Scores, news, and notes from the Detroit Tigers’ farm system on Monday, May 14, 2018.

Toledo Mud Hens: off day

The Hens were off on Monday after 17 consecutive days of baseball. The first place Mud Hens (23-12) will take on the Charlotte Knights on Tuesday at 6:35 p.m. ET. Josh Turley (2-1, 3.86 ERA) will start against Dylan Covey (3-1, 2.76 ERA).

Binghamton Rumble Ponies 6, Erie SeaWolves 5 (box)

Erie jumped out to an early lead and padded it with a run in the fifth, but relievers Jeff Thompson and Zac Houston combined to allow four runs in the sixth and seventh. Houston took the loss, his first of the year, after Erie’s offense couldn’t tie the score in the final couple innings. Jake Rogers had a big game for Erie, collecting three hits, including his first home run of the year. Will Maddox also had a big game with four hits. Starter Kyle Funkhouser wasn’t particularly efficient, but had a solid outing with two runs (one earned) in five innings. He struck out seven.

Maddox: 4-5, 2 R, SB
Rogers: 3-5, HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, SO
Woodrow: 2-3, 2B, R, RBI, SO, SB
Funkhouser: 5.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R (1 ER), 2 BB, 7 SO

Coming up next: Tyler Alexander will start for Erie on Tuesday as the SeaWolves continue their series against Binghamton.

Lakeland Flying Tigers 9, Charlotte Stone Crabs 4 (box)

The Flying Tigers scored all nine of their runs in the eighth inning, capping off a comeback win over the Stone Crabs. Chad Sedio, Cole Bauml, and Austin Athmann had two hits apiece, and the Flygers finished with 10 hits on the game. They also benefited from six walks by Charlotte pitching, two of which came with the bases loaded.

Reliever Burris Warner took the loss after giving up an unearned run in the third.
