.

AAA Toledo Mud Hens (5-11)

Game 1: Continuation of suspended game from Thursday. Win, 3-1 vs. Columbus. Nick Castellanos reached base 5 times, and the bullpen shut the door on the Clippers.

-LHP Jose Alvarez: 4 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, ND

-RHP Luke Putkonen: 3 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, W (1-0)

-C Bryan Holaday: 1-2, 2B (2), BB

Game 2: W, 4-3 vs. Columbus. Trevor Bauer dominated the Mud Hens for most of the afternoon, but one could argue that Shawn Hill was even better. Columbus lead for most of the game, but John Lindsey hit a walk-off 2R HR to win it for Toledo.

A+ Lakeland Flying Tigers (4-11)

L, 3-1 vs. Dunedin. Lakeland was shut down by former Central Michigan University ace Jesse Hernandez, and wasted a solid performance by their pitching staff, including Jose Valverde. Only relative unknown Tyler Hanover had more than 1 hit for Lakeland, whose offense continues to struggle mightily.

-DH Dean Green: 1-3, 2B (3), RBI, BB

-2B Tyler Hanover: 2-3, 2B (2)

A West Michigan Whitecaps (6-5)

The Whitecaps were rained out, again. Actually, as I was corrected on twitter by LHP Jordan John, the Whitecaps were actually snowed out.
