MLM Recap: Charlie Furbush dominates, Jacob Turner struggles

Interesting story from Lynn Henning (when he's not talking trades he's quite enjoyable) about Al Avila's new (temporary) job as minor league coordinator. Gotta be a fun job.

Recap time!

AAA: Toledo 9, Columbus 4

Well it's about time. Larry Parrish has right to be extra happy- he's the winning-est manager in Mudhens history. Congrats to the skipper, and onto the game. Alfredo Figaro got the start and the win by going 6 innings, giving up 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits (1 homer) with 3 walks and 5 strikeouts. Josh Rainwater pitched an inning, giving up a hit and a strikeout. Scott Sizemore, in his return from the disabled list, was 3-5 with a double and Wil Rhymes was 2-4 with 2 doubles.

AA: Erie 8, Bowie 3

Charlie Furbush had his first dominant performance in AA- 2 earned runs allowed in 7 innings. He let up 4 hits (and a homer) with 2 walks to 11(!!!) strikeouts and a groundout/flyout ratio of 7-3. Anthony Shawler struck out 3 in 2 innings of work, allowing 3 hits and an earned run as well. Rawley Bishop was 2-4 and Bryan Pounds was 2-3.

A+: Dunedin 5, Lakeland 3 (Game 1)

Jon Kibler went 5 innings, surrendering 4 earned runs on 4 hits and a walk with 4 strikeouts. Brandon Douglas was 3-4 with a double and a triple (a homer shy of the cycle).

Dunedin 6, Lakeland 1

This is what happens when you promote a 19 year old into a league full of 21 year olds. Turner got lit up in 4.2 innings, giving up 6 earned runs on 8 hits (one homer) and 2 walks with 3 strikeouts. Don't panic quite yet- it's been 3 starts and Turner is really young for the league. Jose Ortega struck out a batter in a hitless inning. Brandon Douglas was 3-4 and Daniel Fields was 1-3 with a walk.

A: Dayton 7, West Michigan 3

Trevor Feeney got hit hard in his 5 innings- he let up 11 hits (4 of which were doubles) and a walk en route to giving up 5 earned runs. He did pick up 4 strikeouts, though. Zach Samuels pitched an inning and got 3 strikeouts. Michael Rockett was 2-4 with a homer and Wade Gaynor was 1-3 with a double and a walk.

SS: Connecticut 5, Mahoning Valley 4

Josue Carreno pitched 5 innings, giving up 4 runs (though only 2 were earned) on 5 hits and 3 walks with 4 strikeouts. Michael Torrealba ptiched 3 innings, allowing a hit, a groundout and 8(!!!) strikeouts. Alexander Nunez was 4-5 with a triple.
