Detroit Tigers LHP Kyle Lobstein - USA TODAY Sports

In Saturday's action, Toledo couldn't muster any offense in a close loss; Kyle Lobstein out-dueled Jamison Taillon in an Erie win; Charles Gillies picked up his first full-season win for Lakeland; and Austin Schotts busted out of his slump in a West Michigan loss.

Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens (7-17)

L, 2-1 vs. Norfolk. The Mud Hens were stymied by former Tiger Jair Jurrjens (and Daniel Schlereth, albeit for 1/3 of an inning), and only managed six hits all day with three of them coming from Brandon Douglas.

Advanced-A Lakeland Flying Tigers (8-14)

W, 5-1 vs. Daytona. Drew VerHagen was placed on the disabled list prior to the game, so Nick Avila needed to spot start.
