May 2nd Games


AAA Toledo Mud Hens
16-9, 1st in West Division

Team R H E
Pawtucket 3 7 2
Toledo 5 7 0

Doug Fister gave up two hits over four scoreless innings in his first rehab start with the Mud Hens. Fister threw 68 pitches, 44 for strikes, walking one and striking out five. He told reporters afterward that he felt good. It is yet to be seen if Fister will make another start with the Hens. He has been on the DL since early April with an abdominal strain. Ryan Strieby led Toledo at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a two-run homer. Justin Henry went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs.

Team R H E
Altoona 11 14 2
Erie 8 13 0

Kelvin De La Cruz struggled right off the start, giving up six earned runs over 1 1/3 innings to pick up the loss. The relief wasn’t much better, as the Erie pitchers were pounded all night. Zach Samuels gave up three earned runs over two innings, and Michael Morrison gave up two over 2 1/3 innings. Down 11-3 in the seventh, Erie scored five runs to cut the deficit to three, but couldn’t do anything else. Rob Brantly and Tony Plagman each went 2-for-4 with a solo home run.
