Tigers prospect Alex Faedo strikes out 5 in hard-luck loss

Scores, news, and notes from the Detroit Tigers’ farm system on Wednesday, April 11, 2018.

Indianapolis Indians 4, Toledo Mud Hens 1 (box)

Christin Stewart drove in Jason Krizan in the top of the first inning to give the Mud Hens a 1-0 lead. Unfortunately, that would be all the offense Toledo could muster in a 4-1 loss. Lugo led the way with a pair of hits, including a double, improving his average to .345 for the season. Starter Ryan Carpenter worked seven innings, but allowed four runs on eight hits with three strikeouts.

Lugo: 2-4, 2B, R, SO
Stewart: 1-3, RBI
Carpenter (L): 7.0 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 3 SO

Coming up next: Chad Bell (0-0, 2.70 ERA) is scheduled to start for the Hens on Thursday as they kick off a series against the Pawtucket Red Sox at Fifth Third Field.

Bowie Baysox 5, Erie SeaWolves 4 (box)

Mark Ecker gave up a pair of runs in the eighth and ninth inning, and the SeaWolves dropped their fourth game in a row. Troy Montgomery led the way offensively for Erie, with three hits and a pair of RBI. Jake Rogers added a pair of singles, and outfielder Herlis Rodriguez added two hits and an RBI. Sandy Baez wasn’t quite as electric as in his season debut, striking out three batters in five innings.

Montgomery: 3-4, 2B, R, 2 RBI, BB, SO
Rogers: 2-4
Rodriguez: 2-4, R, RBI
Baez: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, BB, 3 SO

Coming up next: The SeaWolves are off on Thursday. They will return to action on Friday against the Altoona Curve. Spencer Turnbull (0-0, 1.93 ERA) will make the start for Erie.

Lakeland Flying Tigers 5, Bradenton Marauders 4 (F/7) (box)

Cam Gibson drew a bases loaded walk in the bottom of the seventh to deliver a win for the Flying Tigers in the first half of their doubleheader against Bradenton. Chad Sedio scored the winning run, and was also responsible for two RBI. Danny Pinero also drove in a run with his first homer of the season. Starter Gregory Soto was inefficient, but struck out seven hitters in 4 13 innings.

Pinero: 2-3, HR, R, RBI
Hill: 1-3, 3B, R, BB, SO, SB
Paredes: 1-3, 2B

Bradenton Marauders 1, Lakeland Flying Tigers 0 (F/7) (box)

Alex Faedo allowed a run on two hits in 5 13 innings, and struck out five without walking anyone. Unfortunately, Lakeland’s lackluster offense spoiled Faedo’s dominant outing in a 1-0 loss. The Flying Tigers notched five hits, including a double from Daz Cameron. Infielder Anthony Pereira added a hit of his own, and is hitting .368 on the year.

Sedio: 2-3
Cameron: 1-3, 2B, SO
Faedo (L): 5.1 IP, 2 H, ER, 5 SO

Coming up next: Austin Sodders will start for Lakeland on Thursday as they try to split their four-game series against Bradenton.

West Michigan Whitecaps 4, Great Lakes Loons 1 (box)

Brad Bass walked four hitters in five innings, but limited the Loons to just one run on three hits. Oswaldo Castillo did some heavy lifting out of the bullpen as well, working three scoreless innings in the Whitecaps’ fourth win in a row. Offensively, the Whitecaps relied on 10 (!) walks from Great Lakes pitching; they scored four runs despite only notching three hits, including just one extra-base hit from center fielder Luke Burch.

Peterson: 2-5, R, SO
Burch: 1-2, 2B, R, 3 BB, SO
Bass (W): 5.0 IP, 3 H, ER, 4 BB, 4 SO

Coming up next: Dane Myers (0-0, 2.25 ERA) will start for the Whitecaps as they aim for their fifth win in a row at 12:00 p.m. ET on Thursday.
