Sorry this is late- comm exam this afternoon and I spent all night cramming...
The Hens were outhit but overcame the Clippers by two runs. Alfredo Figaro had a mediocre start, going 5.1 innings while giving up 2 earned runs on 6 hits and 4 walks (with only 2 strikeouts). Brennan Boesch went 3-4 with a double and a walk.
The pitching was better in this one- Thad Weber only gave up 2 runs in 6 innings (6 H, 1HR, 2 BB, 5 K) and Zach Simons gave up a run on 3 hits and a walk in 2 innings (with 3 K's). But the offense was non-existent, as Erie seemed to be channeling the tigers with a 2 for 15 average with runners on base. Audy Ciriaco was 2-4 with an RBI, so he gets a gold star.
Another pitching duel- this one featured Adam Wilk, who only struck out 1 while walking 2 and allowing 6 hits and 2 earned runs. He did keep the team in the game for 6.2 innings, but Matt Hoffman gave up a third run on a home run (one of two hits surrendered in his 1.1 innings on the mound). The team was 0-5 with runners in scoring position (even our minor league teams can squander!) and Kody Kaiser was 2-4 with 2 runs. Daniel Fields continues to impress in a small sample, going 1-4, but with 3 strikeouts.
This one was a slugfest, but Ramon Lebron (3 ER, 6H, 4 BB, 3K, HR) kept the team in the game for 5 innings, followed by a dominant 3 inning relief appearance by Luis Sanz (3 H, 1 BB, 4 K). The real story here is the offense- Jamie Johnson was 3-4 with 2 doubles, Jordan Lennerton was 2-4 with a homer and Wade Gaynor went 2-4 with a walk.
