Crushers offense explodes to win series over Southern Illinois

Crushers beat the Miners 7-6 in 9 innings

Box Link: http://baseball.pointstreak.com/boxscoretext.html?gameid=485300

AVON, Ohio -- The Lake Erie Crushers, presented by Mercy Health, beat the Southern Illinois Miners at Sprenger Healthcare Stadium on Thursday afternoon, by a score of 7-6 to win the three-game series.

The win for the Crushers (4-2) seals their second consecutive series win, while the Miners (2-4) lose their second consecutive series to start the Summer.

Jared Koenig (1-0) pitched well in his first start of the season to earn the victory. Koenig threw 5.0 innings and gave up three un-earned runs off of three hits, walked three and struck out seven Southern Illinois batters. Chase Adkins (0-1) is credited with the loss after he gave up five earned runs off of seven hits, walked two and struck out four over 4.0 innings of work.

The Lake Erie Crushers offense started hot and never seemed to cool down throughout the game. In the bottom of the first inning Aaron Hill smacked his first homerun of the season to give the Crushers an early 1-0 lead. In the bottom of the fourth, the Crushers added three more runs to make it 4-0. Emmanuel Marrero continued his hot start to the season as he hit a two RBI double to extend the Crushers lead in that fourth inning. In the same inning, Bodie Bryan jumped in on the fun with an RBI single of his own to score Marrero.

It was not until the top of the fifth inning when the Miners put up their first run of the game. Andy Cosgrove led off the inning with a double. Anthony Brocato would then reach on a throwing error committed by Marrero. Because of the throwing error, that allowed Cosgrove to score the un-earned run and make the score 4-1. Two batters later, Gianfranco Wawoe hit a two-run homerun for his first homerun of the summer and to cut the lead to 4-3. But the Crushers offense answered immediately with three runs of their own in the bottom of the fifth to make the score 7-3. The Miners put up one run in the top of the sixth courtesy of the solo homerun from Stephen Lohr. Entering the top of the ninth the Crushers had a 7-4 lead but would make it interesting as Seth Lucio (2) walked the first three batters he faced. Lucio would allow two runs to score off of a past ball and a wild pitch. But the late game push was not enough for the Miners as Lucio would go on to earn his second save of the Summer by forcing Brett Siddall to pop out with the tying run on base.

The Crushers offense was on fire today. Lake Erie scored seven runs off of 11 hits and was led by Marrero. Marrero ended the day going 2-4 with one run scored and four RBI. Eight out of the nine Crushers batters reach base safely in today's contest and seven out of the nine recorded at least one hit. Dale Burdick finished the day 2-4 with a run scored, Zach Racusin went 2-5 with two runs scored, and Bodie Bryan hit 2-3 with two RBI in the nine hole.

Lake Erie's middle relief efforts were rock solid again. Jake Repavich and Kent Hasler combined to throw 3.0 innings only giving up one earned run, two hits, and struck out five Southern Illinois batters to slow down the Miners offense.

The Crushers will start a the three-game series with the Washington Wild Things at Consol Energy Park in Washington, PA on Friday night. Right-hander Greyfer Eregua will take the mound for the Crushers. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM.

Errors cost Crushers

Crushers lose to the Miners 5-3 in 9 innings

Box Link: http://baseball.pointstreak.com/boxscoretext.html?gameid=485293

AVON, Ohio -- The Lake Erie Crushers, presented by Mercy Health, lost the second game of the three-game series with the Southern Illinois Miners at Sprenger Healthcare Stadium on Wednesday afternoon, by a score of 5-3.

The loss for the Crushers (3-2) was their second of the season, while the Miners (2-3) bounce back from the game one loss on Tuesday afternoon.

Alex Romero was on the bump for the Crushers for his second start of the season. In his second start, Romero threw 7.0 innings giving up two earned runs off of four hits, while walking two and striking out seven Southern Illinois batters. Chase Cunningham was the starter for the Miners and threw 7.0 innings giving up three earned runs off of six hits, while walking two and striking out five Crushers batters.

These two teams traded shots like two prized fighters throughout the entire game. Southern Illinois jumped out to an early 1-0 lead after a one-out homerun from Brett Siddall in the top of the first inning. The Crushers answered back in the bottom of the second with two runs of their own. The first run came off the bat of Emmanuel Marrero who launched a two-out homerun over the right field fence. Sebastian Diaz followed Marrero's homerun with a double of his own and was then hit in by an RBI single from Bryan De La Rosa. The Miners answered with a run of their own in the top of the fourth inning courtesy of a two-out RBI single from Andy Cosgrove. Then the Crushers regained the lead 3-2 in the bottom of the sixth inning with an RBI single from Dale Burdick. But that lead would not last long as with one out in the top of the seventh Anthony Brocato tied the game with one swing as he sent a homerun over the right-centerfield fence. From there the game was tied until the ninth inning. In the top of the ninth inning, an untimely error is what cost the Crushers the game. Chris Iriart lead off the inning by reaching on an error committed by Sebastian Diaz in right field. Brocato then plated Iriart with an RBI single that was followed by an RBI sac fly off the bat of Joe Duncan to add an insurance run and make the score 5-3.

The Crushers made it an interesting game in the bottom of the ninth. Kelvin Rodriguez came into pitch for Southern Illinois and struck out the first batter he faced, but then hit Steven Kraft with a pitch. Moments later Marrero would reach off a fielder's choice, but during the play third baseman Stephen Lohr committed a throwing error when trying to turn the double play. Lohr's throw went over Gianfranco Wawoe's head and into right field resulting in Kraft making it all the way to third. Rodriguez would then walk Diaz to have the bases loaded. Miners replaced Rodriguez with Nick Duron (1) who would get De La Rosa to hit a ground ball resulting in Kraft being thrown out at home. Duron then struck out Bodie Bryan looking to end the game, notched his first save of the season, and sealed the victory for Southern Illinois.

Gabe Genter (1-0) was credited with the save after throwing a scoreless bottom of the eighth inning striking out two of the three batters he faced. Tanner Thomas (1-1) earned the loss after giving up one run over 1.1 innings of work.

The Crushers will continue the three-game series with the Southern Illinois Miners at Sprenger Healthcare Stadium on Thursday morning. Right-hander Jared Koenig will take the mound for the Crushers and the Miners will counter with righty Chase Adkins. The first pitch is scheduled for 11:05 AM.

Extra Effort

Crushers beat Thunderbolts 1-0 in 12 innings

AVON, Ohio -- The Lake Erie Crushers, presented by Mercy Health, took the rubber match of a three game weekend series at Sprenger Healthcare Stadium on Sunday afternoon, winning on a wild pitch in a 1-0, 12-inning victory over the Windy City Thunderbolts.

The win for the Crushers (2-1) was their sixth in their last seven games at home dating back to last season, while the Thunderbolts (1-3) have now dropped three of their first four games to start the season.

The pitching was terrific on both sides throughout the game. As a result, there weren't many chances to score. Lake Erie starting pitcher Pat Ledet, a former Windy City Thunderbolt, tossed six scoreless innings and allowed just two hits while striking out five. Tyler Thornton of Windy City threw seven scoreless innings and struck out seven while also allowing only two hits.

Lake Erie's best chance to score came in the seventh inning. Jake Vieth walked with one out before making his way to third on Zach Racusin's double to left. However, Thornton retired the next two batters to end the threat, getting Emmanuel Marrero to fly out to center and Doug Trimble to groundout to third.

In the 11th inning the International Rule came into play, where the batter who made the last out in the previous inning, begins the next inning on second base. Seth Lucio allowed Randy Perez on a bunt base hit, which put Joe Becht on third. Lucio then struck out Brynn Martinez, before getting David Oppenheim to ground into an inning ending 5-4-3 double play.

The Crushers went quietly in the bottom of the 11th, before terrific pitching and defense took center stage in the top of the 12th. Oppenheim began the inning on second base. Shane Carrier hit a fly ball to center which was caught by Bodie Bryan. Oppenheim tried to tag-up from second, but was thrown out at third by Bryan. Dash Winningham followed with a sharp line drive on the left side of the infield, but third baseman Sebastian Diaz made a great diving catch on it to end the inning.

Aaron Hill started the bottom of the 12th inning on second base. Diaz began the inning with a bunt base hit to put Hill on third. Dale Burdick was intentionally walked to load the bases for Jake Vieth. Chris Washington's (0-1) 1-0 pitch to Vieth bounced by catcher Tyler Alamo, and the wild pitch scored Hill from third to end the game.

Tanner Thomas (1-0) scored the victory for the Crushers, needing only four pitches to record three outs in the 12th inning for his first win of the year. Augie Gallardo and Kent Hasler each tossed two innings of scoreless relief as well. Washington took the loss after surrendering the unearned run in the 12th inning.

The Crushers are off on Monday but will begin a three game series with the Southern Illinois Miners at Sprenger Healthcare Stadium on Tuesday morning. Right-hander Dylan Mouzakes will take the mound for the Crushers and the Miners will counter with righty Ryan McAuliffe. The first pitch is scheduled for 11:05 AM.

AVON, Ohio -- The Lake Erie Crushers, presented by Mercy Health, took the rubber match of a three game weekend series at Sprenger Healthcare Stadium on Sunday afternoon, winning on a wild pitch in a 1-0, 12-inning victory over the Windy City Thunderbolts.

The win for the Crushers (2-1) was their sixth in their last seven games at home dating back to last season, while the Thunderbolts (1-3) have now dropped three of their first four games to start the season.

The pitching was terrific on both sides throughout the game. As a result, there weren't many chances to score. Lake Erie starting pitcher Pat Ledet, a former Windy City Thunderbolt, tossed six scoreless innings and allowed just two hits while striking out five. Tyler Thornton of Windy City threw seven scoreless innings and struck out seven while also allowing only two hits.

Lake Erie's best chance to score came in the seventh inning. Jake Vieth walked with one out before making his way to third on Zach Racusin's double to left. However, Thornton retired the next two batters to end the threat, getting Emmanuel Marrero to fly out to center and Doug Trimble to groundout to third.

In the 11th inning the International Rule came into play, where the batter who made the last out in the previous inning, begins the next inning on second base. Seth Lucio allowed Randy Perez on a bunt base hit, which put Joe Becht on third. Lucio then struck out Brynn Martinez, before getting David Oppenheim to ground into an inning ending 5-4-3 double play.

The Crushers went quietly in the bottom of the 11th, before terrific pitching and defense took center stage in the top of the 12th. Oppenheim began the inning on second base. Shane Carrier hit a fly ball to center which was caught by Bodie Bryan. Oppenheim tried to tag-up from second, but was thrown out at third by Bryan. Dash Winningham followed with a sharp line drive on the left side of the infield, but third baseman Sebastian Diaz made a great diving catch on it to end the inning.

Aaron Hill started the bottom of the 12th inning on second base. Diaz began the inning with a bunt base hit to put Hill on third. Dale Burdick was intentionally walked to load the bases for Jake Vieth. Chris Washington's (0-1) 1-0 pitch to Vieth bounced by catcher Tyler Alamo, and the wild pitch scored Hill from third to end the game.

Tanner Thomas (1-0) scored the victory for the Crushers, needing only four pitches to record three outs in the 12th inning for his first win of the year. Augie Gallardo and Kent Hasler each tossed two innings of scoreless relief as well. Washington took the loss after surrendering the unearned run in the 12th inning.

The Crushers are off on Monday but will begin a three game series with the Southern Illinois Miners at Sprenger Healthcare Stadium on Tuesday morning. Right-hander Dylan Mouzakes will take the mound for the Crushers and the Miners will counter with righty Ryan McAuliffe. The first pitch is scheduled for 11:05 AM.
