Lemurs Keep Coming, Smash AirHogs

August 11, 2012 - American Association (AA) - Grand Prairie AirHogs News Release

LAREDO, Texas - A day after getting 15 hits, the Laredo Lemurs pounded out 14 hits against the Grand Prairie AirHogs, and for the second night in a row, they won, beating the AirHogs 13-5 at Uni-Trade Stadium on Saturday.

Laredo (36-43) scored two runs in the first on Nick DeBarr (12-5), getting an RBI double from John Allen and a groundout from Javier Brito. Grand Prairie (44-36) responded with a two-out rally in the second, on singles from Scott Clement and Alberto Espinosa, and a three-run home run from Kenny Held.

But the AirHogs' lead was short-lived, as the Lemurs got all three runs back in the bottom of the second to take the lead for good. A hit batter, walk and sacrifice bunt started things, and Stephen Douglas's two-run double, a groundout and a wild pitch made it 5-3.

Laredo got two more in the fourth and one in the fifth, before Trent Lockwood pulled the AirHogs to within 8-5 with a two-run home run against Ryan Sasaki (4-2).

But the AirHogs bullpen gave up five runs in the next two innings, and Laredo's held the AirHogs to no runs in 3 2/3 as the Lemurs beat the AirHogs for the fifth time in their last six meetings.
