The Lowell Spinners offense continued its coming out party Tuesday night against the Hudson Valley Renegades in a 10-1 drubbing. The Spinners scoring commenced in the first inning as Wilfred Pichardo legged out a bunt single, then promptly stole second, moved to third on a Derrik Gibson hit and then pulled off a rare steal of home.
Joantoni Garcia and Chris McGuiness both added three run homers in the second and third innings respectivley. McGuiness, now with 29 RBI’s, is third in the NY Penn League, 2 behind Sebastian Valle of Williamsport. The Spinners were also the beneficiaries of poor defense by the Renegades, who committed an astounding six errors in the game. Every Spinner starter had a hit and Derrik Gibson continued his recent hot streak with another three hit performance, he is hitting .388 in his last 10 games.
Spinner pitching only allowed four hits, as Alex Wilson continued his dominance in his three innings of work, not allowing a hit and lowering his ERA to .42. Tom Ebert picked up the win striking out four in his two innings of work.
The Spinners look to continue to make a charge towards the top of the Stedler Division tommorow night as Yeiper Castillo takes the mound at 7:05
