Down on the Farm: Minor League Recaps for June 9, 2013

Runs were hard to come by in the minor league system yesterday. Lakeland's pitching did the job for them, but the rest of the system wasn't so fortunate.

Lakeland finished off a perfect week with two wins on Sunday, but the rest of the minor league system didn't fare so well.

Rochester Red Wings 3, Toledo Mud Hens 1 (box)

No homers from Nick Castellanos, but he did draw two walks. Shawn Hill allowed three runs in six inning to pick up a quality start, but he also picked up his eighth loss of the season. Both Jose Ortega and Bruce Rondon pitched scoreless innings in relief, striking out two batters apiece. The Mud Hens' offense was only able to muster four hits.

New Hampshire Fisher Cats 3, Erie SeaWolves 2 (box)

Kyle Lobstein allowed three runs in seven innings, taking the loss for Erie. He had six strikeouts and four walks. Erie's offense was led by nine-hitter Marcus Lemon, who had two doubles.

Lakeland Flying Tigers 3, Tampa Yankees 1 (box)

The Flying Tigers were able to scrape a run across against Michael Pineda, who was making a rehab start for the Yankees. Wilsen Palacios allowed a run in 6 1/3 innings for the win, striking out eight. Harold Castro had two RBI.

Lakeland Flying Tigers 2, Tampa Yankees 1 (box)

Jeff Ferrell allowed a run in five innings, picking up his third win of the year. The Flying Tigers scored two runs on just five hits. Francisco Martinez continues to play well. He had two hits -- one of them a double -- and stole his second base of the week.

West Michigan Whitecaps 4, Lansing Lugnuts 3 (box)

The Whitecaps were finally able to score today, but it took 14 hits to plate their four runs. Jeff Holm and David Gonzalez went hitless, but six of the nine starters had at least two hits. Angel Nesbitt picked up the win in relief for the Whitecaps.

Lansing Lugnuts 2, West Michigan Whitecaps 0 (box)

The offensive outburst was short-lived, as the Whitecaps were once again shut down by a Lansing starter -- though, to be fair, Toronto has some pretty good pitching in their minor league system. Julio Felix took his third loss of the year for West Michigan, allowing two unearned runs in four innings. The Whitecaps had just three hits in this one.
