As storms bear down on the Great Plains, the Mud Hens’ bats provided the thunder, as Parker Meadows, Akil Baddoo, and Andre Lipcius all went deep to back starter Alex Faedo on Tuesday night.

Faedo, who in the middle of changing his arm slot back to the positions he had in college, had a decent first start. He surrendered a solo shot in the first, but settled in, allowing just a single and a walk, striking out three over three innings.

The Hens tied it up in the third when Zack Short hammered a double to center field to plate Jonathan Davis. Davis was on a again in the fifth when Brendon Davis, the infielding Davis to Jonathan’s outfield, doubled to left, making it 2-1. Akil Baddoo followed with a screaming line drive home run to right, and it was 4-1 Hens.

Brendan White followed Faedo with a pair of scoreless frames, and Kervin Castro gave them two more innings, though his wildness cost him a run in the sixth. But by then it was 7-2 Hens, as they’d continued to add on in the sixth.

Justyn-Henry Malloy walked with one out, and catcher Donny Sands singled, with both runners advancing on the defense. Jonathan Davis struck out. Brendon Davis walked to load the bases, and Baddoo sprayed a hot grounder down the third base line for a three run double. Akil was thrown out at third trying to stretch it, ending the inning.

Parker Meadows and Andre Lipcius each launched a solo shot in the seventh, and that was all she wrote for Omaha. Aneurys Zabala and Trevor Rosenthal closed it out, with the latter issuing a pair of walks in a non-save situation. He’s still some ways from a call-up, presumably.

We’ll note, as Tigers Minor League Report does below, that Meadows did his damage against lefties, much as he did in his final showpiece game in spring training. Good signs, friends.

Baddoo: 2-5, R, 5 RBI, HR, 2B

Meadows: 2-5, R, RBI, HR, 2B

Malloy: 2-2, R, 2 BB

Faedo: 3.0 IP, ER, 2 H, BB, 3 SO

Coming Up Next: LHP Zach Logue (1-0, 4.50 ERA) takes his second turn on Wednesday afternoon at 1:05 p.m. from Omaha. RHP Mike Mayers (0-0, 11.25 ERA) takes the ball for the Storm Chasers.
