Minor League Recap: Andy Oliver strikes out eight, leads Toledo to victory

AAA: Toledo 4, Indianapolis 2

So have I mentioned lately that Andy Oliver is an underrated beast-in-the-making? Oliver gave up one earned run on three hits over six innings. The run came off of a home run, which isn't great. What is great? The eight strikeouts to one walk that Oliver posted over those six innings. Scott Thorman and Clete Thomas both homered.

AA: Erie 7, Binghamton 6

Jacob Turner pitched for Erie today, and he did okay. Turner went seven innings, giving up three earned runs on seven hits (one of which was a homer) with a walk and four strikeouts. For a 19 year old in AA, that's a darn good start. Jamie Johnson was 4-5 with two doubles, Bryan Holaday was 2-3 with a double and Audy Ciriaco was 2-4 with a double.

A+: Lakeland 5, Dunedin 3

Trevor Feeney was the starter for Lakeland, and he went 5.1 innings, giving up three earned runs. Gustavo Nunez was 3-4 with a double, a homer and a walk. Wade Gaynor was 2-5 with a double.

A: West Michigan 3, Great Lakes 2

Jeff Ferrell went five innings, giving up two unearned runs and striking out six. Ferrel did give up a homer, however, so the two unearned runs may not be fair. James Robbins was 2-4 with a double. Nick Castellanos also got both his first hit and first walk of the year today.
