First off, welcome to Matt Wallace. We've already been talking about some projects for the offseason and while nothing's definitive, we should be rolling out some pretty sweet minor league coverage. For now though, it's recap time.
LJ Gagnier gave up four runs (two earned) on six hits (one a homer) with two walks and seven strikeouts in 5.1 innings. Robbie Weinhardt struck out two and walked one in his two innings of work. Scott Sizemore was 2-4 with two walks while Robizon Diaz was 3-5 and a homer short of the cycle.
Newly promoted control artist Adam Wilk went 8 innings, giving up one hit and one walk with three strikeouts. Kyle Peter was 2-3 with a double.
This was supposed to be a doubleheader (to make up for a suspended game yesterday), but the second game was suspended. Go figure. Anyways, Luke Sorensen allowed two hits and two walks over 6 innings of shutout baseball with five strikeouts. Jared Gayhart pitched an inning in relief, striking out two. Daniel Fields was 1-2 with a walk and a homer.
Trevor Feeney went 7 innings, allowing a mere two earned runs to score. Unfortunately, six total runs scored in the game, meaning that four went uncharged to Feeney. Shame, because he only allowed eight hits and struck out four in his start. And had he held the Lugnuts to two runs, the offense would have run roughshod over Lansing. Today the attack was led by Wade Gaynor (2-5, 2B), Jamie Johnson (2-4, 2B, BB), Tony Plagman (1-4, 3B) and Rob Brantly (2-3, BB).
Brennan Smith went 5 shutout innings, allowing three hits with two walks along with two strikeouts. Josh Ashenbrenner was 2-3 with a double while Ryan Enos was 2-5 with a double.
