Erasmo Ramírez returned to Toledo’s bullpen for the first time since early May after being injured. He pitched 1.1 innings of hitless relief. Former Clipper pitcher Henry Martinez also pitched a hitless inning of relief for Toledo.
Double-A Erie SeaWolves (25-14)
Erie was aggressive early on against Altoona starter Trey McGough, swinging early in counts.

This set the stage for Spencer Torkelson, who already at this point had a double, hit his first home run in Double-A.
Riley Greene went 3-for-4 and Dillon Dingler went 2-for-3 as Greene, Dingler, and Torkelson all had multi-hit games. Ruben Garcia and Chaver Fernander held it down for the SeaWolves, pitching 3.1 scoreless innings of relief.

Rey Rivera hit his fifth home run of the season and Daniel Cabrera hit his fourth home run of the season and went 2-for-4 but the Whitecaps lost 9 to 4.
Bryant Packard added a double in the 7th inning.
Low-A Lakeland Flying Tigers (15-24)
Fort Myers got three runs in the first and that was enough to hang on against the Flying Tigers as they won 3 to 2. Danny Woodrow was in the lineup on a rehab assignment and went 1-for-5. Kingston Linak went 2-for-4, hitting his fifth home run of the season in the 3rd inning. Gage Workman also went 2-for-4 in the loss.
