Armando Galarraga continued his hot start to the 2010 campaign, while Casper Wells got his offense going in Toledo's 4-1 win over Louisville. Galarraga had a no-hitter going again this time, making it through 5 1/3 innings before allowing his first hit as he improved to 2-1 for the year. He yielded just three hits, walked none, and struck out six. Jay Sborz pitched a perfect ninth with a pair of strikeouts for his fifth save. Wells belted a pair of home runs to pace the offense, with three hits and three RBI total. Jeff Frazier also added a solo shot.

After starting the season with eight straight losses, the SeaWolves are rolling now, as they picked up their fourth straight win, a 7-2 victory over Bowie. L.J. Gagnier picked up his first win, turning in 7 2/3 strong innings, while allowing two runs with seven strikeouts. Brendan Wise retired the final four batters to pick up the save. Andy Dirks and Wilkin Ramirez each went 2-for-4 with an RBI, while Deik Scram drove in a pair. And Audy Ciriaco, in his Erie debut, went 2-for-4 with a walk.

The Flying Tigers returned to action Tuesday after a rainout and picked up a 5-3 win over Brevard County. Mark Sorensen got the win, giving up two runs in six innings of work. Tyler Conn, Erik Crichton and Lester Oliveros each tossed an inning of relief to secure the win. Kody Kaiser had a strong day from the top of the order with three hits including a pair of doubles, while new addition Daniel Fields drove in three runs with a bases clearing triple in the first.

The Whitecaps were shut out on Tuesday by Dayton, falling 3-0. Victor Larez made an emergency start for the club after a late scratch for Jacob Turner and did well, allowing just one run in 5 2/3 innings. But without any support at the plate, he still took the loss. The team scattered just three singles, one each from Jamie Johnson, Wade Gaynor and Jordan Lennerton.
