The Toledo pitching is firing on all cylinders, but the Mud Hens bats can't seem to pick it up as well. On Sunday the Hens lost to Indianapolis again, this time in a 2-1 battle in ten innings. Brooks Brown gave the club seven solid innings as the starter, allowing one run on five hits with four strikeouts. Scot Drucker and Ryan Perry each pitched a no-hit inning of relief to force extras, but in the tenth, Ron Chiavacci gave up the go-ahead run. The Toledo offense managed just two hits, both of which came in the fifth inning when Brent Dlugach scored the team's only run on an RBI groundout from Mike Hessman.

The SeaWolves dropped both games of their doubleheader with Harrisburg on Sunday. The first game went ten innings, with Jay Sborz giving up a solo walk-off home run. Thad Weber struggled as the starter, giving up three runs on seven hits in three innings before exiting. Erie held the lead going into the sixth, but Brett Jensen gave up a run to tie the game up at four. Danny Worth went 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored, while Alex Avila had two hits and drove in two. Josh Rainwater took the loss in the second game, giving up just one run on three hits in five innings. The 'Wolves however couldn't get Rainwater any run support, as the club managed just three singles.

The Flying Tigers wrapped up their four game set with Sarasota with a 5-3 loss on Sunday. Matt Hoffman took the loss, giving up all five Sarasota runs in 6 2/3 innings. Chris Carlson got Lakeland out to an early 2-0 lead with a two-run blast in the first, but Sarasota quickly came back with the three runs in the bottom half of the inning. Justin Henry drove in the club's other run.

Casey Crosby was the star of the farm on Sunday as he led the Whitecaps to an 8-0 shutout victory. Crosby tossed five innings of no-hit baseball, walking one and striking out six. Rob Waite and Nick Cassavechia pitched the final four innings to preserve the shutout. Gustavo Nunez went 3-for-3 from the top of the order, scoring twice and driving in two runs. Bryan Pounds also had a pair of doubles, a pair of runs and an RBI. And Billy Nowlin chipped in with three hits and a run driven in.

Oneonta fell behind early, but came back strong to cruise to a 9-3 win over Lowell. Luis Angel Sanz got a no decision as the starter, giving up three runs in four innings. He also struck out five. Cory Hamilton got his second win of young season (in only two appearances), tossing three innings of shutout, one-hit ball. He struck out five as well. Rawley Bishop and Alexis Espinoza each drove in a pair of runs for the club, while Bish, Wade Gaynor, and Jimmy Gulliver each scored twice. Michael Rockett also added a solo home run.

Toledo dropped their series opener with Indianapolis 4-2 on Saturday night. Ruddy Lugo took the loss, giving up all four runs in six innings of work. Toledo managed eight hits, but could only get two runs across the plate, both via a Mike Hessman double in the second inning. Jeff Larish and Brent Clevlen each had two hits in the losing effort.

Erie's pitching was hammered as they fell to Harrisburg 10-5. Jonah Nickerson had one of his rougher outings, giving up seven runs (six earned) in six innings of work. Ramon Garcia also struggled in relief, allowing three more runs to cross the plate in the final two innings. Brennan Boesch blasted a two-run homer for the 'Wolves, with the recently called up Ronnie Bourquin also adding a pair of hits.

Maurico Robles' second Florida State League start wasn't outstanding, but he still picked up his first victory with the Flying Tigers thanks to some impressive run support in a 12-5 victory. Robles allowed four runs on six hits in six innings of work - he also struck out ten. One shocking stat; Robbie Weinhardt let an earned run cross the plate, just his third one allowed in more than 20 appearances. Devin Thomas and Chris White each belted homers for the club, while Justin Henry went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and four runs driven in. Adrian Casanova also chipped in with two hits and three runs.

Great Lakes outlasted the Whitecaps on Saturday in 11 innings as they won 5-4. Luke Putkonen got a no-decision as the starter, yielding three runs (two earned) in 5 1/3 innings of work. It'd be Tyler Stohr that would take the loss, giving up the go-ahead runs in the top of the 11th inning. The Whitecaps made a comeback attempt, getting a run home and the tying run in scoring position, but Bryan Pounds grounded out to end the game. Brandon Douglas and Billy Nowlin each had two hits in the losing cause.

After a strong start to the year, the O-Tigers dropped both games of a doubleheader with Vermont on Saturday. In the first game, the O-Tigers were shut out 3-0. Gary Perinar took the loss, giving up all three runs in 4 2/3 innings of work. Perinar also battled his control a bit, handing out four free passes. Alexis Espinoza and Michael Rockett each had a double for the team, but couldn't get any runs to cross the plate. The second game was a closer battle, but Oneonta still came up short, 2-1. Mike LaLuna took the loss, giving up both Vermont runs in his four innings of work. LaLuna did strike out six however. Jamie Johnson and Rockett each had two hits from the top of the order, with Johnson scoring the club's only run.

The DSL Tigers got a good win over the DSL Padres 8-3 on Saturday. Emmanuel Del Orbe pitched well, but didn't get the win as he didn't make it the requisite five innings. Del Orbe gave up a run in four innings of work. Vladimir Ortiz earned the win in relief, tossing three shutout innings. Samuel Ortiz drove the offense from the leadoff slot, scoring twice and driving in a pair of runs. Ivan Espinoza also had three RBI for the club, and Juaner Aguasvivas added two hits and two runs scored.

Leonel Vasquez took the loss as the VSL Tigers were shut out 5-0 by the VSL Mets. Vasquez gave up two runs (one earned) in 4 2/3 innings, but with no offensive support, was still doomed to the loss column. The offense managed just two hits, singles from Jose Soledad and Gabriel Purroy.

Durham took a 5-3 victory over Toledo on Friday night in a 15-inning marathon game. Luke French was solid yet again as the starter, giving up two runs on five hits in seven innings, plus eight strikeouts. French finished up the seventh down 2-0, but a Brent Dlugach homer in the bottom half knotted the game at two and forced extras. In the tenth, Durham got a run, but Toledo matched them and should have gotten more, but couldn't get a run home with the bases loaded and only one out. Durham eventually got two runs in the 15th off Matt Rusch, who took the loss. Clete Thomas had two hits and an RBI in the loss.

Erie dropped a one run game to Harrisburg, falling 3-2. Jon Kibler took the loss but turned in another quality start, scattering eight hits in 6 1/3 innings, allowing three runs, though just one earned. Alex Avila drove in both of Erie's runs, including via a solo shot in the sixth inning, but no one else could get much going at the plate.

A day after taking a rough one-run loss, the Flying Tigers left nothing up to chance, as they crushed Sarasota 9-0. Andrew Hess picked up the win, tossing seven shutout innings, allowing six hits. Jared Gayhart tossed two perfect innings of relief to secure the shutout. Audy Ciriaco and Jeramy Laster each belted solo home runs, with Ciriaco having a monster night, going 3-for-4 with four RBI total. Devin Thomas also added two hits, two runs and an RBI.

A day after shutting out Great Lakes to get the second half of the season started, West Michigan picked up a 4-1 win over Great Lakes. Mark Sorensen tossed eight impressive innings en route to the win, allowing one run with four strikeouts. Tyler Conn picked up the save for pitching the ninth. At the plate, Brent Wyatt and Ben Guez were responsible for the run production, each driving in two runs.

The DSL Tigers split a doubleheader with the DSL Orioles on Friday, dropping the first game 2-1 but putting up eight runs in the second. Yadiel Polanco took the loss in the first game, giving up two runs in six innings of work. He didn't get much run support though, as the offense managed just three singles, with Samir Rijo driving in the lone run. In the second game, it took a bit of time, but the offense put up a four-spot in the third inning, and scored every inning from then on to cap the 8-2 win. Ramon Franco got the start but a no-decision as he only went four innings, yielding just one unearned run. Billis Andujar got the win in relief, for pitching a perfect 1 1/3 innings. Rijo added two more RBI in the second game, while the Tigers' offense was helped out by six Orioles' errors.

The VSL Tigers got hit hard once again as they fell 9-2. Fernando Celis took the brunt of the scoring this time, giving up seven runs (four earned) on six hits in four innings of relief work. Jose Tablante pitched two innings to start before exiting. At the plate Gabriel Purroy had two hits and an RBI for the club.

Scot Drucker turned in a solid start and the Mud Hens scored just enough runs this time to help Toledo to a 4-2 win. Drucker gave up a run on three hits in 5 1/3 innings of work as he improved to 5-2 for the year. Casey Fien pitched the final 2 1/3 innings of work without allowing a hit to pick up his sixth save. Clete Thomas went 3-for-4 including two doubles and drove in a run, while Dane Sardinha drove in two more runs.

The SeaWolves dropped their second straight to Altoona in an 8-6 defeat. Cody Satterwhite took the brunt of the abuse from Altoona, giving up five runs while recording just two outs in relief.

The Flying Tigers were shut out and took the loss despite an excellent showing from L.J. Gagnier, as Sarasota triumphed 1-0. Gagnier went the distance, allowing one run on five hits in eight innings of work. He also struck out 13 in what would likely be characterized as his best outing of the year. Unfortunately the offense managed just four hits, only one for extra bases - a double from Joe Tucker.

While the Flying Tigers were shut out on Thursday, the Whitecaps did a little shutting out of their own as they set down Great Lakes 4-0. Brayan Villareal and Victor Larez combo'd up to record the shut out. Villareal got the start, giving up four hits in 4 1/3 innings, and striking out five. Larez though got the win, going the final 4 2/3 innings, giving up one hit and striking out four. Ben Guez had two hits including a double and an RBI for the club, while Joe Bowen also drove in a run.

After a series victory over Lowell, Oneonta picked up a 5-2 win over Vermont on Thursday. Jeff Gerbe didn't show quite as well in his second start for the O-Tigers, giving up a run in 2 2/3 innings as he battled baserunners, allowing three hits and walking four. Michael Torrealba got the win in relief, tossing 2 1/3 innings of no-hit baseball. Kenny Faulk pitched the final two innings for his first save. Alexis Espinoza and Rawley Bishop each ripped RBI triples in the game, and each scored a run, while Matt Mansilla had a pair of doubles, and Wade Gaynor had two hits and scored twice.

The GCL Tigers lost a close one to the GCL Yankees on Thursday, falling 3-2. Rayni Guichardo got the loss but turned in a solid start, giving up two runs on three hits in five innings of work. The GCL Tigers made a comeback attempt in the top of the ninth when down 3-1, but with the bases loaded and only one out, Keith Hernandez grounded into a double play to end the threat and the game. Hernan Perez had two hits and scored twice for the team, with Francisco Martinez and Leo Grullon each driving in a run.

In the theme of the night, the DSL Tigers fell in a one-run defeat to the DSL Cubs1, 7-6. Vladimir Ortiz got the loss in relief, giving up the winning runs in the top of the ninth. Darlin Duran was hampered by a pair of costly errors, as he allowed five runs but just two earned in six innings of work. Duran also struck out eight. The DSL Tigers also had a comeback attempt brewing, but with the tying run on third and the go-ahead run on first, Ivan Espinoza grounded out to end the game. Javier Azcona had three hits, falling a home run short of the cycle, while Samir Rijo added a solo home run.

The VSL Mariners topped the VSL Tigers on Thursday 9-5. Yorfrank Lopez took the loss, giving up eight runs (though just three earned) in 4 1/3 innings of work. The VSL Tigers defense had another rough game, committing five errors in the game. Juan Espinoza did toss 3 2/3 innings of shutout relief. Alexander Moreno had two hits and a two run homer for the club, while Gabriel Purroy and Eugenio Suarez added two hits apiece.

Despite a strong start from Chris Lambert, the Mud Hens couldn't generate much offense as they fell 4-2 to Durham. Lambert gave up two runs on five hits in seven innings, including ten strikeouts. Lambert though didn't take the loss; that was Matt Rusch who gave up a run in each the eighth and ninth innings, to give Durham the lead and the win. Scott Sizemore had a pair of hits and a run scored for the club, with Jeff Larish adding a hit and an RBI.

On the same day they lost their prized first baseman to the disabled list, Erie got doubled up by Altoona 8-4. Luis Marte got the loss but didn't have a bad start, giving up four runs (just two earned) in seven innings of work, with five strikeouts.

Scott Green took over, and pitched a scoreless inning in the seventh, but gave up the winning run in the eighth for the loss. Jeramy Laster and Josh Workman each had two hits and a run scored. In the second game, a comfortable lead evaporated in the seventh inning as Brett Jacobson struggled, but Brendan Wise was able to get the final out to hold the lead and get the save. Trevor Linder gave up a run in three innings as the starter, while Jacobson had a rough outing, giving up three earned runs in 2/3 of an inning of work. Devin Thomas went 3-for-3 with a pair of RBI at the plate, with Audy Ciriaco adding two hits and an RBI.

Oneonta picked up a 3-0 shutout win over Lowell on Wednesday.

It took 13 innings, but Toledo was able to outlast Durham and pick an 11-10 win as Jeff Larish ripped a walk-off RBI double that scored Clete Thomas.

Ron Chiavacci struggled in relief, giving up four more runs in just 1 1/3 innings. Toledo still headed into the ninth with a 10-9 lead, but Fu-Te Ni gave up a run to Durham to force extras. Larish went 5-for-6 for the game, including a pair of doubles and three RBI. Thomas also reached base six times, with four hits and two walks. Brent Dlugach drove in four runs as well.

A day after dropping both games of a doubleheader, Lakeland came back with a come-from-behind win over Daytona, 2-1.

Robbie Weinhardt would get the win in relief, pitching four shutout innings, allowing just three hits and striking out three. And a day after struggling Brendan Wise pitched a perfect ninth for his first save. At the plate, Josh Workman doubled home Audy Ciriaco in the sixth to get the club on the board, and Justin Henry scored the go-ahead run via a single, stolen base and a throwing error.

The GCL Tigers got their season kicked off in a big way with a 9-8 victory over the GCL Braves.

Adolfo Reina had two hits and two runs including a solo blast for the Tigers, with Hernan Perez also driving in two runs and Brett Anderson having two hits and an RBI.

The DSL Tigers walk-off victory wasn't quite as dramatic as Ryan Raburn's pinch-hit walk-off home run, but it got the job done as they picked up a 6-5 win. Ariel Median got a no decision as the starter, giving up four unearned runs in four innings of work. Jose Valdez got the win for being the pitcher of record when the DSL Tigers got the winning run by Robinson Figueroa who scred from third on a wild pitch. Raynolds Guzman went 2-for-4 with an RBI.

The VSL Tigers got hammered by the VSL Cardinals on Tuesday, falling 13-2. Gino Aguirre wasn't able to make it out of the first inning, giving up five runs in 2/3 innings of work.
