Riley Greene powers the Connecticut Tigers with a big night

Scores, news, and notes from around the Detroit Tigers’ farm system for Monday, July 15, 2019.

Toledo Mud Hens 9, Durham Bulls 1 (box)

The Hens offense jumped all over the Bulls on Monday, and Beau Burrows threw a solid game as they cruised to victory. The Hens scored three in the first, and came back for three more in the second inning courtesy of a three-run shot from Jacob Robson. Robson has really heated up in June and July after a brutal start to the season. Burrows allowed a solo shot in the second, but was otherwise strong, blanking the Bulls for the rest of a five-inning, two-hit outing. JaCoby Jones singled and scored two runs in the first game of his rehab assignment. Austin Adams, Bryan Garcia, and John Schreiber blanked the Bulls for four innings of relief work to wrap this one up.

Robson: 2-5, HR, 2B, 2 R, 3 RBI, 3 SO

Lugo: 2-4, 2B, R, 2 RBI

Rogers: 2-3, R

Burrows (W, 1-3): 5.0 IP, ER, 2 H, 2 BB, 4 SO

Coming Up Next: Tim Adleman (3-3, 2.94 ERA) is scheduled to take on the Bulls on Tuesday at 12:05pm ET.

Erie SeaWolves 5, Akron RubberDucks 4 (box)

The SeaWolves hit three home runs to overcome a rocky start by Alex Faedo, and eventually walked off the RubberDucks on Monday night. Faedo allowed four runs in five innings, striking out nine on the night. Cam Gibson, Frank Schwindel, and Derek Hill each launched home runs to overcome the deficit and send things to the ninth inning tied up. Hill’s was his 11th on the year. In the bottom of the frame, Kody Eaves led off with a single, while a double from Chace Numata moved Eaves to third. The table thus set, Derek Hill slapped a single through the left side to walk off the Ducks.

Hill: 2-5, HR, R, 2 RBI, SO

Azocar: 1-3, BB, SO

Faedo: 5.0 IP, 4 ER, 6 H, BB, 9 SO

Coming Up Next: The Tigers did a nice job getting Matt Manning (6-4, 2.77 ERA) two weeks off other than his brief MLB Futures Game appearance. He kicks off his second half with an interesting challenge as he takes on oft-injured Indians pitcher, Danny Salazar (0-1, 3.38 ERA) on Tuesday night in Erie.

Lakeland Flying Tigers (idle)

The Flying Tigers head to Clearwater to take on the Dunedin Blue Jays on Tuesday for a back-to-back doubleheader starting at 5:00pm ET.

Kane County Cougars 9, West Michigan Whitecaps 1 (box)

Brad Bass threw a solid game, but the offense was quiet and the bullpen melted down in the late innings on Monday. Bass went 5 23 innings, allowing two runs on eight hits with six strikeouts. Andre Lipcius posted another two hit game, as did Jack Kenley, but otherwise the lineup was quiet. Kenley scored the ‘Caps only run on a fifth inning single from Christopher Proctor. Drew Crosby took a beating in the seventh inning, allowing five runs, four earned, to put this one out of reach.

Lipcius: 2-5, 2 SO

Kenley:2-4, R, 2 SO

Bass (L, 1-2): 5.2 IP, 2 ER, 8 H, 2 BB, 6 SO

Coming Up Next: The Whitecaps get the day off on Tuesday.

Connecticut Tigers 14, Tri-City ValleyCats 10 (box)

Marco Jimenez gave up three runs right out of the gate and you had to wonder if this wouldn’t be another long night for the Tigers’ pitching staff. As it turned out, it was a rough go, but Riley Greene and the offense outdid the ValleyCats, pummeling them into submission. The Tigers came right back in the bottom of the second. With a run in, and the bases loaded, Riley Greene drilled a two-RBI single and Kona Quiggle and Jordan Verdon followed with RBI hits of their own as the Tigers put seven runs on the board. Jimenez came out and quickly allowed the Cats to close the gap with a three-run shot to make it 7-6. The Tigers came right back, with a two-run laser of a home run to right-centerfield from Greene as the big blow of the frame as the Tigers scored five more runs and then held on through some rocky relief outings to win on Monday.

Greene: 3-6, HR, 2B, 2 R, 4 RBI, 2 SO, SB

King: 3-6, 3B, 2 R, RBI

Kreidler: 2-3, 2 R, RBI, 3 BB, SB

M. Jimenez: 2.2 IP, 6 ER, 4 H, 2 BB

Coming Up Next: The Tigers get two days off before action resumes on Thursday.
