Burgos Throws Gem in LFT Win (4/15 Recaps)

Starting pitching was lackluster for Lakeland on Monday but the bullpen was impressive, led by Alex Burgos' gem of a performance against Brevard County in a 6-3 win. Jason King was also impressive from an offensive standpoint highlighted by a two-run home run. Erie failed to hold on to a win against Bowie, while Toledo lost a lead late to fall to Indianapolis.
