Minor League Recap: Wilk strikes out six, Smyly strikes out ten, pitching reigns supreme

AAA: Toledo 6, Durham 2

Adam Wilk gave up two runs (one earned) in 5.2 innings, striking out six batters but allowing a home run. Will Rhymes was 3-5, but was caught stealing once. Casper Wells tripled.

AA: Richmond 3, Erie 2

Jacob Turner gave up two home runs and three runs in eight innings. He struck out eight and walked one. The offense was pretty bad; Deik Scram was 2-3 with a double and Audy Ciriaco chipped in two hits.

A+: Lakeland 1, Palm Beach 0

Drew Smyly shut out Palm Beach for seven innings, striking out ten batters and walking two. His performance even drew comment from the Mothership (via their RSS feed). It's a very good thing that Smyly was on his game, since Wade Gaynor was the only Flying Tiger with more than one hit (he had two and a walk).

A: Clinton 4, West Michigan 3

Kevin Eichhorn is just fascinating to me. His K rate is near 20%, his walk rate has dropped since earlier this year and he was part of the return for Armando Galaragga. Anyway, Eichhorn continued his solid performance in West Michigan yesterday, giving up three earned runs in 6.2 innings, while striking out four. Clay Jones was 3-4 with a double, and Nick Castellanos also doubled.

SS: Williamsport 4, Connecticut 3

Thomas Collier struck out five and walked one over five shutout innings for Connecticut. Patrick Leyland chipped in three hits and a walk. There's also a pretty good interview with Leyland here.
