Toledo Mud Hens: no game
Idle on Monday, the Hens will be in Rochester to take on the Red Wings on Tuesday night. Matt Hall gets the start, with first pitch set for 7:05 p.m. ET.
Erie SeaWolves: no game
Erie also had the day off on Monday. They will welcome in the Portland Sea Dogs on Tuesday night. More importantly, it’s BARK AT THE PARK, Y’ALL!
The Miracle opened up a can on Casey Mize and the Flygers on Monday. Mize, scheduled for a short outing anyway, cruised through two innings and then blew up a bit in the third. He surrendered back-to-back home runs, one to Twins top prospect, Royce Lewis, in the inning amidst quite a bit of hard contact. Wladimir Pinto attempted to take over in relief in the fourth, but was hit even harder than Mize, as was Fernando Perez after him, as the Miracle romped to victory. Danny Pinero and Cole Peterson doubled in the contest, but otherwise the lineup was quiet in this one.
Pinero: 2-4, 2B, SO
Mize (L): 3.0 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, BB, SO
Coming up next: The two clubs meet again Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. ET. No starters are announced, but Matt Manning followed Mize his last time out on August 1.
West Michigan Whitecaps 2, Dayton Dragons 1 (box)
Dane Myers tossed a beauty on Monday night, and got strong relief from Clate Schmidt as the Whitecaps held on in a nailbiter. After three scoreless innings from Schmidt, he got in a bit of trouble with two outs in the ninth, and Billy Lescher came on to get the last out and steal the save. Joey Morgan had a three hit game, while Dylan Rosa stayed hot with an RBI, a triple and a run scored.
Rosa: 1-3, 3B, R, RBI, BB, SO
Morgan: 3-3, RBI
Myers: 5.2 IP, 6 H, ER, BB, 5 SO
Coming up next: The Whitecaps are off on Tuesday. They will kick off a road series against Bowling Green at 7:35 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
Tri-City ValleyCats 7, Connecticut Tigers 4 (box)
Jose Vasquez tossed a good start, but Victor Meuses and Dylan Stock each were rocked in relief as the ValleyCats caught the Tigers and rolled to victory. Connecticut’s early lead was built off a two-run double by Gresuan Silverio in the first inning. Jordan Verdon plated Wenceel Perez in the ninth as the Tigers looked to come back, but the deficit was too great to overcome.
Silverio: 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI, BB, SO
Perez: 2-5, R
Vasquez: 6.0 IP, 4 H, R (0 ER), 3 BB, 3 SO
Coming up next: The two clubs meet up again at 7:05 p.m. ET at Dodd Stadium on Dollar Dog Tuesday.
