MLM Recap: Luke Putkonen pitches 7 strong, Lakeland wins

AAA: Toledo v. Durham postponed

AA: Altoona 6, Erie 2

Blame Jon Kibler for this loss. He went 2.1 innings and let up 6 runs on 6 hits, 3 walks and a strikeout. Luckily, Anthony Shawler mopped up most of the damage, only allowing 1 hit in 3.1 innings of work and striking out 4. Kudos also go to Jared Gayhart who went 2.1 hitless innings, walking 1 and striking out 2. Luis Marte pitched a hitless 9th, walking 1. The offense consisted of two solo homers- one from Wilkin Ramirez (1-4) and one from Andy Bouchie (1-3, BB).

A+: Lakeland 5, St. Lucie 4

A good start by Luke Putkonen, who went 7 innings, giving up 3 earned runs on 7 hits (including a homer), 2 walks and 5 strikeouts. Kody Kaiser was 2-4 with a double, Brent Wyatt was 2-3 with a double and a walk, and Alden Carrithers added another 2 hits (he was 2-3 and also walked). Carrithers is very hot right now, but needs to move up a level (he's old for his league at 25).

A: West Michigan vs. Fort Wayne postponed
