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....

Tigers top Spinners 1-0 tonight...

in a game that took a tidy 2:04 to play. Connecticut Tigers pitchers Luis Sanz (6 IP, 3 hits 6 Ks) and Micheal Torrealba (3 IP, no hits 7 Ks) combine for the shut out. Sanz improves to 3-0 on the season with a 0.56 ERA. Torrealba earns his first save and lowers his ERA to 0.90.
Connecticut scored the only run of the game in the second inning. James Robbins walked and advanced to second on a ground out on a pitch he was running on. Ryan Enos doubled Robbins home as Lowell's CF Bryce Brentz lost the ball in the sun on the angle he took toward the ball.

Misc fan notes: Got to admit I was disappointed in the turnout tonight with just 1200 fans in all with the Red Sox farm team in town...crowd however was into it...

The other note I have is that mascots may come and go but Tater always seems to get a great response for the fans whenever he shows up...part of the collective DNA around here I guess.

Home stand wraps up tomorrow against Lowell as the Tigers go for the sweep.

Jeff Rowland is no longer with the club, I believe. Les Smith is new to the squad.
And Robbie Weinhardt is going back to AAA, since he was here on rehab.
