LumberKings pound Rays, 12-2
Clinton (Low A -- Midwest League)
Clinton 12 @ Southwest Michgan 2
The Brandon Boggs (.287 / .397 / .505 overall, .600 / .667 / .1.067 in July) show continued as the toolsy outfielder belted his sixth homer in a 4-5 outing that also included a double and a walk to drive in six runs in support of starter Ace Walker (4-8; 2.83) who finally got the run support he has long deserved.
Walker lasted six, blanking SW Michigan on one hit and three walks before turning it over to Kevin Altman who dealt two more scoreless frames before allowing two in the ninth.
Ian Gac (.235 / .287 / .422) added a three run double for his only hit in four trips while Ben Harrison (.222 / .313 / .354) went 2-4 with a double to drive in one.
