Down on the Farm: Minor League Recaps for June 4, 2013


Toledo lost in a slugfest, Erie went to extra innings, and Lakeland blanked the Mets in yesterday's minor league action.

Lots more offense from the Tigers system yesterday, but the pitching in the high minors was suspect. Here's what went down.

Columbus Clippers 11, Toledo Mud Hens 8 (box)

Despite a seven-run fifth inning, the Mud Hens weren't able to overcome the eight runs that Shawn Hill allowed in an inning-plus of work. He dropped to 0-7 on the season. Al Alburquerque allowed a home run and two walks in 1 2/3 innings, but all five of his outs were strikeouts. Brayan Villarreal struck out the only batter he faced. Nick Castellanos stayed hot, hitting another home run and reaching base three times. Danny Dorn had four of the team's seven RBI.

Erie Seawolves 8, Portland SeaDogs 7 (box)

A day after blowing a save, Justin Souza vultured a win when Daniel Fields hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the 12th inning. Fields, Hernan Perez, and James McCann each had three hits for Erie. Tyler Collins added two RBI on a double and two walks. Starter Ramon Garcia only lasted 3 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on nine hits and three walks.

Lakeland Flying Tigers 5, St. Lucie Mets 0 (box)

Mike Hernandez hit a three run homer and added a fourth RBI on a single later in the game to pace Lakeland's offense. Tyler Hanover added three hits, while Jeff McVaney and Jason Krizan had two hits apiece. Hudson Randall allowed five baserunners through eight innings for his first win of the season.
