Detroit Tigers Minor League Report for June 3rd

Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens (12-14)

Toledo dropped both in their doubleheader last night in Memphis 10-6 and 3-2.  In the first game, Matt Manning pitched 3.2 innings, allowing seven runs on nine hits and struck out five. Over his six games started for Toledo, he has an ERA of 9.24 and he has given up 11 home runs over 26.1 innings pitched.

Daz Cameron registered multiple hits in both games, going 4-for-7 on the night. Yariel Gonzalez had a pair of hits in the first game and finished 3-for-6 on the night. Isaac Paredes also had a pair of hits in the first game and Aderlin Rodriguez hit a solo shot also in the first game.

Double-A Erie SeaWolves (17-8)

Apparently, all the rain is falling in Akron, Ohio, as Erie was rained out once again.

High-A West Michigan Whitecaps (16-10)

The Whitecaps won their 12th game in their last 15 games in grand fashion as they beat the Great Lakes Loons 12-1 as Spencer Torkelson, Dane Myers, and Dillon Dingler all hit home runs. For Dingler, he went deep for the second straight game and his blast last night hit the streets as illustrated by Whitecaps play-by-play man Dan Hasty.

Yes, folks, Dingler is a dude as we discussed from what myself,  Chris Brown, Jacob Boes, James Chipman of Prospects Live have discussed at length. Spencer Torkelson hit his fourth home run of the season on an absolute no-doubter to centerfield.

Keider Montero had another start, going 5 innings in the win, allowing one run on four hits, walked two, and had six strikeouts, five of which were caught looking as he had his changeup going. In the last 10 innings of work, he has allowed just one run.

Low-A Lakeland Flying Tigers (13-14)

In the first game of the doubleheader, the Flying Tigers won 7-6 in a back and forth game. Outfielder Connor Perry, who was drafted in the 28th round in 2019,  went 2-for-3 with a double and Gage Workman went 1-for-4. Kody Clemens in Lakeland on a rehab assignment went 1-for-3 with a pair of RBIs.

In the second game, Lakeland pitchers issued 15 walks in a 16-2 loss. Workman went 1-for-4 with a double.
