Lowell Continues Charge Toward Playoffs Beat Cyclones 3-1

The Lowell Spinners continued their charge toward the playoffs as they beat a rattled Brooklyn Cyclones team 3-1. The Spinners are now 8-2 in their last 10 games and hold a 5.5 game lead on second place Oneonta in the Stedler Division.

Brooklyn started off strong, scoring one run quickly off of Spinners starter Pedro Perez in the first inning. The Spinners tied the game in the fifth on Derek Gibson’s RBI double, which plated Wilfred Pichardo.

The game remained tight until the eighth when Ronald Bermudez hit a single up the middle to plate Drew Hedman who had hit a one out double.  The Cyclones then became rattled as SS Robbie Shields was ejected by 1B umpire Tim Rosso for arguing about a previous close play at first and just pitches later an easy out was allowed to fall between catcher catcher Dock Doyle and first baseman Alex Gregory. The Spinners extended the lead to 3-1 when Dan Butler’s groundball was thrown away by Cyclones reliever Brandon Sage.

Jordan Flasher picked up the save after getting out of trouble in the ninth, striking out Dock Doyle looking to end the game.

The Spinners are closing in on their second straight playoff berth and tomorrow night, the team will retire the #14 of longtime Red Sox left fielder and 2009 Hall of Fame Inductee Jim Rice during the game, and hand out bobble heads of manager Gary DiSarcina as the gates open at 5:30 p.m. to the first 1,500 fans. Yeiper Castillo (5-1, 3.02) gets the start with first pitch scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

    The great thing is that they are ready to go,
    unlike a full sized cake, which needs to be cut into
    all the pieces. Generally, these folks were
    thought to be a tiny baked cake seems as being a little
    serving of your bigger size cake. You can put spots
    or stripes on the wings if you like, or just leave them
    plain.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s
    simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance. I must say you’ve done a great job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox.
    Excellent Blog!

    Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
