A number of fine pitching performances in the minors last night as the affiliates went 3-2.
Syracuse 0 at Toledo 1
Josh Towers was the victim of poor run support, but he pitched a fine game. Towers allowed one run over 7 innings giving up 5 hits and 2 walks with 8 strikeouts. Shaun Marcum pitched a perfect 8th inning.
Sergio Santos continued his hitting streak with a single in 4 ABs. The hitting streak is now at 20 games.
NH 0 at Trenton 3
Another offensive stinker in the minors last night. NH had just two hits - a Lind single and Singleton double.
Kurt Isenberg pitched a full house for the Fisher Cats - 7 innings, 7 hits allowed, 2 runs allowed, 2 BBs, and 2 Ks. This pushed his record to 2-7. Apparently he doesn't know 2-7 is the worst starting poker hand in hold em.
Lakeland 0 at Dunedin 3 (game 1)
Ryan Klosterman hit his 10th home run for the D-Jays in the opener while Jesse Litsch went the distance on the mound. Litsch's line was 7 innings, 4 hits, 0 walks, 5 Ks and 0 runs.
Lakeland 0 at Dundein 6 (game 2)
Lakeland will likely be glad to get out of town after 14 scoreless innings yesterday. Ricky Romero was more than happy to match Litsch. Romero's line was 7 innings, 4 hits, 1 walk, 6 Ks and 0 runs.
Scott Dragicevich's 3 run HR was more than enough offense for Dunedin. Klosterman went 2-2 with a walk in game 2.
Wisconsin 2 at Lansing 6
Josh Bell went 3-3 with a double and home run to lead the Nuts. Brian Pettway also hit a home run for Lansing - his 11th (and it seems most of them have been on a Tuesday) going 2-3 on the night. Anthony Hatch also had two hits.
Aaron Tressler got the start and pitched 6 quality innings. He gave up 5 hits and 2 runs, but walked none and struck out 7. He's quietly put together a strong start to the season in Lansing.
3 - Josh Bell
2 - Ricky Romero
