Since being sent down to Class AAA Rochester to make room for the return of Ricky Nolasco, Tommy Milone has been dominant for the Twins. On Wednesday, he gave up three hits, struck out 12 and didn't walk anyone as the Red Wings defeated Toledo 1-0.

Milone, sent down after four starts with the Twins, hasn't given up a run in 14 1/3 innings with Rochester.

Afterward, Milone told Kevin Oklobzeja of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle: "Obviously it was a little frustrating (to be sent to Triple-A), but it's one of those things where it's not anything I can control  They wanted me to come down here and work on some things and I have to accept it. Me complaining or getting upset is not going to do anything but hurt me, so I have to come down here and do my job and get guys out."

Oklobzeja points out that Toledo had a line-up filled with left-handed batters, which may have helped Milone. You can read his full story here. And here's the boxscore from Milone's outing.

At Class AA  Chattanooga,top prospect Jose Berrios pitched two-hitter with eight strikeouts and two walks as the Lookouts defeated Birmingham 3-0. He threw 113 pitches in the complete game.

Berrios, who was taken in the first round of the 2012 draft, has a 4-1 record and 2.60 for Chattanooga. The boxscore from Wednesday's game is here.
