April 16 Minor League Report

Buffalo Bisons (5-4)

Postponed due to rain.

New Hampshire Fisher Cats (6-7)

In a game where each team matched the other step by step, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats came out just on the wrong side of a 7-6 loss to the New Britain Rock Cats.  Deck McGuire recorded another solid start, throwing six innings, giving up two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five, but Tommy Hottovy couldn’t get more than one out in the bottom of the seventh, immediately after the Fisher Cats opened a four run lead in the top of the inning.  The score remained tied until the bottom of the 9th, when Joel Carreno, one of the most reliable pitchers for New Hampshire this year, was small-balled to the loss.  He gave up a single to leadoff batter James Beresord who was bunted over to second and moved up to third on a ground out.  Then, with two outs and Beresford on third, Carreno threw a wild pitch past catcher Sean Ochinko to end the game on a sour note.

1B Clint Robinson led the attack with three hits, including his first home run of the year, Brad Glenn slammed a triple, while doubles-machine John Tolisano hit his sixth of year with Amadeo Zazueto and Ryan Schimpf also doubling.  Kenny Wilson had what one could say was a mixed day.  He went one for four with two stolen bases, but was caught stealing and made an error in the field.

Lansing Lugnuts (4-6)

Another outstanding pitching performance got the Lugnuts back on the right track on Tuesday as Javier Avendano went six innings, giving up only a hit and two walks against four strikeouts in a 4-0 win over the West Michigan White Caps.  Avendano was followed out of the pen by Wil Browning for an inning and Tucker Donahue for two innings, all of shutout relief.  The offense, despite being held in check to only four hits and one walk, scored four runs by taking advantage of a couple of West Michigan errors.  Gustavo Pierre led the way with a two for four night with two doubles.
