Lansing Lugnuts @ South Bend Cubs (Win 3-2)

What a night for pitchers in South Bend.  A low scoring affair between the Lugnuts and Cubs led to bonus baseball Wednesday.  Starlyn Suriel got the Lugnuts off on the right foot as he lead the way through 7 innings.  He would allow 8 hits and walk 2 but limited the damage to just 2 earned runs.  Carlos Ramirez looked impressive as he pitched the remaining 3 innings and picked up the win.  His solid performance allowed the Lugnuts to hold off the Cubs to eventually complete the win.

Game winning home runs in the 10th are just one of the things we love about baseball.  Chris Carlson picked a great time to hit his 2nd homer of the season as he popped one over the left field wall Wednesday in the 10th.   The first 2 Lugnut runs came from RBI singles by Boomer Collins and Michael De La Cruz.  De La Cruz would end up with a 3-4 night.  The Lugnuts pitched their way to victory and had just enough timely hitting to squeak out the win Wednesday.

Line of the night

Starlyn Suriel 7 IP, 8 Hits, 2 Run, 2 Walk, 4 K’s
