    Tuesday is 2 for 1 night meaning if you have a ticket, it is redeemable for two people to see the game. Baseball Wingo (a bingo game) will be played by the fans seeking wings from Natalies' and prizes from the Tigers.

    Wednesday is All You Can Eat for a special price.

    Thursday $1 beer is gone, but it still covers sodas. Instead, purchase one beer at regular price and receive one free.

    That's all I have from memory

    TAMPA | Nick Castellanos' two-out double in the top of the 10th inning drove in the winning run and Tyler Collins' ground-rule double helped seal the Lakeland Flying Tigers' 4-2 victory over the Tampa Yankees on Friday night.

    Castellanos picked up his second double of the game off Tampa reliever Mark Montgomery. It drove in Daniel Fields who walked earlier and stole second base. Castellanos was driven in by Collins' shot to left-center field.

    Patrick Cooper came on in the bottom of the 10th and pitched a perfect frame to pick up his first save. Bruce Rondon got the win.

    After 10 innings, T-Yanks drop another to Tigers - Tampa Bay Tampa Yankees | Examiner.com

    After 10 innings, T-Yanks drop another to Tigers

    Bethany Cohen
    Tampa Yankees Examiner
    After a disappointing loss to the Lakeland Flying Tigers in the home opener on Thursday night, the Tampa Yankees looked to rebound in this second game of the series on Friday night.
    Shane Greene (ERA 1.80) took the mound for Tampa and was hit by a ball after the first pitch thrown on the night. After a visit to the mound by the T-Yanks staff it was determined that all was well. Greene would then give up the first run to the Tigers.

    In the bottom of the 4th, JR Murphy would score the tying run after a wild pitch by Lakeland's third baseman Nick Castellanos.

    Greene would end up pitching 5 innings, allowing 4 hits and 1 run, striking out 3. A solid outing for the 23 year old newcomer

    LAKELAND | The Flying Tigers completed a rare three-game sweep of Tampa, 5-2, Saturday night, and are off to their fastest start in a decade of Florida State League baseball.

    Tyler Collins and his Lakeland teammates supported left-hander Brian Flynn with a 13-hit attack as the Flying Tigers won their 62nd FSL home opener before a festive crowd of 2,020 at windy Joker Marchant Stadium.

    Flynn (1-0) certainly did his part, limiting the Yankees to four hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings, throwing 62 of his 85 pitches for strikes.

    "With the wind blowing in hard like that I wanted to pound the strike zone and challenge them to hit the ball past our defense," Flynn said.

    Flynn's strategy worked because center fielder Daniel Fields, second baseman Hernan Perez, and catcher James McCann all turned in solid defensive plays.

    Collins enjoyed his third consecutive three-hit game, a big reason the Lakeland offense batted .321 in its first sweep of the Yankees since May 24-26, 2010.

    "Tyler's start doesn't surprise me because he has great hand-eye coordination, a quick bat, and great knowledge of the plate," Lakeland hitting coach Larry Herndon said.

    Nick Castellanos, Avisail Garcia, and Dixon Machado contributed two hits apiece for the Flying Tigers, who had not won their first three games since 2002.

    "We've worked hard all spring and it's nice to see that work pay off," Collins said. "We've played less than a week, but I can already see that we're jelling as a team.

    Flynn's solid outing followed similar strong starts by Alex Burgos (6 IP, 2 ER) and Eric Eichhorn (6 IP, 1 ER).

    "They've done a good job of throwing all their pitches for strikes and you're going to win a lot of games when you do that," Lakeland pitching coach Mike Maroth said.

    LAKELAND | Brevard County used Michael Walker's two-out, ninth-inning three-run homer off reliever Bruce Rondon sent Lakeland to a 5-4 loss on Monday night.

    Lakeland right-hander Mark Sorensen limited the Manatees to two hits and one run in a stellar seven-inning outing before the bullpen let him down.

    Sorensen allowed a third-inning single to Shawn Zarraga and a seventh-inning solo home run to T. J. Mittelstaedt. He struck out two and walked no one.

    "Mark worked aggressively, stayed ahead of the hitters and used the movement on his fastball to keep us in the game," Lakeland pitching coach Mike Maroth said. "He did everything you want your starter to do."

    Down 5-2 in the bottom of the ninght, Lakeland mounted a rally.

    Nick Castellanos led off with an opposite-field home run, and Tyler Collins doubled and scored on James McCann's infield single and a Brevard County error. The Manatees managed to get out of the inning

    Lakeland left 13 runners on base.

    The Manatees (3-1) and Flying Tigers (3-1) will meet at Marchant again tonight at 6:30, when left-hander Shawn Teufel is expected to make his first start for Lakeland.

    LAKELAND | The Flying Tigers showed little respect for Milwaukee's first pick in the 2011 draft but still lost to Brevard County 4-3 in FSL baseball action at Joker Marchant Stadium on Tuesday night.

    Manatees ace Taylor Jungmann (2-0) managed to earn the win despite giving up three runs and seven hits over a two-inning stretch early in the game.

    Wade Gaynor and James Robbins belted back-to-back doubles off Jungmann to score a run in the second, and the Flying Tigers bunched together five singles in the third to score two more.

    Dixon Machado, Daniel Fields, Nick Castellanos, Tyler Collins, and Gaynor collected those hits, but Jungmann got out of the jam.

    As it turned out, the third-inning hit barrage provided Lakeland with its last serious scoring threat of the night. Jungmann settled down and relievers Thomas Keeling Casey Medlen retired all seven Flying Tigers they faced in the last 2 1/3 innings.

    "I thought we took a good approach to Jungmann early in the game and caught up to his fastball," said Lakeland's leading hitter Tyler Collins. "But he started mixing up his pitches more and showed everyone why he was the No. 12 pick in the draft."

    Shawn Teufel (0-1) took the loss, becoming the first Lakeland starter to give up more than two runs. The Manatees scored all four of their runs (one unearned) against Teufel, who gave up six hits in four innings.

    Tyler Clark and Matt Crowse tossed five scoreless innings out of the Lakeland bullpen, giving up just one hit, walking two and striking out five.

    The Flying Tigers (3-2) will try to salvage the third game of the series at 6:30 tonight at Marchant.

    LAKELAND | It was death on the Marchant Stadium basepaths for Brevard County Wednesday night, but the Manatees still managed to get enough runners all the way around to home plate to defeat Lakeland, 5-1.

    Brevard County (5-1) completed a three-game sweep of the Flying Tigers (3-3) despite striking out 13 times, and having three runners picked off and another caught stealing.

    The Manatees overcame their futility at the plate and on the bases by belting three doubles, a triple and a home run. Michael Walker doubled and tripled, while T. J. Mittlestaedt singled and homered.

    More importantly, Brevard County pitchers also struck out 13 Lakeland batters and limited the Flying Tigers to five singles, a double and a homer. Starter Jimmy Nelson (1-0) and a trio of relievers held Lakeland slugger Tyler Collins without a hit for the first time this season.

    Lakeland's homer and its double came off the bat of center fielder Daniel Fields, who also beat out an infield single in the fifth. Avisail Garcia, who singled twice, was the only other Flying Tiger with more than one hit.

    Lakeland starter Alex Burgos (1-1) gave up up seven hits and two runs in six innings. The 21-year-old left-hander walked one and struck out seven.

    Since Turner is on the 25 Man roster (doesn't look like the Lakeland DL) has he warmed up at all during a game or anything since staying down there?

    PCtigerfan reported him in Tampa in the dugout last Tuesday and that seems to be the only sighting. He could be working with EST though.

    added: there is contact with the current team. We are trying to arrange a reunion for the players we took out to dinner in 2010, and our player contact will contact Turner.

    Brian Flynn and Wade Gaynor celebrated their birthdays in style as Lakeland defeated Clearwater, 7-1, in FSL baseball Thursday night.

    A Joker Marchant Stadium crowd of 521 saw Flynn (3-0) limit the league's top-hitting team to four hits and a single unearned run. Gaynor supported Flynn's stellar outing with an RBI double and a two-run homer, the sixth consecutive year Lakeland's designated hitter/third baseman has homered on his birthday.

    "I wish I could explain it or do it more often on days when it's not my birthday," said Gaynor, a 24-year-old product of Western Kentucky who was West Michigan's Player of the Year in 2010.

    As a hitter, Gaynor fortunately doesn't have to face Flynn's imposing 6-foot-8 frame or his 93-mph fastball from 60 feet away. In his three starts with Lakeland this season, Flynn is 3-0 with a 0.92 ERA.

    "I've been able to move my fastball around and stay ahead of hitters but (James) McCann and (Mike) Maroth deserve a lot of the credit for my success," said Flynn, referring to his catcher and pitching coach. "I agreed with every pitch McCann called for tonight and Maroth really helped me simplify my mechanics.

    Clearwater's battery of Jesse Biddle and Cameron Rupp might not have been quite in sync themselves. The Flying Tigers abused Biddle for three doubles and a homer and stole three bases to up their league-leading total to 19 in the first 13 games of the season.


    McCann had one of those doubles and singled ahead of Gaynor's second-inning home run. Nick Castellanos also doubled, while Avisail Garcia and Hernan Perez each singled twice. The Flying Tigers broke out of a four-game hitting funk during which they were shut out twice and batted only .164 (21-for-128).

    "I think more than anything that we just ran into good pitching in Brevard County," Lakeland hitting coach Larry Herndon said. "But this team has a lot of talent and you're not going to keep their bats silent for long."

    Center fielder Daniel Fields and shortstop Dixon Machado also turned in outstanding defensive plays for the Flying Tigers (6-7), who will play host to the Threshers (4-9) at Marchant again tonight at 7:11.

    Left-hander Matt Crouse (0-0, 0.00) will make his first start for Lakeland and is expected to be opposed by Clearwater ace Austin Wright (2-0, 2.45).

    Crouse, who made three relief appearances for the Flying Tigers, replaced Mark Sorensen in the rotation because Sorensen was promoted to Erie Thursday.

    DAYTONA | Rubi Silva's two-run triple in the bottom of the sixth broke a tie and sent the Daytona Cubs to a 6-2 victory over the Lakeland Flying Tigers on Sunday evening.

    Lakeland had just tied the game at 2-2 in the top of the sixth on Avisail Garcia's first home run of the year, but the Cubs quickly untied the game.
    The first two batters reached on a walk and a single and were sacrificed up a base on Elieser Bonne's sac bunt.
    Silva then connected on his first triple of the year. He scored on Chad Noble's sacrifice fly.
    The Cubs went up 2-0 early on the back of a solo home run by Bonne in the second inning and a RBI single by Matthew Szczur in the third.
    Alex Burgos took the loss for the Flying Tigers. He went 5 1/3 innings and gave up six hits and five walks.
    Daniel Fields and Nick Castellanos both went 2-for-4 to lead Lakeland at the plate. Fields also had a RBI double.

    Flying Tigers maul Cubs - Sports

    Flying Tigers maul Cubs

    DAYTONA BEACH -- Lakeland Flying Tigers manager Dave Huppert has had to take pitchers out of games before when they had a no-hitter going.

    So when Huppert removed Jacob Turner after four no-hit shutout innings against the Daytona Cubs on Monday night, it wasn't that much of a surprise considering the right-hander was making his first appearance of the season after being shut down for shoulder tendinitis in mid-March.

    Add the fact that the Detroit Tigers have $5.5 million tied up in a major league contract with Turner and there was no chance the 20-year-old was going back on the mound in the fifth inning.

    Turner didn't pitch the minimum innings to receive the win in Lakeland's 7-2 triumph over the Cubs before a crowd of 1,932 at Jackie Robinson Ballpark. But the No. 11 prospect on Minor League Baseball's rankings was nearly perfect, yielding just two walks in an outing which his fastball sat between 91 and 93 mph and topped out at 95.

    "I've never been pulled out of a no-hitter," Turner said with a laugh. "But that's not what it's about this time out. Just get your work in. (It's) big picture."

    Turner was on a pitch limit and was taken out after he had thrown 48 pitches. Huppert said the plan is for Turner to take the hill again Saturday when the Flying Tigers (7-8) visit the Cubs (5-12).

    Turner, the No. 9 pick in the first round of the 2009 draft, already has reached the major leagues. He made three starts last season, just two years out of high school. He went 0-1 with an 8.53 ERA.Turner is now beginning a journey he and the Tigers hope will get him back to the big leagues.

    "(My fastball) felt good," Turner said. "It felt like it was coming out normal. That was something that wasn't happening this spring. I definitely think there were a lot of positives to take away from it. I threw my fastball pretty well.

    "I would have liked to have had a better feel for my breaking ball, but I think that will come with more innings."

    The Cubs had their three-game winning streak snapped. Starting pitcher Zach Cates fell to 0-3, but the three earned runs he allowed in four innings actually lowered his ERA to 15.12.

    Lakeland's Matt Little (1-2) got the win despite losing the no-hit bid against the first batter he faced. Richard Jones singled to right to open the home half of the fifth.

    But the Cubs didn't muster much offense, scoring lone runs in the eighth and ninth innings and getting just three hits.

    "Anytime you don't hit good you appear a little flat, and we looked a little flat," Daytona manager Brian Harper said. "We made a couple of mistakes on the bases. We missed a hit-and-run, got picked off, stuff like that."

    The Cubs had two runners picked off first base that were tagged out at second base, and another runner was thrown out stealing at second on what should have been a hit-and-run except the batter missed the sign and didn't swing.

    The Cubs travel to Lakeland for one game tonight before moving on to Clearwater for a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies' affiliate.

    LAKELAND | The Flying Tigers took advantage of 11 Daytona walks and defeated the Cubs, 13-5, in Florida State League baseball at nippy Joker Marchant Stadium on Tuesday night.

    The last time an opponent walked that many Flying Tigers in a game was August 15, 2008, when Ft. Myers pitchers walked 13 in a 9-0 Lakeland win.

    The Flying Tigers also rapped out 17 hits against the Cubs, including five doubles and two home runs. All that offense provided Kevin Eichhorn (1-0) with his first win. The 22-year-old California right-hander allowed the Cubs nine hits and three runs in 6 1/3 innings.

    James Robbins homered twice and singled for Lakeland, while Nick Castellanos padded his league-leading .403 average with three singles and three RBIs. Castellanos has nine hits in his past 17 at-bats.

    Avisail Garcia doubled and singled to improve his average to .361, second in the FSL only to Castellanos. Tyler Collins doubled twice, singled, and drove in a pair and is now hitting .344.

    LAKELAND | Wade Gaynor powered Lakeland's potent offense with a three-run homer and an RBI double as the Flying Tigers cooled off division-leading Dunedin, 9-6, in FSL baseball on Thursday night.

    Lakeland (9-9) won for the fourth time in the last six games, while the Blue Jays (16-4) lost for only the fourth time in the first 20 games of the 2012 season. Dunedin already holds a six-game lead over Lakeland and Tampa in the North Division.
    Gaynor was one of five Flying Tigers who enjoyed productive nights at the plate. James McCann singled four times, scored twice and drove in a run. Avisail Garcia tripled in two runs, singled twice, and scored twice. Tyler Collins doubled, singled twice, and scored twice, and Hernan Perez singled twice, drove in a pair and scored a run.
    Lakeland used a 16-hit attack to increase its league-leading team batting average to .278. Garcia (.391) used his 3-for-4 night to pass Nick Castellanos (.386) as the FSL's top hitter. Castellanos went 1-for-4 with a single and has now hit safely in 17 of the Flying Tigers' first 18 games.
    Lakeland and Dunedin will close out their three-game series tonight at 7:11 at Marchant Stadium. Left-hander Alex Burgos (1-3, 4.43) is expected to oppose Blue Jays' right-hander John Stilson (0-0, 1.42).
    The first 750 fans 14-years-old and younger will receive a free Detroit Tigers rope necklace. Lawton Chiles Middle Academy is selling tickets to the game as a spirit-night fundraiser.

    LAKELAND | The Lakeland Flying Tigers captured an important early-season showdown with Dunedin, Friday night, defeating the Blue Jays 6-4 to hand Dunedin its first series loss.

    A Lawton Chiles Middle Academy Spirit Night crowd of 1,534 saw Nick Castellanos and Victor Larez lead the Flying Tigers (10-9) back from an early 4-1 deficit against the team with the best record in the FSL (16-5).
    Castellanos doubled in Luis Castillo in the third to start the rally, doubled and scored the go-ahead run on a double by Tyler Collins in the seventh, and singled in an insurance run in the eighth.
    Castellanos' four-hit night upped his batting average to .413 and vaulted him ahead of teammates Avisail Garcia (384) and Collins (356) at the top of FSL batting statistics. Not surprisingly, Lakeland leads the league with a .280 team average and has belted 22 doubles in the past eight games.
    "I hit only .179 in April last year so it is great to get off to a fast start," said Castellanos, who was Detroit's Minor League Player of the Year at West Michigan in 2011.
    As impressive as Lakeland's hitting was Friday, the relief outing turned in by Larez (1-0) was an even bigger factor in the win. The 24-year-old Venezuelean right-hander tossed four innings of two-hit ball, striking out six and walking none.
    "Victor threw all three of his pitches for strikes, stayed within himself and tried not to do too much," Lakeland pitching coach Mike Maroth said. Larez threw 33 of his 46 pitches for strikes and faced the minimum 12 men in his appearance

    Goss: Tigers prospect Stroud joining Lakeland

    A late start, for a good reason.

    While most of our local professional baseball players are well into their 2012 season, right-handed pitcher Brian Stroud (Providence), whom the Detroit Tigers drafted last summer out of Western Michigan University, is about to begin his.
    Stroud has been in extended spring training at the Tigers’ base in Lakeland, Fla. He received word Friday that he’ll be joining the Lakeland Flying Tigers of the A-Advanced Florida State League.
    “They put me in extended spring training and switched a lot of my mechanics,” Stroud explained. “I feel really, really good about it. I had two starts here and didn’t give up a hit in seven innings.”
    Stroud said if he had stayed longer in extended spring training, he would have been sent to Connecticut in the short-season New York-Penn League, which begins play in June.
    “But this is good,” he said. “I’m excited about playing at Lakeland, whether I start or relieve. A lot of the Tigers’ big prospects are there.”
    Stroud said the other local pitcher who had been in the Detroit organization, Trevor Feeney (Joliet Catholic), was released during spring training.
    Other area pitchers in pro ball are finding varying degrees of success in the first month of the season.

    LAKELAND | Wade Gaynor drove in three runs with a pair of singles and Hernan Perez belted his first home run as Lakeland defeated Daytona 6-4 at Joker Marchant Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

    A Youth Baseball Day crowd of 2,051, the largest of the season, saw the Flying Tigers erase an early 1-0 deficit with three runs in the fourth.
    Nick Castellanos started the rally with a triple to left center, his second hit of the game. Tyler Collins immediately plated Castellanos with a sacrifice fly and Avisail Garcia singled and scored on Gaynor's first single.
    Castellanos leads the FSL with a .398 average, Garcia (.395) is second, and Collins (.342) is third. Castellanos also leads the league in hits (33), doubles (8), and slugging percentage (.554).
    James Robbins also scored two runs for the Flying Tigers, while Perez's solo homer in the eighth provided an insurance run.
    Kevin Eichhorn (2-1) went the first eight, surrendering four runs on eight hits. Bruce Rondon earned his team-leading third save by tossing a scoreless ninth.
    The Flying Tigers (11-10) and Cubs (7-16) will play again at Marchant at 10:30 a.m. today in the first of two Education Day Games.
    Left-hander Brian Flynn (3-1, 2.59) is expected to oppose Daytona southpaw Frank Del Valle (1-0, 6.00).

    LAKELAND | The Flying Tigers taught 1,859 area youngsters to never give up as they roared back from a 5-1 deficit to defeat Daytona 8-6 on Education Day at Joker Marchant Stadium Monday.

    Luis Castillo and Dixon Machado capped the comeback with consecutive two-run eighth-inning singles against Daytona reliever Tony Zych, who entered the game with the bases loaded, one man out, and his team ahead, 6-4.
    Lakeland reliever Matt Little (2-2) earned the win, while Eduardo Figueroa (2-2) took the loss.
    The Cubs opened the game by bunching together five singles to score three times in the first. The visitors added single runs in the second and fourth. All that offense came at the expense of Lakeland ace Brian Flynn, who suffered his second sub-par outing after a 3-0 start.
    The Flying Tigers began chipping away in the first when Dixon Machado doubled and Tyler Collins tripled. Avisail Garcia belted a solo home run in the fourth, and Lakeland added two in the sixth when Nick Castellanos and Garcia singled, James Robbins doubled, and Hernan Perez lofted a sacrifice fly.
    Garcia's 2-for-4 day elevated his batting average to a league-leading .400, vaulting him ahead of Castellanos, who is second at .398 after going 2-for-5 against the Cubs.
    Lakeland (12-10) will now hit the road for three games in Dunedin against the North Division-leading Blue Jays (18-5).

    Error in 11th dooms Miracle | The News-Press | news-press.com

    Avisail Garcia’s single in the 11th inning was turned into an error that allowed Tyler Collins to score the game-winning run for the Lakeland Flying Tigers as they edged the Fort Myers Miracle 4-3 on Saturday.
    Lakeland’s 11th inning rally started when Collins drew a walk from Miracle reliever Edgar Ibarra. Garcia followed with what appeared to be an innocent single to left-center, but Daniel Ortiz misplayed the ball and Collins was able to score all the way from first.
    Ibarra took a tough loss after pitching four innings and striking out five. Matt Crouse tossed a perfect inning for Lakeland for the win.
    Miracle starter Adrian Salcedo scattered four hits and gave up two hits in five innings.

    Minors: Miracle set season high in hits and runs, win 13-3

    The Fort Myers Miracle bashed out a season-high 18 hits and scored a season-high 13 runs in a 13-3 win over the Lakeland Flying Tigers on Sunday afternoon at Hammond Stadium.
    Leadoff hitter Daniel Santana led the way by going 5 for 5 with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored. Anderson Hidalgo collected three hits and three RBIs.
    Levi Michael, Josmil Pinto and Jairo Perez all had two-hit games for the Miracle. Every player in the Fort Myers' lineup had a hit.

    LAKELAND | Highly-touted right-hander Jacob Turner turned in his best outing this season as Lakeland thumped Palm Beach 5-1 at Joker Marchant Stadium on Tuesday night.

    Detroit's first pick in the 2009 draft, Turner (1-2, 1.66 ERA) shut down the Cardinals for seven scoreless innings, allowing four hits, striking out eight, and walking none.
    Avisail Garcia gave Turner all the run support he needed by belting his team-leading fourth home run with two teammates aboard in the third. Garcia also singled twice to raise his batting average to .336, fourth in the FSL and second on the team to Nick Castellanos (.415).
    Garcia's big blow followed a two-run uprising in the second, when Tyler Collins, Garcia, James Robbins, and Hernan Perez all singled off Palm Beach ace Seth Maness.
    Maness took the mound with a 3-0 record and 1.32 ERA but gave up nine hits and five runs in six innings against the FSL's top-hitting team.
    Lakeland reliever Tyler Clark earned his first save by retiring all four men he faced. Clark got Alan Ahmady to fly out to center with the bases loaded to end the eighth, and put down the Cardinals in order in the ninth.

    LAKELAND | The Palm Beach Cardinals raced out to an early lead then held off repeated Lakeland rallies and defeated the Flying Tigers, 5-3, at Joker Marchant Stadium on Wednesday morning.

    An Education Day crowd of 3,490, the largest of the season, saw Palm Beach score three times in the second and once more in the third and fourth innings to go up, 5-1.
    Alan Ahmady, Nicholas Longmire, and Niko Vasquez each doubled to spark the Cardinals' 11-hit attack. Nine of those hits and all five runs (four earned) came against Lakeland starter Kevin Eichhorn (3-2), whose teammates almost bailed him out.
    Second baseman Hernan Perez homered in the second and singled in his next three at-bats but was stranded on the bases each time.
    The Flying Tigers did manage to score twice in the sixth when Marcus Lemon was hit by a pitch, Nick Castellanos singled, and Tyler Collins tripled.
    Lakeland put runners on base in four of the last five innings but scored only those two sixth-inning runs. Palm Beach reliever Dean Kiekhefer earned his team-leading third save by retiring Wade Gardner and Luis Sanz with the tying runs aboard in the ninth.
    Cardinals' right-hander Richard Castillo (2-3), the only pitcher in the FSL with two complete games, earned the win with seven innings of six-hit ball, walking none and striking out three.
    Lakeland and Palm Beach will play the third game in the series tonight at 6:30 at Marchant Stadium when Flying Tigers' southpaw Brian Flynn (3-1, 3.63) will try to return to his winning ways.
    Flynn allowed a total of two earned runs in winning his first three starts, but has been roughed up for 12 earned runs over his last three appearances

    TAMPA | The Lakeland Flying Tigers used some clutch hitting and a bit of speed to win another game against the Tampa Yankees.

    James McCann's two-run, two-out single in the top of the eighth scored Avisail Garcia and Hernan Perez with the winning runs in a 5-3 Flying Tigers victory on Tuesday night.
    Garcia began the inning with a walk and then stole second. He advanced to third on an infield single by Perez, who just beat the throw to first. Tampa manager Luis Sojo argued the call and was ejected.
    Perez then stole second before McCann's heroics.
    Lakeland took an early lead thanks to a Nick Castellanos RBI single. He later scored on an error.
    Ryan Woolley got the win, his first of the year, and Bruce Rondon picked up his eighth save.
