May 28th Games
AAA Toledo Mud Hens
24-27, 3rd in West Division
Andy Oliver lasted just three innings after giving up five runs (four earned). Oliver allowed five hits and five walks, along with a wild pitch. Control remains his biggest issue, as only 34 of his 70 pitches were for strikes. Brad Eldred went 3-for-4 with two homers and three RBIs, but only two other Mud Hens recorded a hit, including Ben Guez, who went 2-for-4.
AA Erie Seawolves

In the first game of the doubleheader, James Avery allowed two runs in the sixth and Austin Wood allowed two in the seventh. Avery got the start and was credited with the loss. He gave up seven hits and three walks while striking out seven. Rob Brantly had two of Erie's three hits.
In the second game, it was Erie that did the late scoring, as the SeaWolves scored two in the sixth and two in the seventh for the walk-off win. The game-winning run was scored on a sac fly from Rawley Bishop, who went 1-for-3 with a run scored. Bishop popped out to first in foul territory, but Brantly was able to score the winning run. Patrick Cooper allowed three runs (two earned) in the start. Zach Samuels pitched a scoreless sixth and seventh and picked up the win. Brantly went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run scored.
