Minor League Recap: July 4, 2012

Columbus 13, Toledo 3
In a game remarkably similar to that of the big-league club, the Clippers scored 12 runs in the first 5 inning, and they blew out Toledo by 10. Chris Seddon, like Derek Lowe gave up 3 runs in 6 innings to get the easy win. Seven of the Clipper starters had at least three hits. Ryan Rohlinger went 3-for-4 with a home run, Chad Huffman had two doubles in 5 at-bats, and Russ Canzler went 2-for-4 with a walk, among many other nice days at the plate.

Akron 9, Erie 2
Akron continued the organizational trend of blowout victories, jumping on the SeaWolves early. Thomas Neal again led the way offensively with a 3-for-4 day with a double and walk, and Juan Diaz went 2-for-4 with a triple. Paolo Espino allowed two early runs, but then settled down and would go seven innings having surrendered just those two runs.


Salem 12, Carolina 3
The Mudcats participated in a blowout, but in this case they were the team blown out. Will Roberts got the start and was rocked for 9 runs (all earned) in 4 innings. The 5th round pick from 2011 had pitched before the promotion to Carolina in May, but he hasn't yet adjusted to the Carolina League (56 innings, 5.30 ERA, 32 SO, 17 BB). Giovanny Urshela had the only extra-base hit of the day for Carolina, a 6th inning two-run homer. Tony Wolters and Ronny Rodriguez both went 3-for-4.

Lake County 6, West Michigan 1
Joseph Colon twirled five innings of shutout baseball, and the Captains scored in 5 of their 9 at-bats. Six Captains had two hits apiece, and Jose Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a double.

Aberdeen 3, Mahoning Valley 1
Joseph Wendle continued his torrid start, going 2-for-4 with a double. Jake Sisco got the start, allowing 1 run in 5 innings.

AZL Indians were rained out
