May 11th Games
AAA Toledo Mud Hens - Lehigh Valley 8, Toledo 1
15-19, 3rd in West Division
While most of the Toledo rotation has been shining as of late, Thad Weber can't claim the same, as he got roughed up on Wednesday in Toledo's 8-1 loss to Lehigh Valley. Weber took the loss, giving up five runs on six hits in four innings of work. He also walked four and struck out five. Chris Oxspring also allowed three more runs, and while Fu-Te Ni combined to toss 3 1/3 innings of shutout no-hit relief, the Toledo offense wasn't able to mount a comeback. They did manage 13 hits, but went just 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position and Argenis Diaz grounded into a pair of double plays. Scott Thorman provided the lone run via a solo homer, while Ben Guez and Timo Perez each had two hits including a double.
AA Erie Seawolves - Akron 4, Erie 1
15-16, t-3rd in Western Division
The SeaWolves winning streak came to a close on Wednesday as Erie fell to Akron 4-1. Casey Crosby got the start and took the loss, allowing just two runs in six innings but struggling with his control, walking six batters while striking out just five. He did allow only three hits though. Rob Waite and Zach Simons each allowed a run in relief to wrap up the runs allowed. Meanwhile Erie's offense was silent, managing just three hits, with Jamie Johnson scoring the team's only run. Brandon Douglas did reach base three times with two walks and a single.
A+ Lakeland Flying Tigers – St. Lucie 6, Lakeland 0
16-17, t-3rd in North Division
The Flying Tigers were shut out on Wednesday, falling to St. Lucie 6-0. Cole Nelson got the start and took the loss, giving up three runs (two earned) in 6 1/3 innings of work. He also walked four and struck out four. Jordan Pratt allowed the other three runs to cross the plate. Lakeland's offense managed just four hits, the lone extra base hit coming as a double from Michael Rockett.
A West Michigan Whitecaps - South Bend 6, West Michigan 1
14-19, 7th in Eastern division
West Michigan wrapped things up on the farm with a loss as well, falling to South Bend 6-1, just like in game one of the doubleheader on Tuesday. Josue Carreno got the start and took the loss, giving up five runs in six innings of work. Michael Torrealba gave up a run in three innings of work to complete the scoring. The 'Caps scattered eight hits but went just 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position, getting their lone run via a James Robbins sacrifice fly that scored Luis Castillo, who led the inning off with a double. Steven Moya also went 2-for-4 with a double in his first game with the Whitecaps.
