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 hang on and win 4-3 tonight...

over the Aberdeen IronBirds at Dodd. Matt Crouse (4-1) pitched 6+ strong innings yo earn his fourth straight victory. The Tigers scored on an error in the second inning to jump out to a 1-0 lead.
Connecticut tacked on three runs in the third on a Tyler Collins (2-4) RBI single, a Den Green sac fly and an Arron Westlake RBI single to make in 4-0 Tigers. The baby Birds of Baltimore scored a pair of runs in the seventh. The first Ironbird run was doubled in by Ryan Zrenda of Old Lyme, CT. Zrenda, a Brown grad, was just signed by Baltimore as a minor league free agent earlier this week. The double was his first pro hit in his second game. He had a large cheering section on hand.
Melvin Mercedes (save, 2) allowed a run in the top of the ninth to make the score 4-3 to wrap up the game in just over two hours.
