Lansing Lugnuts vs Lake County Capitals (Loss 5-8)

More from Toronto Blue Jays Prospects

After the Lugnuts got off to a great start the Capitals came roaring back.  An errant pick off throw would lead to the down fall of the Lugnuts.  The throw by Jose Fernandez would lead to a 3 run inning for the Caps and they would close it out for a final of 8-5.  Conor Fisk had a decent start but would eventually allow 3 earned runs over his 5.2 innings of work.  Tim Mayza came on to pitch and would only record 1 out and allow 2 more runs before getting out of the inning.

The Lugnut offense kept them in the game but the pitching melt down would eventually be to much for their offense to over come.  Jason Leblebijian popped a 3 run homer in the 3rd inning and was his 6th on the season.  Alex Maldonado and Boomer Collins recorded RBI singles as well in the effort.

Line of the game

Jason Leblebijian 2-5 with a home runs, a run scored, and 3 RBI
