MWL teams start day with great pitching, offensive outburst

Great pitching and an offensive outburst were key elements of the first three Midwest League games that went final Saturday.

Lake County Captains 12, Lansing Lugnuts 0

Lake County pitchers kept Lansing’s bats at bay, limiting them to only four hits at Cooley Law School Stadium. The main story in this game, however, was how much offense the Captains mustered.

Six of nine Captains had multi-hit games, with only Willi Castro going hitless (0-for-6). Tyler Krieger went 5-for-6 with a double, two runs batted in, two stolen bases, and four runs scored. Anthony Miller and Sam Haggerty each went 3-for-5 with one RBI.

Box score

Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 2, Peoria Chiefs 1

Peoria starting pitcher Junior Fernandez (L, 2-1) struck out 10 batters in eight innings, but allowed a two-run single to Wisconsin’s Monte Harrison that was enough for a Timber Rattlers win at Dozer Park.

Chiefs shortstop Edmundo Sosa went 2-for-4 with a solo homer.

Box score

Kane County Cougars 1, Quad Cities River Bandits 0

Kane County’s Joe Queliz went 3-for-3 with two doubles, but it was teammate Joe Munoz who drove in the game’s only run at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark.

Both starting pitchers performed well. Cougars RHP Taylor Clarke (W, 2-1) gave up four hits and one walk while striking out four in six scoreless innings. River Bandits RHP Rogelio Armenteros (L, 0-2) gave up one run on three hits and three walks while striking out five in 5.2 innings.
