Ryan Ketchner got the start, giving up six runs in 4 1/3 innings, with Brendan Wise earning the win in relief, tossing 1 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball.
A seventh inning surge from Akron overcame Erie's two run lead and resulted in a 6-5 loss for the 'Wolves. Charlie Furbush got the start, giving up five runs on ten hits in six innings of work. But it was Zach Simons who would take the loss for allowing the go-ahead run in the seventh. Cesar Nicolas had a big game, going 3-for-4 with two runs scored, including a two run homer. Andy Dirks and Cale Iorg also each added two hits.

Daniel Fields had a pair of hits and drove in three runs, while Francisco Martinez added a solo home run. Billy Nowlin also reached base four times, all walks.
Giovanni Soto made his return to the mound but struggled a bit in the Whitecaps 7-3 loss. Soto gave up four runs (three earned) in 3 1/3 innings of work before exiting. Jordan Pratt came on in relief and walked as many as outs he recorded (four) before handing the ball over to Richard Zumaya, who gave up three more runs. Wade Gaynor and Hernan Perez each drove in a run for the club.
The C-Tigers were sloppy and in turn hammered as they fell to Hudson Valley 10-2 on Saturday. Rayni Guichardo took the loss, allowing five runs (three earned) in two innings of work before handing things over to the bullpen.

The GCL Tigers fell to the GCL Yankees 3-2 in 11 innings on Saturday. Jeff Ferrell got the start for the club, allowing a run on five hits in six innings.
