Charlie Furbush turned in a strong start and the Toledo offense showed up big time as the Hens cruised to a 9-2 victory. Furbush earned the win, allowing a pair of runs in six innings of work with five strikeouts. Daniel Schlereth, Scot Drucker and Jay Sborz each tossed a scoreless inning of relief to close the game out. At the plate, Andy Dirks ripped a pair of doubles and drove in two runs, while Justin Henry added two hits including a triple, two runs scored and three RBI. Max St. Pierre also went 2-for-4 with two runs scored, a double and an RBI.

Erie picked up an 8-4 win over Reading on Saturday. Brayan Villarreal got the start and a no decision, allowing three runs in just 3 1/3 innings before exiting. Villarreal battled his control, with three walks to go with two wild pitches. Jose Ortega got the win in relief, tossing 2 2/3 innings of one-hit baseball. Kody Kaiser had a monster game at the plate, going 4-for-5 and falling a triple short of the cycle, and driving in four runs total. Cale Iorg and Bryan Pounds also each added solo home runs.

The Flying Tigers picked up a 1-0 shutout win over Charlotte, thanks to a great start from Adam Wilk. Wilk went eight innings, scattering six hits while walking none and striking out five as he picked up his ninth win of the season. Jay Voss closed things out to earn his second save. Lakeland got their lone run to score via a squeeze bunt by Brent Wyatt that scored Gustavo Nunez from third base in the eighth inning.

It took 11 innings, but the Whitecaps were able to pull out a 6-5 win over Dayton on Saturday. Luis Sanz brought home Jeff Rowland on a sacrifice fly in the 11th to score the winning run. Antonio Cruz got the win in relief for pitching the final two innings. Luis Angel Sanz got the start, giving up three runs in 5 2/3 innings of work. Jamie Johnson went 2-for-6 with a solo home run for the club, while Carlos Guillen also added a pair of hits.

While the Whitecaps were able to pick up a one run victory in 11 innings, Connecticut saw the opposite happen as they fell 3-2 in 11 innings. Tyler Clark took the loss, giving up two runs in his three-plus innings of work, allowing the tying run to score in the ninth and then the winning run in the 11th. A great start from Brennan Smith was wasted, as Smith allowed just one run on eight hits over seven innings of work. Lee Smith had two hits and an RBI, while Ryan Soares added two hits including a double and a run scored.

In keeping with the extra inning theme, the DSL Tigers fell to the DSL Dodgers in 15 innings on Saturday. The Tigers forced extras in the ninth with a three run showing, then twice more took the lead, in the 11th and the 15th, only to see the Dodgers re-tie it in the 11th, and then eventually win it with two runs in the 15th. Walter Lachapel took the loss for allowing the tying and winning runs on base, while Yinny Calderon got the blown save for allowing them to cross the plate. Luis Hidalgo got the start, giving up two runs in 5 1/3 innings. Carlos De Los Santos and Alwin Delgado combined for five hits, three walks and four RBI from the top of the order.

The VSL Tigers wrapped up their 2010 campaign, falling to the VSL Phillies 6-0. Yonny Mosquera got the start and took the loss, giving up five runs (four earned) in 4 2/3 innings of work. Luis Cortez managed the club's only hit in the loss.
