Adam Wilk caught the loss after surrendering two runs, one of which was earned, over 5.1 innings. But before we anoint Wilk a savior, bear in mind he allowed six hits and struck out only one batter. He is what he is- a finesse guy. Al Alburquerque struck out five in two innings of work. The offense was lacking: a homer by Clete Thomas consisted of Toledo's run production today.
Mark Sorensen could have had worse results: allowing two home runs and two walks in five innings isn't exactly the best thing in the world. And yet he squeaked by, limiting the damage to three earned runs. Austin Wood struck out six over three hitless innings of work, and Chance Ruffin struck out one while allowing one hit. Offensively, Bryan Pounds was 3-4 with two doubles, Jamie Johnson was 1-4 with a double and a walk and Deik Scram was 2-4 with a double.
Victor Larez dominated Dunedin for seven innings, giving up a mere four hits and striking out four batters. Wade Gaynor was 1-4 with a homer and Gustavo Nunez was 2-4, though he got picked off as well.
Kevin Eichhorn could only go four innings against the Loons, though he didn't give up any runs. James Robbins was 1-3 with a walk and Luis Castillo (no, not that Luis Castillo) was 1-2 with a walk. They were the only Whitecaps with more than one base in this game. Nick Castellanos is still hitless.
