Indianapolis Indians 7, Toledo Mud Hens 5 (box)
Myles Jaye only last 2 1⁄3 innings, as he was knocked around for three runs on five hits and a walk. Though it wasn’t a save situation, Joe Jimenez got to work the eighth inning, and looked as good as he has since moving up to Triple-A. In his one inning of work, he got all three batters he faced, two via swinging strikeouts. Both Jason Krizan and Argenis Diaz both tallied two hits, with Diaz hitting a grand slam in the ninth.
Krizan: 2-3, BB, 2B, R, RBI
Diaz: 2-4, HR, 4 RBI
Jaye (L): 2.1 IP, 3 ER, 5 H, 1 SO, 1 BB
Jimenez: 1.0 IP, 2 SO
Coming up next: Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann will make his second rehab start for the Hens since being cleared to pitch again. For the big club’s sake, let’s hope it goes well!
Akron Rubber Ducks 4, Erie SeaWolves 1 (box)
The offense of the SeaWolves went silent as they only tallied two hits on the evening, with one coming from prospect Christin Stewart. Anthony Gose struck out twice in four at bats, lowering his average with Erie to .221. Can’t wait to see the Tigers reward him with a September call-up. Josh Turley pitched 5 1⁄3 innings, only allowing two earned runs, but gave up 10 hits and walked a batter. Adam Ravenelle threw a strong inning out of the bullpen, striking out two of the three batters he faced.
Gose: 0-4, 2 SO
Gerber: 0-3, 2 SO, 1 BB

Connecticut Tigers 6, Staten Island Yankees 4 (box)
The offense of the Tigers was led by third baseman Josh Lester, who drove in three runs and tallied three hits, including a triple. Starting pitcher Gregory Soto was erratic in his 4 1⁄3 innings of work, giving up four runs on eight hits and two walks. The Tigers scored all six of their runs within the first three innings of the game, and it was enough to withstand a rally from the Yankees in the fifth inning.
Lester: 3-4, 3B, R, 3 RBI
Woodrow: 3-5, 2B, R
Donnels: 2-3, SO, BB, R
Soto: 4.1 IP, 4 ER, 8 H, 5 SO, 2 BB
