Toledo Mud Hens 9, Indianapolis Indians 1 (box)
Jacob Turner tossed a fine game, and the offense erupted in the second and seventh innings to blow out the Indians on Thursday. Turner went seven innings, allowing a run on five hits. The Hens put together a four-run second inning, capped by a two-run double by Pete Kozma. They also scored five in the eighth, with Grayson Greiner’s three-run shot the big blow of the frame. Kevin Comer leaked a run in relief by this one was never in doubt.
Greiner: 1-3, HR, 2 R, RBI, 2 BB, SO
Lugo: 3-4, 2B, 2 R, RBI
Turner (W): 7.0 IP, 5 H, ER, BB, 5 SO
Coming up next: With the victory, the Hens pull to just 2 1⁄2 games in the West Division. They will meet up again on Friday night in Toledo. No starters are announced.
Portland Sea Dogs 9, Erie SeaWolves 1 (F/7) (box)
Spencer Turnbull was victimized by his defense, then victimized himself en route to giving up six runs in just 2 2⁄3 innings. He walked one, and struck out three. Isaac Paredes made two errors at third base, while Jake Rogers and Sergio Alcantara each had one of their own. The only bright spot was a double and a run scored for new Tigers prospect, SS Willi Castro, in his debut.
Castro: 1-4, 2B, R
Sedio: 3-3, 2B
Turnbull (L): 2.2 IP, 5 H, 6 R (2 ER), BB, 3 SO
Portland Sea Dogs 5, Erie SeaWolves 0 (F/7) (box)
The defense was solid in game two, but Beau Burrows didn’t pitch much better than Turnbull did in game one. It took 87 pitches to record 11 outs, and Burrows didn’t survive the fourth inning. He walked four and struck out five, allowing two earned runs on four hits. Caleb Thielbar and Kurt Spomer leaked runs in the relief, and the offense was very quiet again.
Cameron: 1-2, 2B, SB
Castro: 1-3, SO
Burrows (L): 3.2 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 5 SO
Coming up next: The SeaWolves head to New Hampshire on Friday, and take on the Fisher Cats for a three-game series. Alex Faedo is set to take on Josh DeGraaf.
Great Lakes Loons 3, West Michigan Whitecaps 1 (box)
Jesus Rodriguez was good on Thursday night, but the offense couldn’t get going. Rodriguez went six innings, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk. Brock Deatherage and Dylan Rosa provided the Caps only run.
Deatherage: 2-4, R, SO
Rosa: 2-4, 2B, RBI, SO
Rodriguez (L): 6.0 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, BB, 6 SO
Coming up next: Brad Bass goes for the Loons on Friday night with first pitch set for 7:05 p.m. ET.
The Tigers and Yankees played a close fought game that went back and forth, but the Yankees tied it late and walked off in the ninth. Carson Lance gave the Tigers six innings of one-run ball, but it took the offense a while to get going. Wenceel Perez scampered home from third on a wild pitch in the seventh, while Cam Warner advanced to third. He came home on a sacrifice fly from Nick Ames, and the Tigers led 2-1. Dylan Stock allowed a run in the eighth, and then blew the save in the ninth.
Perez: 2-4, 2B, R
Warner: 1-4, R, SO
Lance: 6.0 IP, 5 H, ER, BB, 2 SO
Coming up next: Adam Wolf goes for the Tigers on Friday night, while Shawn Semple will throw for the Yankees.
