New, 6 comments

AAA: Toledo 8, Pawtucket 5

Andy Oliver got kinda lit up- he pitched 5 innings, giving up 5 earned runs on 7 hits and 3 walks while striking out 6. 2 of those 7 hits were home runs though. Casey Fien pitched 2 innings, striking out 3. Jeff Frazier was 2-4 with 2 homers and Casper Wells was 2-4 with a dinger of his own. Still looking for a bump in the walk rate from Casper...

AA: Altoona 6, Erie 3

Thad Weber allowed 6 earned runs in 6 innings of work. The damage was done on 8 hits (2 dingers) with 4 walks and 4 strikeouts. Kody Kaiser was 1-3 with a double and a walk, and Chris White was 1-3 with a double.

A+: Lakeland 7, Bradenton 6

Adam Wilk got knocked around. He went 3 innings, giving up 6 earned runs on 6 hits (2 homers) and 2 walks with 3 strikeouts. Jared Gayhart faced 6 batters in 1.2 innings- he allowed a hit and struck 4 out. Bryan Holaday was 2-4 with a homer and a walk, while Francisco Martinez was 2-4 with a double.

A: West Michigan 16, Lake County 14

Man. I'm going to link to the game story for this one. Sad news about Soto leaving aside, this was a wild ride. The pitching was forgettable, so I won't mention it. The hitting... well, it was pretty freaking incredible. Rob Brantly was 3-4 with a double and a walk. Jamie Johnson was 1-3 with 3 walks and a triple, Tony Plagman was 3-6 and Jeff Rowland was 2-5 with a homer and a walk. I wish the Tigers would do this on occasion.

SS: Staten Island 1, Connecticut 0

Look up "hard luck loss" in the dictionary and you'll find Brennan Smith's name there. He went 8 innings, allowing 1 earned run on 6 hits (a solo homer causing the run), a walk and 6 strikeouts. And he took the loss. James Robbins was 2-4 and Ryan Enos was 2-3 with a double and a walk.
