Rick Porcello lost his first game of the season for the Hens in a tough start. He gave up five runs on ten hits and three walks with three strikeouts in six innings. Ryan Perry also had a rough outing in the 7-3 loss. He gave up an unearned run on one hit and two walks with a strikeout in 1 2/3 innings.
Will Rhymes had another nice game and he went three for five with a triple and two runs. Brent Dlugach went two for four with a double.
Nate Bump improved to 1-0 on the season with a nice start in the Hens 2-1 win over the Louisville Bats. He gave up a run on four hits and a walk with four strikeouts in seven innings. Ryan Perry struck out four in two innings to pick up his second save of the season.
Ryan Roberson drove in both Hens runs with a two run blast in the second inning. Brent Clevlen singled and he scored the other run.
Well, the dust finally settled on the Mud Hens 11-10, thirteen inning win after Jeff Larish doubled home Clete Thomas in the bottom half of the frame. It capped off an awesome game by the first baseman in which he went five for six with with two doubles, a walk, three RBIs and three runs. Brent Dlugach also put together a nice game and he went two for five with a double and four RBIs. Clete Thomas had four singles, two walks and he scored four times.
Eddie Bonine was roughed up in his four inning start and he gave up four runs. Ryan Perry pitched the final two frames and he walked just one to pick up his first win (and game) as a Hen.
Alright, John Sickels released his top 20 Tigers prospects and he has an interesting take on the state (or lack there of) of the Tigers minor league system. There’s little argument as to numbers one (Rick Porcello) and two (Ryan Perry), but I thought Brett Jacobson was an interesting number three. Still, after that, we’re already in the C+ so you could make an argument as to any of those guys moving up or down.
One guy who doesn’t get enough love is Ryan Strieby. He didn’t even make the top 20, yet he had a very nice season last year. Baseball America’s list is somewhat different, although my favorite list is Kevin Goldstein’s so I’m interesting to see what he puts out there.
A fantastic start by Lauren Gagnier went to waste in the Flying Tigers 3-2 loss to Dunedin. He gave up three hits and two walks with three strikeouts in seven shutout innings. Ryan Perry gave up an unearned run in the ninth inning and he took the loss to fall to 1-2.
Jeff Kunkel provided the bulk of Lakeland’s offense. He went two for three and he drove in both Lakeland runs.
