Matt Hall dominates in SeaWolves’ victory

Scores, news and notes from around the Detroit Tigers’ farm system for Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Toledo Mud Hens 8, Columbus Clippers 3 (box)

With a run already in, Bryan Holaday launched a three-run home run in the first inning, and the Hens never looked back. In the fourth inning, it was Jeimer Candelario with a two-run double to cap off another four run inning and make it 8-0. Myles Jaye went six innings and kept the Clippers in check despite four walks. Kyle Ryan was dinged up for three in the seventh inning, but Logan Kensing and Bryan Garcia slammed the door.

Candelario: 2-4, R, 2 RBI, 2B, 2 SO

Holaday: 3-4, R, 3 RBI, HR

Jaye (W): 6.0 IP, 6 H, 4 BB, 3 SO

Coming Up Next: Buck Farmer (6-4, 3.93 ERA) starts Thursday on Holy Toledo Thursday-Pride Night in Hensville Park.

Erie SeaWolves 1, Richmond Flying Squirrels 0 (F/12) (box)

Matt Hall was electric in this one, striking out seven Squirrels in seven innings. Hall allowed just three hits though he did walk four. The SeaWolves needed Hall’s strong outing, as they too were kept off the board for eleven innings. Mark Ecker’s two innings of scoreless work with three strikeouts was the bullpen’s standout performance. Finally in the twelfth, Christin Stewart singled and advanced to second when Dawel Lugo reached on a error. Steven Moya then hammered a double off the wall in right field for the walkoff winner.

Lugo: 3-6, 2B

Gerber: 2-5, BB

Hall: 7.0 IP, 3 H, 4 BB, 7 SO

Coming Up Next: Tyler Alexander (7-8, 5.13 ERA) starts and Carlos Baerga Appearance night goes down on Thursday night.

South Bend Cubs 2, West Michigan Whitecaps 1 (box)

Anthony Castro had a solid outing on Wednesday, tossing five innings of two run ball. He was victimized by a ball he deflected, and another error in the inning, but was otherwise unhittable. Trent Szkutnik spun four fine innings of relief, but the offense, other than Chad Sedio, was quiet.

Sedio: 2-4, RBI, 2B

Castro: 5.0 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 3 SO

Coming Up Next: Eudio Idrogo (6-6, 2.90 ERA) starts on Thursday.

Connecticut Tigers 5, Tri-City ValleyCats 2 (box)

Oswaldo Castillo gave the Tigers another fine outing on Wednesday. He scattered three hits and a walk, allowing an unearned run while punching out six on the night. The offense took advantage of four errors, with Joey Morgan’s three hit night being the standout performance.

Morgan: 3-4, R, RBI

Castilo (W): 6.0 IP, R, 3 H, BB, 6 SO

Coming Up Next: No starters are announced yet for Thirsty Thursday.

The Flying Tigers were rained out on Wednesday, so Kyle Dowdy (8-10, 3.17 ERA) will take the mound on Thursday instead.
