Louisville Bats 3, Toledo Mud Hens 2 (F/11) (box)

Looking for their first sweep of the season, the Toledo Mud Hens (5-2) entered Sunday afternoon behind righthander Michael Fulmer (1-0, 0.82 ERA), hoping to close the door on their four-game road series against the Louisville Bats (3-5). Fulmer didn't disappoint, striking out seven over 5 1/3 innings; holding the Bats to two runs and walking three. Run support ran slim with Cameron Maybin leading the pack with a pair of hits, contributing to just six hits on the day for the Mud Hens.

Taking the day into extras, the rehabbing Maybin, on assignment to Toledo for an injured wrist was struck on the same wrist in the 10th, leaving the game. In relief, Toledo righty Warwick Saupold (0-1, 3.60 ERA) worked out of a bases loaded jam in the 10th, but an RBI single in the 11th lifted the Bats over Toledo, handing Saupold the loss.

Maybin: 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI, SO
Moya: 1-5, SO
Gonzalez: 1-2, R, BB, SO
Saupold (L): 2.1 IP, 5 H, ER, SO

Coming Up Next: Toledo heads to Indianapolis to kick off a three-game series with the Indians, sending Matt Boyd (1-1, 1.64 ERA) to the hill for game one.

Binghamton Mets 4, Erie SeaWolves 0 (box)

After dropping Saturday's contest to the Erie SeaWolves (4-6), "slow and steady" proved to be a successful mantra for the Binghamton Mets (5-3) to chip away at Erie righthander Austin Kubitza (1-1, 4.66 ERA) in the series curtain call at Jerry Uht Park. Working four innings for the SeaWolves, Kubitza fanned five, surrendering three runs off five hits and unfortunately couldn't find the run support to back him.

Jason Krizan punched a pair of hits for Erie at the plate, but Erie struggled to produce, finishing at 5-for-29 on the day. Kubitza picked up his first loss of the year as Erie is handed the shutout.

Krizan: 2-3
A. Gonzalez: 1-4
Harrell: 1-1
Bortnick: 0-4, 3 SO
Kubitza (L): 4.0 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 SO

Coming Up Next: In their final home stand before hitting the road again, Erie welcomes the Bowie Baysox (3-7) to The Uht for a three-game series beginning Monday, with righty Cory Riordan (1-0, 2.53 ERA) getting the start.

Bradenton Marauders 1, Lakeland Flying Tigers 0 (box)

The Lakeland Flying Tigers (5-6) rode back to back victories coming into Sunday's contest against the Bradenton Marauders (4-7). Lakeland righthander Endrys Briceno (0-1, 10.32 ERA) took the hill for the Flying Tigers, working a strong six inning stretch by holding the Marauders to just one run and striking out a pair for Lakeland. After going 2-for-9 in his previous three games, Lakeland catcher Grayson Greiner came through with a three-hit day, knocking a double and adding to the nine total hits for the Flying Tigers.

The single run allowed to the Marauders proved enough to outweigh the Flying Tigers, forcing the loss to Briceno, his first of the year.

Greiner: 3-4, 2B, SO
Simcox: 1-4, 2B
Briceno (L): 6.0 IP, 6 H, ER, BB, 2 SO

Coming Up Next: The Flying Tigers look to conclude their road series with the Marauders on Monday in the finale slated for 6:30 pm. Tyler Alexander (0-1, 4.00 ERA) is slated for the Monday start for Lakeland.

Dayton Dragons 1, West Michigan Whitecaps 0 (box)

If you came looking for offense, the four-game series finale between the West Michigan Whitecaps (5-5) and the Dayton Dragons (2-9) was not your best option. The two clubs combined for a meager 7-for-53 at the plate at Fifth Third Field in Dayton on Suunday.

Getting the start for West Michigan, 19-year-old righty Beau Burrows (0-1, 4.15 ERA) showed exactly what all the buzz was about since joining the organization, tossing five strong innings of two-hit scoreless work, striking out four against Dayton. At the plate for West Michigan, Derek Hill and Cam Gibson notched the only three hits on the day for the Whitecaps, two coming from Hill, including a double. The pitcher's duel eventually fell in Dayton's favor when a sacrifice fly from Hector Vargas moved the winning run in for the Dragons.

Hill: 2-4, 2B, 2 SO
Gibson: 1-3, SO
Boardman (L): 3.0 IP, 2 H, ER, SO

Coming Up Next: West Michigan returns home on Monday to begin a three-game home stand against the Lake County Captains. West Michigan sending lefty Eudis Idrogo (0-1, 12.27 ERA) to the hill for game one.
