Erie SeaWolves Double-A Northeast-Southwest Division (54-48)

Detroit Tigers fans got a surprise this afternoon as outfielder Daniel Cabrera, who was drafted in the 2020 MLB Draft out of LSU, was called up to Erie as reported by Jason Beck.

It was a good way to start the week as the SeaWolves went 4-2 against Bowie last week.  In game one, lefty Joey Wentz went five innings, allowing two runs on two hits, walked three, and struck out four.  Ryan Carpenter and Andre Lipcius both went deep in the 9-7 victory.

In game 2 on Wednesday, Garrett Hill, in his first start in Double-A, pitched a gem, allowing one run on three hits, walking a pair, and striking out six in the 6-1 victory.

After a tough loss on Thursday, Reese Olson was able to hang in for the win on Friday, allowing one run over five innings on one hit, with four walks and three strikeouts to earn his first Double-A win.

The SeaWolves on Saturday won 6 to 5 as they would score a run in each of the last three innings to pull ahead of the Baysox and yesterday, Bowie won the second game of the series, 6 to 5.

Gerson Moreno is still around

Moreno, who has been fighting injuries the last few seasons, put up 14 strikeouts over 10.1 innings of work for Erie in the month of August, allowing four runs on three hits. He is still a bit wild, with five walks and two hit batsmen but worth noting in Erie: 40.1 innings, 28 hits, 17 runs, and 56 strikeouts. If the 21 walks number can come down a bit, he could get back into consideration as a relief arm for Detroit but for now, feels like he is an organizational soldier.

Josh Lester is back

After spending four games in Toledo, Lester came back with a vengeance. Since his return in nine games, he has five home runs and is 14-for-40 (.350)

The SeaWolves entertain Harrisburg for six starting tomorrow.

Next. Colt and Murr descend into Lansing. dark
