Gwinnett Braves 8, Toledo Mudhens 6 (F/10)
A valiant comeback from a 5-0 deficit was for naught in Toledo last night, as Gwinnett plated a pair of runs against Guido Knudson to net the victory. Shane Greene put Toledo in the hole with a terrible outing that didn't make it out of the fourth inning, and Angel Nesbitt allowed two more to fan the flames. Alexi Casilla and Steven Moya both homered for Toledo, while Dixon Machado and Bryan Holaday chipped in three hits apiece.
Knudson (L, 1-2): 2.1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 SO

Casilla: 1-5, HR, 3 RBI
Machado: 3-5, R
Moya: 2-5, HR, 2B, 2 RBI

The Flying Tigers suffered a sweep at the hand of the Yankees in yesterday's doubleheader, with the second game being a makeup for a rainout in June. In the day game, Jairo Labourt was rocked for five runs on two home runs in five innings of work. The night only got worse from there, as the Flying Tigers managed just two singles in the nightcap. With the losses, Lakeland falls to 43-73 on the year with an abysmal .236 team batting average.
Up Next: Lakeland looks to turn things around in Tampa tonight at 7:00 p.m. EDT with Jonathan Maciel (4-8, 5.12) on the mound.
The West Michigan Whitecaps were out of action Monday night. They return tonight behind the arm of Ross Seaton (9-6, 3.76) at home against the Great Lakes Loons with first pitch slated for 7:00 p.m. EDT.
