Thoughts and pictures of my local minor league baseball team the New York Penn League Connecticut Tigers; a Detriot farm team. We'll still be looking at former Navigators/Defenders players along the way....

Connecticut Tigers win their first game.....

tonight 7-3 over the Tri-City ValleyCats and even their record to 1-1. Luis Sanz throws 5 IP allowing just a single unearned run to earn the victory. James Robbins' (2 for 5) two run single in a three run third inning put the Tigers ahead 3-1. PJ Polk (2 for 5, 2 runs scored) hit the Tigers first homer in the fifth inning, a solo shot to make it 4-1. Eric Roof and Ryan Enos each had a RBI. Alexander Nunez went 2 for 4 with a double and a run scored. Tiger reliever Kevan Hess, the third relief pitcher used by Connecticut, stuck out the side in the ninth to end the game.

Misc fan notes: Tigers reliever Shawn Teufel was the first reliever out of the Tigers bullpen tonight. Does anyone know if he's related to former Mets infielder Tim Teufel?

4400+ at the "Joe" tonight.
