First some good news- both Jacob Turner and Giovany Soto will be representing the Whitecaps in the Midwest League All Star Game.
Onto the recaps!
AAA: Toledo DNP (off-day)
Thad Weber really stepped up for Erie. He threw 7 innings of 6 hit ball, walking 1 and striking out 6. Deik Scram was 2-4 with a triple and a stolen base, Cale Iorg was 2-5 with a homer and Andy Dirks was 3-6 with a homer.
Adam Wilk had another strong start- he went 7 innings, giving up 2 earned runs on 7 hits with 4 strikeouts. His FIP of 3.36 (and ERA of 3.30) means he's yet another member of the Lakeland rotation that deserves a promotion, and he might top out as a #4 starter control lefty. Chris White was 2-4 with a home run and Brandon Douglas was 2-5.
A: West Michigan 1, Lake County 0
Midwest League All-Star Giovany Soto threw a 3 hit complete game, walking 1 while striking out 7. Currently sporting a 2.05 ERA and a 3.29 FIP, somebody may be replacing Charlie Furbush in Lakeland soon. But that's just speculation on my part. Michael Rockett was 1-3 with a triple.
