Beach Bums Drop Pitchers Duel to Crushers
AVON, OH - The Traverse City Beach Bums(34-42) and Lake Erie Crushers(41-36) went scoreless in the first five innings but the Crushers got that extra hit to take tonight's middle game of this weekend's series by a final score of 2-1.
Dane Hutcheon led off the sixth with a single into right field then moved to third on a Joel McKeithan double. Cody Lenahan drove them both home with a double for a 2-0 Lake Erie lead. With one out in the seventh, Will Kengor reached on an error then Steve Lohr single into center, moving Kengor to second. Alexis Rivera then slammed a double into right, scoring Kengor, pulling Traverse City within one. Later in the inning, Lohr was thrown out at the plate trying to score on a wild pitch and the Bums wouldn't threaten again.
Jake Repavich earned the win for Lake Erie, going six and a third innings. He allowed an unearned run on three hits and a walk while striking out eight. He's now 1-1. Tyler Thornton had a solid debut for the Beach Bums, working into the sixth inning, but he falls to 0-1. He allowed one run on two hits and walked three. Logan Lombana allowed a two out walk in the ninth but struck out one on the way to his eighth save of the season.
