April 28th Games


AAA Toledo Mud Hens
14-8, 1st in West Division

Team R H E
Gwinnett 8 8 1
Toledo 3 7 2

Shawn Teufel gave up six runs (four earned) over 4 1/3 innings to record the loss. Rawley Bishop was the only Mud Hen to have multiple hits, going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. Audy Ciriaco went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored. Brooks Brown gave up two runs (one earned) over 2 2/3 innings of relief.

AA Erie Seawolves
9-11, 4th in Eastern Division

Team R H E
Binghamtom 2 4 2
Erie 3 5 0

James Avery gave up one earned run over 6 2/3 innings to move to 3-1 on the season. Rob Brantly hit a two-RBI double as part of a three-run fifth for the SeaWolves, which proved to be enough for the win. Brantly went 1-for-3. Binghamton scored one run in the seventh and eighth innings, but Kenny Faulk wasn't credited with an earned run over two innings to pick up the save.

High-A Lakeland Flying Tigers
10-10, T-2nd in North Division

Team R H E
Lakeland 2 5 2
Daytona 7 12 1

In his second start of the season, Jacob Turner gave up four unearned runs on eight hits in six innings, picking up the loss. The first batter Turner faced reached on a throwing error and later scored on a groundout as the second out of the inning, so all four runs Turner gave up in the inning were unearned. Outside of that first inning, Turner gave up five hits over his final five innings. He had three strikeouts Saturday after not having one in his previous start. Avisail Garcia went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored as the only Lakeland player to record multiple hits.

Low-A West Michigan Whitecaps
11-11, 5th in Eastern Division

Team R H E
West Michigan 8 9 2
Quad Cities 6 5 2

Curt Casali went 2-for-5 with two RBIs as West Michigan opened up a 6-0 lead and held on for the win. Thomas Collier threw five scoreless innings in the start, giving up just two hits and picking up the win. But Tim Kelley gave up three earned runs in 2/3 of an inning in the sixth as the game got close again. West Michigan scored in the seventh and eighth to build up the lead, but Ramon Lebron gave up three runs in the ninth without recording an out, so Michael Torrealba came in, allowed two walks but picked up the save. All nine West Michigan hits were singles.
