Detroit Tigers Minor League Report for June 9th

Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens: (15-16)

Matt Manning earned his first Triple-A win and Toledo hit four home runs in the 10-2 win over the Louisville Bats. Manning pitched six innings, allowing two runs on four hits, allowing a pair of walks, and struck out eight. Manning was sitting 95-97 MPH on his fastball, throwing his changeup with efficiency.

Jacob Robson, who was called up to play for Team Canada as they were trying to qualify for the Tokyo Olympic Games, was back with Toledo and continued his torrid start to the minor league season.  He went 4-for-5 with a home run and drove in three.  Daz Cameron, who left the game as a precaution when Derek Hill was injured in last night’s loss to Seattle, went 2-for-4.

Aderlin Rodriguez hit his seventh home run on the season, leading the team in that category and the bullpen pitched three scoreless innings.

Double-A Erie SeaWolves: (21-10)

The SeaWolves continue to have the best record among the affiliates as they came back last night to win 4-2 over Somerset.  After the Patriots took a 2-0 lead after an Oswaldo Cabrera home run, Erie started to chip away. A Ryan Kreidler sac fly scored Dylan Rosa to make it 2 to 1, Kerry Carpenter hit a home run in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game at 2.

Jon Rosoff scored on a wild pitch to make it 3-2 then John Valente doubled in the last run. Max Green, Gerson Moreno, and Henry Martinez combined to pitch six innings of three-hit relief, striking out nine.

High-A West Michigan Whitecaps (16-15)

The Whitecaps lost their third in a row, 8-1 to the Lansing Lugnuts. Dillon Dingler went 1-for-4 and Rey Rivera went 1-for-3. Trei Cruz drove in the lone run for the Whitecaps on a sacrifice fly.

Low-A Lakeland Flying Tigers (14-18)

Lakeland lost in 11 innings 5 to 4. Jimmy Kerr, Gage Workman, and Colt Keith all went 1-for-4.  Williander Moreno pitched 2.2 innings of hitless relief, striking out four.
