Dunedin Wins Extra-Inning Slugfest
It took eleven innings, twenty-four hits and seventeen runs to decide the outcome, however, a leadoff homer by David Smith in the eleventh inning gave the Dunedin Blue Jays to 9-8 victory Friday night.
Smith was the star of the game going 2-5 with a run scored, a homer three RBI, however Manuel Mayorson has a solid night also driving two doubles, a single, scoring a run, and driving in two runs. Ryan Roberts also had a multi-hit game with two singles, scoring two runs and driving in a run of his own. Adam Lind added a two-run double and come around to score for his only hit of the game.
Davis Romero started the game and allowed three runs on seven hits, while walking two and striking out six in his six innings of work. Tracy Thorpe was ineffective in relief allowing a hit and three walks all leading to a run while retiring just one batter. Danny Core followed, however, did not have any better success allowing two runs on two hits in his 2/3 innings of work. Milton Travarez was charged with his second blown save of the season as he allowed a run in the ninth inning with Dunedin leading by one. Bradley Mumma allowed a run in the tenth inning on two hits. Russell Savickas picked up the victory pitching a scoreless eleventh inning, despite allowing a hit and walking two batters. Savickas was called up from Pulaski earlier in the day.

Lugnuts Comeback, then Blow Game inNinth
Danny Hill allowed two unearned runs in the ninth inning of Friday's game as the Lansing Lugnuts suffered a heartbreaking 4-3 loss to the hands of West Michigan. Hill allowed consecutive singles to open the ninth inning, and then recorded the first out of the inning on a sacrifice bunt that advanced the runners to second and third. However, a fielding error by Chris Snavely during the next at bats allowed both runners to score and give West Michigan the 4-3 lead.
Lansing made a comeback of their own in the eighth inning as they trailed 2-1. Juan Peralta singled in David Hicks and then Curtis Thigpen singled in Peralta to give Lansing the 3-2 lead. Chris Snavely had the first run of the game when he hit a solo homer in the fifth inning to right field.
