The Mud Hens game down in Memphis was postponed due to rain and it will be a part of a doubleheader on Thursday. 

Double-A Erie SeaWolves (17-8)

The SeaWolves won their third in a row with a 7-2 victory over the Akron Rubberducks last night as Riley Greene hit his fifth home run of the season as he would finish 1-for-5 on the evening.

Andre Lipcius, who was just called up from West Michigan, made himself at home rather quickly with a single that would drive in Ryan Kriedler in the top of the 1st for the 1-0 lead. On his debut, Lipcius would go 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk. Kreidler also had a multi-hit day, going 2-for-5. Josh Lester also hit a two-run shot, his fourth home run of the season in the fourth to give Erie the 4-0 lead.

Ryan Carpenter hit his sixth double of the season and Erie got four scoreless innings in relief from Max Green and Ethan DeCaster.

High-A West Michigan Whitecaps (15-9)

The first place in the High-A Central West Michigan Whitecaps struck for six runs in the first inning and hammered out 13 hits in the 7-5 victory over the Great Lakes Loons last night. Wenceel Perez, making his High-A debut, started the game with a single then Spencer Torkelson ripped a double to score the team’s first run.

Then, a Daniel Cabrera triple would score Torkelson to make the game 2-0. A Dillon Dingler double would drive in Cabrera.

Eric De La Rosa shows off his impressive speed with this single to the first baseman as the Whitecaps batted around in the 1st.

Four Whitecaps would have multi-hit games as Dingler went 3-for-5, Cabrera 2-for-5, Jose King 2-for-5, and De La Rosa 2-for-3 with a walk. Wayne State alumni Jared Tobey, Angel Reyes, and Ruben Garcia pitched four scoreless innings in the victory.

Low-A Lakeland Flying Tigers (12-13)

The Flying Tigers scored three in the seventh to tie the game at 3, led by a Jimmy Kerr triple to score the newest Flying Tiger infielder Alvaro Gonzalez, one of the highly regarded international signings back in 2017 but they would lose the game 5 to 4.

Nick Quintana went 1-for-4 with a double and Gage Workman also went 1-for-4 and stole his 11th base on the season.
