New, 7 comments

Toledo 6, Indianapolis 3

SP Alfredo Figaro picked up his first Triple-A victory, as the Mudhens opened a short-series with Indy victoriously. 3B Danny Worth extended his hitting streak to four games. 2B Will Rhymes and SS Brent Dlugach each had two hits. Dlugach is batting .350.

Binghampton 7, Erie 4

Deik Scram and Santo de Leon both hit home runs -- Scram's was a 3-run variety -- but it wasn't enough for the 'Wolves to get a first victory of the year. Cale Iorg's batting average (.063) isn't hte lowest of the starters, that belongs to Micahel Bertram (.059). 2009 draftee SP Andy Oliver made his Eastern League debut by allowing five earned runs in 3-2/3 innings. He struck out four and walked four.

Lakeland 2, Brevard County 0

SP Charles Furbush and a pair of relievers combined for the Flying Tigers' shutout, a nice reversal of fortunes for the team given recent results. He struck out seven and walked one. He's repeating the Advanced-A level, by the way. Kody Kaiser and Christopher White had triples for Lakeland. Shortstop Gustavo Nunez had an RBI.

Fort Wayne 5, West Michigan 4?

Hot off the internets: this one ended with a thrill for the home fans, but no payoff. The game-tying runner (Billy Alvino) was tagged out at home trying to score on an error with two outs in the ninth. Elvin Soto had two hits for the Whitecaps. Ramon Lebron struck out five but walked four in three innings. Jose Ortega got the loss.

Of course the Whitecaps tweet that they only scored two. So uhm, take your pick.

Fort Wayne is the TinCaps, and this is their logo. Cool, no? I love the minor leagues.
