Toledo fell to Columbus 4-3 on Monday. Toledo made a comeback attempt to tie the game in the seventh and it stayed that way until the bottom of the ninth, when Robbie Weinhardt saw a string of bad luck allow the winning run to score unearned. Weinhardt committed an error himself, and then allowed an infield single on a ball that deflected off him. It was Weinhardt's first loss as a Mud Hen. Charlie Furbush got the start and did well, giving up two runs in 5 2/3 innings of work. He also struck out five. Robinson Diaz and Cale Iorg each managed a double and scored a run.
The SeaWolves fell to Altoona 5-1 on Monday, with Brooks Brown struggling as he took the loss. Brown didn't make it past the first inning, allowing four runs on four hits in his lone inning of work. A trio of relievers teamed up to allow just one unearned run over seven innings, but the 'Wolves couldn't turn their ten hit performance into many runs. John Murrian doubled in Bryan Pounds for the club's only run, while Brandon Douglas and Alden Carrithers each added three hits apiece.
The Whitecaps picked up a 5-2 win over Great Lakes on Monday, as they continue to work to put the .500 mark behind them in the win-loss column. Luis Angel Sanz got the start and the win, giving up two runs in 7 1/3 innings of work. Kenny Faulk recorded the final five outs, striking out four of them, for his tenth save. At the plate, Clay Jones had a pair of hits and a pair of RBI, and Jeff Rowland had a pair of hits and scored twice. Avisail Garcia also added a hit, a run and an RBI.
The CT-Tigers fell to Tri-City on Monday, falling 10-2. Rayni Guichardo had a rough go of it as the starter, giving up three runs in 1 1/3 innings of work. Miguel Mejia came on and pitched three scoreless innings of relief, but Drew Gagnier couldn't match that success allowing four more runs in his two innings, and the route was on. Alexander Nunez had two hits including a double and scored a run for the club, while James Robbins added a hit and an RBI.
