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 walk off with a 3-2 win

thanks to Javier Azcona's one out solo homer in the bottom of the ninth. The blast earned the Tigers a split of the two game series with Lowell at Dodd. The teams continue the home and home series tomorrow in Lowell with another two game set.
Azcona also started the Tigers first rally of the game in the third with CT down 1-0 as he tripled to the right field corned and then scored and a RBI ground out by PJ Polk. Jason King followed with a RBI single to give the Tigers a 2-1 lead.
Luis Sanz started for the Tigers and pitched 5 innings. Ryan Woolley gave up a run in his two innings of work. Clemente Mendoza pitched the last two innings for the Tigers and gets the win before 1200+ fans.

Misc fan notes: Connecticut native and former Vanderbilt catcher Curtis Casali made his pro debut with the Tigers and doubled in four plate appearances.
