Toledo picked up a 3-2 win in ten innings on Thursday evening, with Max Leon ripping a single to score Justin Henry for the walk-off run. Henry led off the inning with a double to get himself into scoring position. Casey Fien got the win for pitching a scoreless tenth. Andy Oliver got the start, giving up two runs over seven innings of work, including two walks and seven strikeouts. At the plate, Scott Sizemore went 2-for-5 with a run and a double.
The SeaWolves got 3 2/3 innings of shutout baseball from their bullpen as they rolled to a 5-3 win over Harrisburg. Duane Below got the win, just his fifth of the season, giving up three runs over 5 1/3 innings of work. He also struck out five. From there, the bullpen took over, with Rob Waite, Cory Hamilton and Lester Oliveros not allowing a hit, let alone a run. Oliveros earned his eighth save. At the plate, Cale Iorg ripped a three run homer, while Rawley Bishop added three hits for the club. Billy Nowlin also had an RBI double and Alden Carrithers managed two hits and scored once.
The Flying Tigers fell to Brevard County 5-2, who scored plenty early and put Lakeland in a hole they couldn't climb out of. Adam Wilk took the loss while being victimized by errors, giving up five runs in five innings, but just one of the runs was earned. He also struck out six. At the plate, Jordan Lennerton added a double, a run and an RBI.
The Whitecaps pulled out a 6-5 win over Fort Wayne on Thursday as they continue their hot play in the battle for a playoff spot. Zach Samuels got the win in relief, tossing three shutout innings for the club. Patrick Cooper got the start, allowing five runs on five hits in five innings. Tony Plagman ripped the go-ahead and game winning run in the seventh when he belted a solo home run, his fifth of the year. Hernan Perez also drove in a pair of runs, while Jeff Rowland and Wade Gaynor each added two hits and an RBI.
The CT-Tigers were knocked out of their second place perch where they had spent much of the season on Thursday, falling to Tri-City 3-2. Brennan Smith took the loss but pitched fairly well, giving up three runs in 5 2/3 innings. Miguel Mejia didn't allow a hit over the final 3 1/3 innings, but Connecticut couldn't make a comeback. Brett Anderson had a pair of doubles and an RBI for the club, while Alexander Nunez added three hits, swiped a base and scored a run.
The GCL Tigers split their doubleheader with the GCL Braves on Thursday, falling in the first game 3-0 but taking the second game 8-4. Wilsen Palacios took the loss in the first game, despite turning in a quality start and going the distance. He pitched all six innings, allowing three runs while striking out six. The offense scattered just three singles. But they came alive in the second game with eight runs, with two hit, one RBI games from five different players; Kyle Peter, Edwin Gomez, Patrick Leyland, Alexander Moreno and Byron Aird. Cole Nelson gave up a run in four innings with eight strikeouts as the starter, while Fernando Celis got the win in relief.
The DSL Tigers fell to the DSL Braves 11-6. Emmanuel Del Orbe got the start, giving up two runs (one earned) in three innings of work. Yinni Calderon took the loss, giving up two unearned runs in his three innings of work. Most of the damage came late in the game, with Cesar Burgos and Alvin Acosta combining to allow seven more runs. Raynolds Guzman had three hits including a double and two RBI. Javier Romero also added two hits including a triple and an RBI.
