Lansing Wins with Strong Pitching, Timely Hitting
After giving up two runs in the top of the third inning, it appeared that Lansing would again struggle to score runs, but a four run fifth inning changed all of that. Ryan Klosterman led off the bottom of the fifth inning with a bunt single. Following a single by Aaron Mathews and Corrente advancing to first after being hit on a pitch, Klosterman plated the first run on an error by Peoria third baseman Aaron Smith off of the bat of Eugenio Velez. Jason Armstrong then stepped to the plate and broke the game open on a 3 RBI double to left center field. The Lugnuts would later plate three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to complete the scoring on the night.
Jordy Templet came on in relief of Wideman in the sixth inning and pitched three solid innings of relief as he held the potent Chiefs offense scoreless on three hits, no walks and one strike out. Daryl Harang then came out of the bullpen in the ninth inning making his first appearance in over a month as he was activated off of the disabled list. It appeared that the stint on the disabled list did not affect Harang as he pitched a flawless 1-2-3 inning to close out the game.
"It felt good to get out there an throw tonight. I've thrown a few sides. My arm feels really good and it was a good outing." Harang stated about his appearance.
A.J. Wideman improves to 6-6 on the year as he went five innings, giving up 2 earned runs on six hits while walking one and striking out five. Peoria Chief pitcher Chris Shaver picks up the loss and falls to 3-7 on the season.
