Detroit Tigers RHP Hudson Randall - Rob Foldy-US PRESSWIRE

In Friday's action, Toledo lost despite a good day from Castellanos; Hernan Perez and James McCann continued their hot hitting in an Erie win; Avisail Garcia got his first hit of the season on rehab in Lakeland's loss, and West Michigan turned a stellar performance from Hudson Randall into a win.

Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens (7-16)

L, 5-4 vs. Durham. Casey Crosby didn't have a very good day, and Nick Castellanos homered for the third time in 4 games as Toledo loses.

-LHP Casey Crosby: 4 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, L (1-4)

-RHP Evan Reed: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K

Double-A Erie SeaWolves (11-8)

W, 7-3 vs Altoona. Five different Erie starters had two or more hits, and Robbie Weinhardt & Matt Crouse combined to throw four innings of one-run relief to preserve the win for Erie.

Advanced-A Lakeland Flying Tigers (7-14)

L, 7-3 vs. Daytona. The Flying Tigers could only muster three hits (although they walked nine times), and couldn't come up with the big hit in a key situation to provide much offense. Slade Smith and Melvin Mercedes were once again lights out of the bullpen, but Lakeland lost anyway.

-RF Avisail Garcia: 1-4, BB, SB (1)

-LF Jeff McVaney: 0-3, R, BB, SB (4)

-RHP Melvin Mercedes: IP, H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, K (0.00 ERA)

Low-A West Michigan Whitecaps (9-10)

W, 5-1 vs. Wisconsin. A three-run homer from Jake Stewart was all the offense the Whitecaps would need, as a sterling effort from Hudson Randall (combined with good work from the bullpen) was more than enough to secure a Whitecaps victory.

-RHP Hudson Randall: 6 2/3 IP, 5 H, R, ER, 0 BB, 3 K, W (2-2, 0.84 ERA on the season)

-RHP Jose Valdez: IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, K (0.00 ERA)
