Beau Burrows and Matt Manning struggled on Memorial Day

Scores, news and notes from around the Detroit Tigers’ farms system for Monday, May 28, 2018

Toledo Mud Hens 1, Norfolk Tides 0 (box)

Drew VerHagen absolutely owned the Tides on Memorial Day. VerHagen walked a pair, but allowed just two hits over seven scoreless innings. Neither team could muster any offense, but in the seventh, Jason Krizan doubled in Dawel Lugo for the eventual game winner. Johnny Barbato picked up his fourth save.

Krizan: 1-2, RBI, BB, 2B

VerHagen (W): 7.0 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, 7 SO

Coming Up Next: The Hens will run into a familiar face to Tigers fans on Tuesday. They’ve yet to announce a starter, but Edwin Jackson will take the bump for the Syracuse Chiefs with first pitch set for 6:35pm ET.

Trenton Thunder 6, Erie SeaWolves 5 (box)

Erie built a two-run lead, and Beau Burrows was dominant through six. Unfortunately, Burrows couldn’t record an out in the seventh. Three singles, a walk and a run scored ended Burrows’ night. Trent Szkutnik came into the pressure cooker and allowed a grand slam. The Chiefs tacked on a run in the eighth, allowing them to stave off a three-run bottom of the ninth for the SeaWolves. It was A.J. Simcox smacking a three-run shot in the ninth to provide the best part of the offense for the day. Troy Montgomery had a two-hit game in the losing effort.

Simcox: 2-4, R, 4 RBI, HR, 2 SO

Burrows (L): 6.0 IP, 4 ER, 5 H, BB, 4 SO
