The Mud Hens moved even at .500 with a 6-0 shutout victory over Indianapolis on Tuesday. Ruddy Lugo picked up the win, pitching five scoreless innings, scattering three hits and mixing in four walks. Casey Fien also tossed three innings of shutout relief. There were plenty of stars at the plate, specifically the top three hitters in the order. Will Rhymes led off and went 4-for-5 with three runs scored and an RBI, Brent Dlugach went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and an RBI, and Brennan Boesch provided some run producing power, falling a home run shy of the cycle while plating three.
Jon Kibler was strong again, but the SeaWolves fell once again, this time being shut out 2-0. Kibler went six innings, allowing just one run on seven hits while walking four and striking out three. Jay Voss allowed one unearned run in relief, but beyond that the pitching staff kept Binghamton in check. But the SeaWolves offense continued their slow start to the 2010 season, managing just three hits. Cesar Nicolas had one of those hits and also walked twice, but that was about it as far as highlights at the plate for the 'Wolves.
The Flying Tigers captured the lead with two runs in the eighth to claim a 3-2 victory over Brevard County on Tuesday. Luke Putkonen got a no-decision as the starter, giving up two runs on three hits in 4 2/3 innings. Putkonen battled his control though, walking four. Ben Guez was the hero at the plate, ripping the two run double in the eighth to give the club the lead and the eventual win. Rawley Bishop and Kody Kaiser were the two runs that scored, each had two hits for the game. Tyler Stohr tossed two perfect innings of relief to earn the win, while Lester Oliveros picked up his second save for pitching the ninth.
Jordan Lennerton singled home Hernan Perez in the bottom of the seventh to give the Whitecaps a 3-2 edge, and they'd hang onto that slim lead to pick up the victory. Trevor Feeney got the start and lasted seven innings, giving up two runs on five hits while striking out seven. Beyond Lennerton, three other 'Caps had multi-hit days, including Luis Salas, who had two hits and an RBI for the club.
