Loons win 6th straight game; L-Kings drop 10th in a row

The Great Lakes Loons won their sixth consecutive game and the Clinton LumberKings dropped their 10th in a row Monday.

The Loons beat the Burlington Bees 4-3 to not only win their sixth straight game, but also claim their 11th victory in their past 12 games. They currently are in third place in the Eastern Division, 2.5 games behind the Lansing Lugnuts and 1.5 games behind the Bowling Green Hot Rods. The top two teams in each division at the All-Star break* receive postseason berths.

The Dayton Dragons trail the Loons by a game in the standings after dropping their third in a row. They are four games behind the Lugnuts and three games behind the Hot Rods.

The Lake County Captains and the West Michigan Whitecaps each have one less win than the Dragons.

The teams with the best two records in the Midwest League sit atop the Western Division heading into Tuesday’s league-wide off-day. The Quad Cities River Bandits have a 3.5-game lead over the Cedar Rapids Kernels. The third-place Kane County Cougars have won their last four games, but trail the Kernels by six games.

Only two Midwest League teams have been eliminated from a first-half playoff berth, and they are both in the Western Division: the Clinton LumberKings, who lost their 10th consecutive game Monday, and the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, who have the league’s worst record.

*The Midwest League All-Star Game will be played Tuesday, June 23, at Peoria’s Dozer Park. You can see the complete rosters here.
