Mike Lowell got to the Toledo pitching staff early and often as the Hens fell to Pawtucket 10-6. Charlie Furbush took the loss, giving up seven runs in four innings of work. Josh Rainwater tossed three perfect innings of relief to give Toledo a chance to get back in the game, but then Fu-Te Ni gave up three more runs to put it out of reach. Justin Henry reached base four times for the club, going 3-for-4 with a walk while scoring twice. Ben Guez ripped a two run homer for the club, while Ryan Strieby added a double and two RBI.
Cale Iorg was responsible for the heroics in Erie on Tuesday, belting a walk-off two-run home run in the bottom of the 13th to give Erie a 2-0 win over Altoona. Cory Hamilton got the win for tossing one scoreless inning of relief, but Brayan Villarreal was the story on the mound, going 7 2/3 innings while scattering just four hits and striking out eight. Iorg finished the day 3-for-6 with the homer to left, which came with one out and Alden Carrithers standing on second. Carrithers also went 3-for-6.
The Flying Tigers fell to Bradenton on Tuesday, 3-1. Mark Sorensen was strong as the starter but would take a no decision, giving up a run on five hits over 6 1/3 innings of work. He also struck out seven. Jay Voss though struggled in relief, allowing the go-ahead runs to score in his inning of work. Francisco Martinez drove in Bryan Holaday for the club's only run, while Gustavo Nunez added two hits.
The GCL Tigers picked up a 6-4 win over the GCL Braves. Kyle Ryan got the win, his first as a GCL Tiger, giving up two runs in five innings. Alex Burgos, Cole Nelson and Tim Mowry combined to work three innings of middle relief (with Nelson allowing two runs), before Bruce Rondon came on to pick up his ninth save, striking out two in a hitless ninth. Alexander Moreno went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI, while Edwin Gomez added a triple, two RBI and a run scored. Dixon Machado also chipped in with three hits and a run scored.
The VSL Tigers piled on the VSL Cardinals in a 15-3 win on Tuesday. Every member of the lineup got at least one hit for the club, while all but two drove in a run, and they put up all those runs without any home runs. Jesus Ustariz shined the most at the plate, going 3-for-6 with two doubles, two runs scored and four RBI. Luis Cortez and Erick Soto combined for three doubles and six runs scored from the top two spots in the order. Raul Leiva also added three RBI. Yonny Mosquera got the win, giving up a run in five innings of work.
