The Flying Tigers picked up a 7-4 loss at the hands of Brevard County on Saturday. Adam Wilk got the start, but made it just 3 1/3 innings as a rain delay stopped the game for nearly an hour and sent Wilk to the showers early. He allowed three runs (two earned) in his work. Michael Torrealba also allowed an unearned run in relief, but it would be Erik Crichton that would take the loss, giving up three runs with two earned in 1 1/3 innings.

Trevor Feeney got the start and the win, tossing six strong innings, allowing just one run while scattering seven hits. Kevan Hess pitched the final three innings, allowing a pair of runs to earn his first save with the 'Caps. The offense combined for 21 hits as everyone in the lineup managed at least one hit. Corey Jones had four hits including an RBI, while Wade Gaynor added three hits including two doubles and two RBI. Tony Plagman also had three hits including a pair of doubles, and Hernan Perez had two hits and two runs driven in.
The CT-Tigers split their doubleheader with Auburn on Saturday night, winning 2-1 but then falling 1-0. Clemente Mendoza got the start and went the distance for the club in the first game, allowing a run on five hits with six strikeouts and no walks in seven innings. Julio Rodriguez and James Robbins each drove in a run. In the second game, Patrick Lawson took the loss, allowing a run in five innings of work. The lineup meanwhile committed as many errors as had hits, with three each.
The GCL Tigers used a five run fifth inning to triumph over the GCL Pirates 5-4. Jade Todd got the start and took a no decision, giving up four runs in 3 2/3 innings. Yadiel Polanco got the win in relief, recording two outs. Cole Nelson and Bruce Rondon combined to pitch the final three innings without allowing a run, with Rondon picking up his 15th save. Pete Miller drove in a pair of runs for the club, while Edwin Gomez added a hit, a run and an RBI.
The DSL Tigers picked up a 5-3 win over the DSL Angels on Saturday. Yinni Calderon got the start and a no decision, tossing five shutout innings but seeing Walter Lachapel lose the lead in relief.
