May 7th Games
AAA Toledo Mud Hens - Charlotte 1, Toledo 0
14-16, 3rd in West Division
Typically when you allow just one hit for an entire game, the results go in your favor. Unfortunately, that didn't happen for the Toledo Mud Hens on Saturday, as Charlotte was able to get a run across the plate via that lone hit, and that was all they needed. Charlie Furbush got the start and took the loss, giving up the lone run on one hit in eight innings of work. He also walked two and struck out eight. Lester Oliveros tossed a perfect ninth, but Toledo couldn't get a run across the plate. The Hens managed five hits, and did get a hit with a runner in scoring position, but couldn't get a run across, including a threat in the bottom of the fourth that saw the bases loaded. Scott Thorman had three hits in the loss, while Will Rhymes added a double.
AA Erie Seawolves - Erie 10, Bowie 2
12-15, 6th in Western Division
After a rough game Friday night, the SeaWolves rebounded in a big way on a Saturday night, cruising to a 10-2 victory. L.J. Gagnier got the win in a strong outing, giving up a run on five hits in seven innings of work. Francisco Martinez though was the story at the plate, ripping a triple and a home run, driving in three runs and scoring three himself. Rawley Bishop added three hits including a double and scored twice. Audy Ciriaco also went 3-for-4 with a run and an RBI, while Ben Guez chipped in with a solo home run.
A+ Lakeland Flying Tigers – Tampa 7, Lakeland 1
14-16, t-3rd in North Division
The Flying Tigers fell to the Yankees in Tampa on Saturday, 7-1. Victor Larez got the start but was chased early, giving up six runs on ten hits in 3 2/3 innings as he took the loss. Zach Samuels, Michael Morrison and Jordan Pratt combined to allow just one run the rest of the way, but the Lakeland offense managed just one run on four hits. Wade Gaynor went 2-for-4 with a double and drove in the team's only run.
A West Michigan Whitecaps - West Michigan 6, Dayton 4
11-17, t-7th in Eastern division
