Minor Issues: Teams Split Double Headers and do some MashingThe Herd lost to the mighty Iron Pigs as John Halama had a very weird line.. 7 innings, but 11 hits and a walk that amounted to 7 runs. Brad Snyder went 1-4 with two RBI and Chris Gimenez went 3-4. Aaron Laffey goes tonight in his second start for Buffalo.
Akron not only bashed the hell out of Trenton in the second game of a double header, they shut them out. Stephen Head continues to rip, going 2-4 with two RBI but the big night belonged to Mr. 3 Ryan Goleski.. On 8-8-08, Goleski went 3-3 with 3 runs and 3 RBI. He hit two home runs and walked once. Brandon Pinckney has a three run homer. JD Martin, Reid Santos, Tony Sipp and Scott Roehl combined for a four hitter with just one walk. Akron probably forgot they played game one. Kevin Dixon went six strong and Bronson Sardinha homered in the loss.
Another bashing happened thanks to the K-Tribe. Carloton Smith went 5 strong, giving up just 2 hits and no runs. Carlos Santana scored two runs, Niuman Romero knocked in two, and Carlos Rivero went 3-4 with three runs knocked in.
Lake County won the first game in exciting fashion. Mark Thompson hit a sac fly in the bottom of the tenth to give the Captains a win and his third RBI of the night. Ron Rivas went 4-5 with two runs scored and an RBI. Joanniel Montero got pounded for 7 runs in 2 plus innings as the Captains lost the second game.
CORD PHELPS!! He went 2-4 but those Grapes won again.
