AAA Toledo Mud Hens (11-28)

W, 6-3 vs. Indianapolis. Ramon Garcia was solid on the mound, and strong outings from Villarreal and Rondon helped preserve Toledo's lead late. Danny Dorn and Ben Guez both homered in the victory.

-RHP Ramon Garcia: 6 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, W (1-3)

-RHP Brayan Villarreal: 2 IP, H, 0 R, 0 ER, BB, 3 K

-RHP Bruce Rondon: IP, H, 0 R, 0 ER, BB, K, Save (6)

-DH Danny Dorn: 2-3, HR (7), 2 RBI, 2 R, BB

-RF Ben Guez: 2-2, HR (4), 2 RBI, R, BB

AA Erie SeaWolves (23-13)

W, 5-4 vs. Reading. Erie was down 4-2 in the bottom of the 8th when they loaded the bases for James McCann, who came through with a huge bases-clearing double to give Erie the lead. Justin Souza slammed the door in the 9th, and Erie climbed 10 games over .500.

-RHP Tyler Stohr: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, W (1-0)

-2B Hernan Perez: 2-4, 2 R

-3B Wade Gaynor: 2-2, 2B (5), 2 RBI

A+ Lakeland Flying Tigers (13-22)

L, 7-0 vs Palm Beach. Hudson Randall's 2nd High-A start was going much better than his first, as he had only allowed 2 runs through 6 innings. Then he unraveled a bit in the 7th inning, making his final line look less than desirable. The offense only managed 2 hits, so they didn't exactly support Randall's effort.

-RHP Hudson Randall: 6 1/3 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, L (0-2)

-RF Mike Hernandez: 1-3

-SS Brandon Loy: 1-3, 2B (4)

A West Michigan (15-19)

L, 6-2 vs. South Bend. Danry Vasquez hit his first HR of the season, but the offense could manage only 5 more hits in the loss. Devon Travis had his 20 game hitting streak snapped in this game, while Logan Ehlers was impressive out of the bullpen.

-LHP Jordan John: 4 1/3 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 K

-LHP Logan Ehlers: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, K

-RF Jake Stewart: 1-4, BB

-2B Devon Travis: 0-5

-LF Danry Vasquez: 1-4, HR (1), RBI, R

-3B Jared Reaves: 1-3, 2B (4), BB

Venezuelan Summer League (VSL) Tigers (0-1)

L, 7-1 vs. VSL Mariners. I don't know nearly enough about these guys to do a preview or anything like that, and I won't pretend to. All I know is that you should keep an eye on guys like Anthony Castro, Victor Cortez, Adrian Alfaro, and Angel Vasquez.

-CF Jose Azocar: 2-4, 2B (1), R

-DH Mario Sanjur: 2-3, 3B (1), RBI, BB

-RHP Eduardo Jimenez: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, ND

-RHP Johan Belisario: IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
