Toledo Mud Hens 3, Columbus Clippers 1 (box)
Ryan Carpenter was on fire Monday evening in Toledo. He struck out 10 Clippers, throwing seven innings of one run ball. Christin Stewart provided the offense again, smoking a two-run shot to right field in the sixth off Adam Wilk. The home run was Stewart’s seventh on the young season.
Stewart: 3-4, 2B, HR, R, 2 RBI
Mahtook: 1-3, R, BB, SO
Carpenter (W): 7.0 IP, 5 H, ER, BB, 10 K
Coming up next: Drew VerHagen will take on Shane Bieber in a Tuesday morning special with first pitch set for 10:35 a.m. ET.
Harrisburg Senators 5, Erie SeaWolves 3 (F/11) (box)
Sandy Baez had an interesting day at the office. The righthander allowed three hits in six innings, but two were solo shots. He also walked four and struck out six. Two earned runs in six innings is good enough to win, but the SeaWolves offense only managed three hits of their own despite the game stretching 11 innings. Matt Hall and Mark Ecker pitched well in middle relief, but Gerson Moreno couldn’t hold off the Senators’ final push.
Eaves: 1-3, R, 2 BB, SO
Baez: 6.0 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 6 SO
Coming up next: The joy that is Bark at the Park Night will hit UPMC Park on Tuesday evening. Spencer Turnbull will face Brady Dragmire in front of a crowd of very good baseball dogs.
Lakeland Flying Tigers 3, Clearwater Threshers 2 (box)
Austin Sodders looks like he is settling into a groove. He gave the Flying Tigers seven innings of two-run ball on Monday, striking out six. The Flygers pulled out a tense, well-pitched game. Blaise Salter drove in a pair of runs in the fourth and the game went to the bottom of the ninth all tied up. Danny Woodrow singled, stole second and raced all the way home to walk off the Threshers when the catcher’s throw went into center field.
Woodrow: 2-4, 2 R, SO, SB
Salter: 1-3, 2B, 2 RBI
Sodders: 7.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R (1 ER), BB, 6 SO
Coming up next: Anthony Castro will look to bounce back after a pair of rough outings. He take on the Threshers’ Adonis Medina at 10:35 a.m. ET on Tuesday.
Clinton LumberKings 8, West Michigan Whitecaps 7 (F/10) (box)
The LumberKings and Whitecaps got into a bit of donnybrook on Monday. Both offenses erupted in the middle innings, and when this one ended in the bottom of the 10th, the LumberKings had landed the last punch. Garett King got knocked around for four innings, while three consecutive relievers issued three or more walks and were lucky to limit the damage. Catcher Joey Morgan homered for the Whitecaps, and they racked up nine walks and fifteen hits total in the losing effort.
Rosa: 3-6, 2B, R, RBI, SO
Peterson: 3-5, 2 R, BB
Morgan: 1-4, HR, R, RBI, BB, SO
