Lugnuts Streak Comes To An End
Southwest Michigan would then add a run in both the sixth and seventh innings increasing their lead to 4-0 over Lansing, however the Lugnuts were not going to go down with out a fight. After only being able to scrounge up two hits all day Lansing mounted a rally in the bottom of the ninth inning.
With one out, Chris Snavely stepped to the plate and singled on a 2-2 pitch. Eric Nielsen then walked and Charlie Anderson was hit-by-the-pitch to load the bases. One night after delivering a bases loaded triple, David Hicks then strolled to the plate, however he was unable to repeat the heroics of the night before as he was set down on strikes for the second out of the inning. Southwest Michigan would then bring in hard throwing right-hander Richard De Los Santos to face Ryan Klosterman. Klosterman was able to work a full count of De Los Santos and eventually was rewarded with an RBI with a bases loaded walk. Juan Peralta then came to the plate and promptly deliver a seeing eye single between third and short to make the score 4-2. Jason Armstrong then came off the bench to pinch hit for Lansing catcher David Corrente, but was unable to continue the rally as he popped out to right.
With the loss, Lansing falls to 28-34 on the second have and 65-66 overall. Southwest Michigan improves to 33-29 on the second half and 66-65 overall. Wideman took the loss for the Lugnuts and falls to 7-10 on the season.
