Drew Longley a single shy of the cycle in Erie SeaWolves win

Scores, news, and notes from the Detroit Tigers' farm system on Wednesday, June 17, 2015.

Syracuse Chiefs 13, Toledo Mud Hens 5 (box)

Buck Farmer was rocked for five runs in the bottom of the first inning in a game that didn't get much better for the Mud Hens. Farmer was able to work his way through five innings while Toledo closed the gap to two runs, but a four-run sixth inning for the Chiefs salted the game away. Steven Moya had a pair of hits and two RBI for the Mud Hens, while Jefry Marte homered off former Tigers closer Jose Valverde in the ninth. Bruce Rondon was the only Mud Hens pitcher to not allow a run.

Moya: 2-5, R, 2 RBI, SO
Marte: 2-4, HR, 2 R, RBI, BB
Martinez: 1-5, R, SO
Farmer (L): 5.0 IP, 10 H, 6 ER, 2 SO
Rondon: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER

COMING UP NEXT: The Mud Hens return home tonight to kick off a four-game series with the Norfolk Tides. Zach Davies (3-4, 3.13 ERA) will start for Norfolk.

Erie SeaWolves 6, New Hampshire Fisher Cats 3 (box)

Catcher Drew Longley hit a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the 13th inning to cap off a three-hit night that left him a single shy of the cycle. Longley also scored earlier in the game, and struck out with a chance to win the game in the ninth with a runner on second. Tommy Collier was stellar for Erie, holding the Fisher Cats to one run on five hits in eight innings of work. Joe Mantiply and Drew VerHagen continued the solid work out of the bullpen, with VerHagen notching his first career relief win.

Longley: 3-6, 2B, 3B, HR, 2 R, 4 RBI, SO
Harrell: 2-5, R
Bernard: 2-6
Krizan: 2-4, 2 BB

Lakeland Flying Tigers 7, Charlotte Stone Crabs 6 (box)

After coughing up a two-run lead in the eighth inning, the Flying Tigers won in extra innings thanks to a two-out rally from Francisco Martinez and Bobby Borchering. Martinez singled and stole second base, then Borchering singled him home to take a 7-6 lead. Zac Reininger worked a scoreless 10th inning to record his first win of the year for Lakeland. Jiwan James led the Flying Tigers offense with three hits, and Javier Betancourt drove in three runs.

James: 3-5, 2 R, SO
Betancourt: 2-5, 2B, R, 3 RBI
Verlander: 1-5, 2B, 2 RBI

West Michigan Whitecaps 5, Fort Wayne TinCaps 2 (box)

The Whitecaps jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, giving starter Ross Seaton all the cushion he would need to pick up his sixth win of the season. Seaton struck out eight batters in six innings, allowing two runs on eight hits. The Whitecaps had plenty of scoring opportunities and could have won by a wider margin, but they went 1-for-17 with runners in scoring position and left nine runners on base.

Brown: 2-5, 2B, RBI, SO
Pankake: 1-4, 2B
Contreras: 2-4, RBI, 2 SO
Seaton (W): 6.2 IP, 8 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 8 SO

COMING UP NEXT: Righthander Artie Lewicki (0-1, 5.79 ERA) will make his third start of the season for the Whitecaps tonight as they continue their series with Fort Wayne. Brad Wieck will make his Midwest League debut after being named as the final player in a trade between the San Diego Padres and New York Mets from back in March.
