Dennis Tankersley was crusing in this one, and he came out in the eighth inning after giving up two runs to make it a 6-3 lead. Then in the ninth, the Jason Karnuth collapsed and gave up six runs to lose it. The two errors in the inning didn’t help things though.
Chris Shelton had a big day at the plate. He went two for three with two doubles, two walks and four RBIs. Kevin Hooper went four for five with two doubles, an RBI and two runs.
The Seawolves lost 2-1 and their hitters were completely shutdown in the pitcher’s duel. Andres Torres drove in the only run of the game for Erie and Clete Thomas singled and scored the only run.
A solid start by Jonathan Connolly went to waste in the loss. He gave up one run on three hits and two walks with two strikeouts in five solid innings.
A lot of Flying Tigers contributed today in their 8-7 win over Sarasota. Mark Haske tripled and he drove in three runs. Cameron Maybin went one for three with two walks, two RBIs and a run while Justin Justice went two for five with a two run homer.
Gabriel Benetiz picked up the win with 1 1/3 shutout innings. Freddy Dolsi picked up his third save despite giving up a run in the ninth.
The White Caps were shut out today in their 4-0 loss despite being held to nine hits. In all, the team left eleven baserunners on base. James Skelton was a perfect three for three and he drew one walk.
Lauren Gagnier was hit hard and he dropped to 1-3 on the season. He gave up four runs on eight hits and three walks with four strikeouts in six innings.
The Mud Hens scored just one run on four hits in their 3-1 loss to Rochester. Brent Clevlen scored the lone run after he tripled and he was also the only hitter to reach base twice.
Ron Chiavacci had a solid start but he dropped to 1-1 with the loss. He gave up three runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings.
Jonah Nickerson had a solid start but because of a lack of run support, he dropped 1-2 with the loss. He gave up three runs on five hits with nine strikeouts in seven innings.
Deik Scram was the hitting star in the 4-2 loss. He went two for three with a double and a run.
Eddie Bonine improved to 2-1 on the season with seven solid innings in the Sea Wolves 6-2 win. He gave up one run on five hits with three strikeouts.
Brent Dlugach had a big day at the plate. He went two for four with a three run homer and two runs scored. Jackson Mellan also had a nice game and he went two for four with a homerun, two RBIs and two runs.
For the second straight start, Burke Badenhop was hit hard. And right when I started talking about him to others. He gave up five runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts in seven innings and the loss drops him to 2-2. His overall numbers still looks good but he has to buck this downward trend he’s established in the last two starts.
Cameron Maybin was back in the lineup after he took a couple of days off because of a stiff back. He went one for three with a walk. Ryan Roberson accounted for all of the Flying Tigers offense in the 7-1 loss with a solo homerun.
Virgil Vasquez had his third straight solid start as the Mud Hens topped Rochester 6-2. He gave up two runs on seven hits with six strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings. In his last three starts, he’s given up just two earned runs in 18 1/3 innings and he’s struck out 25.
The Mud Hens did most of their hitting once Matt Garza left the game but it doesn’t matter when you score them. Jack Hannahan and Mike Hessman went yard and Hessman finished with two runs in the win.
Cameron Maybin was out of the lineup and I’ve been looking for a reason why. Haven’t found anything but when I do, I’ll let you know. Anyway, the Flying Tigers were held to just one run on four hits and Wilkin Ramirez scored that one run in the second inning.
Andrew Miller was hit hard again and he gave up eight runs on ten hits and four walks with four strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings. It’s his second tough start in a row and the third time he’s been roughed up this season.
Eulogio De La Cruz took a hard luck loss today as the Seawolves provided him with only two runs of support. He gave up three runs on seven hits and he struck out ten without walking a single batter. The loss drops him to 2-2 on the season.
Erie managed just three hits and Brent Dlugach was the only Seawolf to reach base three times. He singled, walked twice and scored a run.
The White Caps couldn’t put a single run on the board and a great start by Christopher Cody was wasted in the 1-0 loss. Cody gave up on unearned run on two hits with six strikeouts in seven innings and the loss is his first of the season.
Louis Ott was the hitting star, if you can have one in a shutout. He went two for four with a double.
Brennan Boesch homered and drove in four runs in the White Caps 11-3 win over Peoria. Gorkys Hernandez also had a nice game and he went three for four with a double, two RBIs and two runs. Audy Ciriaco went three for five with an RBI and two runs.
Duane Below picked up the win his start. He gave up three runs on three hits and two walks with six strikeouts in five innings of work.
Lakeland lost 11-3 to Clearwater tonight and it was Sendy Vasquez who took the brunt of the offensive onslaught. He gave up eight runs (five earned) on nine hits and a walk with two strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings.
Cameron Maybin had the night off in this one. Justin Justice continued to hit the ball well and he went two for three with a triple, an RBI and a run.
Because of the rainout last night, Erie played two against Akron and each team took a game. Erie won the first one 4-2 with a strong outing by Dallas Trahern. The big right hander improved to an impressive 4-0 on the season and he gave up two runs on six hits and a walk with two strikeouts in six innings of work. At the plate, Brent Dlugach went two for three and he scored two runs.
Game two didn’t go as well because Akron won 7-3. Jair Jurrjens was hit hard and he lost his first decision of the year. He gave up five runs on four hits and two walk with four strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings. Andres Torres went one for three with both one run and one RBI.
This is just one of those things. Timo Perez had an eighteen game hitting streak and he was called on to pinch hit in an extra inning loss to Charlotte. With just the one chance, he didn’t come through so the streak ends at 18.
Even more important is the Hens lost this one 6-4. Zach Miner gave up two runs in the sixth that tied the game and then Preston Larrison gave up two unearned runs in the tenth on a two run homer to lose it.
All four Mud Hens runs came via the long ball. Chris Shelton hit a two run shot and Ryan Rayburn and Mike Hessman each hit solo shots.
Eleazar Aponte got it done on the mound today for the Flying Tigers. He held Sarasota to just three hits and two walks and he struck out five in six shutout innings. The win improved his record to 2-1.
