Lansing Lugnuts 15-14/2.5 GB/T-2nd

W 18-1

More from Toronto Blue Jays News

The Lugnuts had a franchise day as they set a new team record for most hits in a game with 23, they equalled the team record for most lopsided win with 17 runs, and finally they set a season high mark for most runs with 18. This coming from a team that not longer has MWL All-Stars Anthony Alford, and Rowdy Tellez on the roster and hasn’t had Ryan McBroom, the MWL leader in batting average, OPS, RBI, and 2B, in the lineup since the 23rd of July.

Let’s start on the mound. Shane Dawson (12-4, 2.85 ERA), fresh off his gold medal win at the Pan Am Games, continued his dominance over the MWL with his league leading 12th win. Shane struck out 10, walked one, allowed 2 hits over 6 shutout innings. Phil Kish allowed one hit, walked one and struck out 2 in his 2 innings of work. Carlos Ramirez allowed the Dayton Dragons only run (a home run) in his only inning. 

The negative first, D.J. Davis was the only Lugnut not to register a hit, as he collected a hat trick with 3 K’s, a walk and an RBI. Jason Leblebijian, in for Ryan McBroom, went 5-for-6 with a home run, two doubles and 6 RBI. Chris Carlson went 4-for-6 with a double, a home run, 4 runs, and 2 RBI. Alex Maldonado (3-4, 3R), Dawel Lugo (3-6, 2R, 2B), Boomer Collins (2-5, 2R, 3B, 3RBI), David Harris (3-6, 2R, 2B, HR, 4 RBI), and Juan Kelly (2-4, R) all had multi-hit games. Christian Vazquez made his only hit count, hitting a triple and driving in 2 RBI.

Vancouver Canadians 15-20/6.GB/4th place

Postponed due to rain

Bluefield Blue Jays 14-16/4.5GB/4th place


Angel Perdomo (3-1, 2.12 ERA) allowed 4 runs (one earned) on 4 hits, walked and struck out one over 6 innings for his third win. Geno Encina collected his first save with 3 innings of one hit, one run (unearned), one stike out relief.

Rodrigo Orozco has provided the spark for the Bluefield offence this year, but was one of two hitless players in this laugher. Fortunately for Bluefield, 6 players with multi-hit games and three home runs (Christian Williams, Deiferson Barreto, and Juan Tejada), 5 doubles (Christian Williams, Yeltsin Gudino, and Gabriel Clark x3, ), and a triple (Dean Bell) were pounded out. Barreto had 4 RBI, Williams and Tejada chipped in with 3 a piece, everyone but Dave Pepe (1-3, R) had one RBI. Andres Sotillo was 0-1 with a run, a RBI, 3 BB, and a K….I love a guy who doesn’t let the game change his approach.

UP Next: Juliandry Higuera (3-0, 1.05 ERA) vs Danville’s Patrick Weigel (0-0 3.05 ERA)

Noberto Obeso (1-4) was plated 3 times.

Juan Nunez lasted 2.2 innings, allowing 4 runs. Wilmin Lara didn’t fair much better in his 2.1 innings, allowing 2 run while striking out 4.
