MiLB Recap – Lugnuts come back

2 of 3

Mandatory Credit:

Lansing Lugnuts vs South Bend Cubs (Win 6-4)

More from Toronto Blue Jays Prospects

Pitching for both sides had issues in this game.  Jesus Tinoco worked hard through 6 innings and was able to grind out a quality start.  He did allow all 4 runs to the Cubs on 8 hits but was able to strike out 4.  Dusty Isaacs gets the win as he pitched the remaining 3 innings and and shut down the Cubs for the remainder.

On offense the Lugnuts strung enough consistency together that they were able to slowly take the win from the Cubs.  A couple 2 run innings mixed in with a pair of 1 run innings proved to be enough.  Both teams collected 11 hits in the game but the runs piled up in favor of the Lugnut attack.  Josh Almonte stole a pair of bases and scored twice.  Michael De La Cruz also stole a base and collected 2 hits with an RBI.  A well balanced offense won this game for the Lugnuts

Line of the game

Josh Almonte 1-3 with 2 runs scored, a double, and 2 stolen bases
