MLM Recap: Zach Simons faces 6 batters, strikes them all out

First, an in-depth look at the roster moves since... like 3 days. Matt Wallace has the goods. The major ones are of course Zumaya on the DL, Fien getting the call-up, Ni and Schlereth switching places, Brayan Villareal coming back from a short DL stint, Robbie Weinhardt going back to Toledo from his rehab assignment, Ramon Lebron going to the GCL and Cale Iorg hitting the DL. And that's just the major moves. Tons more from Wallace, go check it out.

Recap time!

AAA: Gwinnett 4, Toledo 2

Hey, at least we only lost by 2 runs today. The summer of discontent continues for Toledo, as Alfredo Figaro caught the loss today- he went 6.2 innings, giving up 4 runs on 8 hits, 2 walks and 7 strikeouts. His ERA looks ugly (4.59), but his FIP is about .75 points lower than that, so he's getting unlucky big time. Jon Weber was 1-3 with a walk.

AA: Richmond 2, Erie 1 (12 innings)

Speaking of summers of discontent, Erie lost their 10th in a row- fourth straight on a walkoff according to their homepage. Charlie Furbush was solid over 7 innings- he gave up one run on 5 hits (and a homer), 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. Zach Simons one-upped him though- he pitched 2 hitless innings with 6 strikeouts. Pretty sure that's not a typo. Alden Carrithers was 0-2 with 2 walks.

A+: Clearwater 8, Lakeland 6

Jacob Turner got shelled in his 3.2 innings- he gave up 5 earned runs on 9 hits (a homer among them), 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. Blech. Gustavo Nunez must have read my post- he was 2-4 with a walk. Daniel Fields was 2-4 with a triple and Brent Wyatt was 2-3 with a homer and a walk.

A: West Michigan 3, Lake County 2

Finally, a team wins. Trevor Feeney pitched West Michigan to victory, going 7 innings and giving up 2 runs (1 earned) on 6 hits (one homer), 2 walks and 7 strikeouts. Avisail Garcia was 2-4 with a homer.

SS: Tri-City 4, Connecticut 2

I like the Olde English C's. At least when they lose, they make the games close. Josue Carreno did pretty well for himself, going 5 innings and giving up 3 earned runs on 6 hits (one homer), 3 walks and 5 strikeouts. Julio Rodriguez was 2-4.
