AA Erie Seawolves - Erie 9, Binghamton 3
11-13, 5th in Western Division
Erie picked up a very nice win on Wednesday, getting out in front of Binghamton midway through the game, and then pouring it on late to run away and win comfortably. Jacob Turner got the start and took a no decision, giving up three runs on five hits in five innings of work. He also walked three and struck out two. The win went to Ramon Garcia, who tossed a shutout inning of relief and was the last on the mound when the 'Wolves offense put up their five run seventh. Lester Oliveros however had the most impressive performance of the night, tossing two scoreless innings, and striking out every out he got without a walk and just one hit. At the plate, Jamie Johnson played the usual spark plug role, going 4-for-5 with a pair of runs scored. Ben Guez ripped a triple with the bases loaded to plate three runs, while Bryan Holaday added a solo homer and drove in two. Brandon Douglas also chipped in with two hits, two runs and two RBI.
A+ Lakeland Flying Tigers – Clearwater 3, Lakeland 2 (14)
13-14, 3rd in North Division
The Flying Tigers fell a game back below .500 on Wednesday as they fell to Clearwater 3-2 in 14 innings. Lakeland jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead, but that lead was quickly wiped away by the third inning, and from that point forward, for ten innings, neither team could get a run across the plate. Clearwater finally broke the drought in the 14th by scoring a run, handing the loss to Matt Little, as the Flying Tigers went down quietly in the bottom half. Jay Voss got the start, giving up two runs on six hits in four innings of work. Zach Samuels and Jordan Pratt each had noteworthy relief outings, with both pitchers tossing three shutout innings. Wade Gaynor supplied all of the run support via a two run blast. Gustavo Nunez also couldn't be kept off the bases, going 5-for-6 in the marathon game.
