More from Toronto Blue Jays Prospects

On a night that pitching seemed non existent the Lugnuts fall just short of an impressive comeback.  Starting pitchers Clinton Hollon of the Lugnuts and Jared Miller of the Cougars both got tagged for 6 runs each.  This set the tone for the game.  Reliever Dusty Issacs would not fair much better as he gave up another 5 runs which included a solo homer to Joe Munoz.  The Lugnuts bullpen would finally lock in and not allow a run for the remaining 4.1 innings which gave the offense an opportunity to comeback.

The Lugnuts scored 7 runs through the first 4 innings but they were trailing 11-7 at that time.  To get the 7 runs the Lugnuts offense was clicking and kept them in contention the entire game.  The scoring started with an RBI double by Josh Almonte in the 2nd.  The Lugnuts would put up a 3 spot in the 3rd and 4th innings.  In the 3rd Ryan McBroom added to his MVP season as he knocked a 3 run homer over the left field wall.  In the 4th the Lugnuts scored on a wild pitch which was followed by an RBI triple off the bat of Christopher Carlson.  A second wild pitch would lead to Carlson scoring from 3rd.  Moving to the top of the 9th with the Lugnuts trailing by 4 the comeback would begin.  An infield single and a walk led off the inning and set the stage for McBroom.  He then laced a single into left for an RBI.  David Harris would then walk to load the bases which was followed by yet another walk to plate the 2nd run of the inning.  A sac fly would score McBroom to make the score 10-11.  A double play would end the game for the Cougars and seal the loss for the Lugnuts.

Line of the game
