New, comments

Scores, news and notes from around the Detroit Tigers’ farm system for Saturday, June 3, 2018.

Toledo Mud Hens 8, Lehigh Valley IronPigs 7 (box)

The Hens jumped all over Tom Eshelman, scoring seven runs in the first innings. Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s three-run shot was the big blow, though Mikie Mahtook, Christin Stewart, Dawel Lugo and Mike Gerber were all in on the scoring. Meanwhile, Tyler Alexanders’ Triple-A debut was not going well at all. He gave up five runs in the first two innings, eventually making it through five innings with six runs charged to his name. He got the win, of course. Dawel Lugo doubled home Saltalamacchia in the top of the ninth to put the Hens up two runs. It’s a good thing, as Philippe Aumont allowed a run in the bottom half of the frame, but hung on.

Saltalamacchia: 1-3, 2 R, 3 RBI, HR, BB

Lugo: 2-5, R, RBI, 2B, SO

Alexander (W): 5.0 IP, 6 ER, 10 H, BB, 3 SO, HR

Coming Up Next: A.J. Ladwig will duel the IronPigs’ Ben Lively at 1:35pm ET on Sunday.

Akron RubberDucks 5, Erie SeaWolves 4 (F/10)(box)

Beau Burrows appears to be hitter another gear for the Erie SeaWolves. For the second straight outing, he dominated the opposing lineup for six innings on Saturday. With two outs in the fifth, he allowed a solo shot to Sicnarf Loopstok. It was the RubberDucks’ first hit of the day. Burrows came back with a pair of strikeouts in the sixth, and for the second straight start, had posted a brilliant six-inning outing. Unfortunately, like the last one, he again came out for the seventh. Burrows gave up a single, hit a batter, and then allowed a double and a sacrifice fly. Not a bad outing at all though. Burrows went 6 23 innings, struck out six and allowed three earned runs. Lately he feels like a pitcher on the verge of a breakthrough.

Jacob Robson and Sergio Alcantara were the standouts on offense in this one. Robson had two hits and scored a pair or runs, while Alcantara tripled, walked, stole two bases and had an RBI along the way. The SeaWolves tied things at three in the 8th inning, and took the lead in the top of the tenth when a throwing error allowed Danny Woodrow to scamper home. Unfortunately things got sloppy in the tenth. A pair of errors with a runner starting on second is a bad recipe. Joe Navilhon doesn’t deserve a whole lot of blame for the loss.

Robson: 2-5, 2 R, 2 SO

Rogers: 1-3, R, 2 BB, SO, 2 SB

Burrows: 6.2 IP, 3 ER, 3 H, 2 BB, 6 SO, HR

Coming Up Next: The rubber game against the RubberDucks will feature Sandy Baez taking on Zach Plesac on Sunday at 2:05pm ET.

Daytona Beach Tortugas 9, Lakeland Flying Tigers 6 (box)

Eudis Idrogo was solid on Saturday, and a big fourth inning from the Flygers staked him to a two-run lead. However Wladimir Pinto, Trey Teakell and Eduardo Jimenez each leaked runs like a sieve and the offense couldn’t mount enough of a comeback. Zac Shepherd’s grand slam in the fourth was the big blow, while Isaac Paredes and Danny Pinero each doubled in this one.

Paredes: 2-5, R, 2B

Shepherd: 2-4, R, 4 RBI, SO

Idrogo: 5.0 IP, 2 ER, 3 H, 2 BB, 4 SO

Coming Up Next: The Flying Tigers will look to salvage one game from the four-game set on Sunday.

Bowling Green Hot Rods 7, West Michigan Whitecaps 2 (box)

In an uncharacteristic outing, Dane Myers didn’t give his team a chance in this one. He lasted 5 13 innings, surrendering five earned runs on seven hits. Jordan Pearce hit a solo shot as part of a two-hit day. Dylan Rose doubled and scored a run. Felix Vittoria allowed two runs in relief, but they were inconsequential.

Pearce: 2-3, R, RBI, HR, BB, SO

Rosa: 1-4, R, 2B, SO

Myers: 5.1 IP, 5 ER, 7 H, 2 BB, 2 SO, 2 HR

Coming Up Next: Matt Manning has struggled on the road this season. He’ll look to handle the Hot Rods on Sunday as he takes on Tobias Myers.
