The Mud Hens limped into the All-Star break, wrapping up the first half of the season with a 6-4 loss to Indianapolis. Alfredo Figaro got the start and a no-decision, giving up a run on three hits in two innings of work. An hour long rain delay ended Figaro's day early. Gilbert De La Vara took the loss, giving up five runs on eight hits in three innings of relief. Brendan Wise and Casey Fien combined to toss four shutout innings and keep Indianapolis off the board the rest but Toledo could get no closer than within two runs. Will Rhymes raised his average up to an even .300 with a 3-for-5 game, falling a double short of the cycle. Jeff Larish also added two hits and two RBI for the club.
With Audy Ciriaco passing the SeaWolves, Erie picked up a 5-1 win over Akron on Sunday. Ciriaco was the clear star, going 4-for-4, scoring twice and driving in two more runs while ripping a pair of triples. Unfortunately he couldn't help pick up a win for Charlie Furbush who was outstanding as the starter. Furbush allowed a run on four hits with nine strikeouts. Zach Simons would pick up the win in relief, tossing a perfect 1 2/3 innings.
The Flying Tigers picked up an impressive 2-1 victory over Dunedin, led by a strong start from Jon Kibler. Kibler allowed a run on five hits in 6 2/3 innings of work as he picked up his second win for the Flying Tigers. Jared Gayhart recorded the final four outs to pick up his second save of the year. Ben Guez ripped a solo home run to provide one of Lakeland's runs, while Daniel Fields helped provide the other, ripping a pair of doubles which scored Brian Holaday.
The Whitecaps fell to Lake County 4-1. Trevor Feeney continued his run in earning a decision in virtually every start he makes, taking the loss as he fell to 7-9. Feeney allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits in seven innings of work. The Whitecaps managed just five hits at the plate, with the club's lone run coming via a solo home run in the ninth inning to prevent another shutout from Avisail Garcia.
The C-Tigers fell to Williamsport on Sunday, 8-2. Patrick Cooper took the loss, giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits in five innings of work. Logan Hoch came on in relief but wasn't able to stop the bleeding, as Williamsport got three more runs in Hoch's two innings of work. James Robbins and Matt Perry each drove in a run, while P.J. Polk reached base four times with three hits and a walk, as well as a run scored.
The DSL Tigers dropped a close battle with the DSL Blue Jays, falling 2-1. Jorge Medina was very good as the starter, tossing five shutout innings, allowing just two hits while striking out eight. Darlin Duran took the loss in relief, allowing both runs to score in his two innings of work. Javier Romero scored the team's only run, while Raynolds Guzman added two hits, including a double.
