Wicked Wizardry on display tonight

A walk-off win over the Connecticut Tigers in the second game of a double-header was the perfect way to send the crowd home. And Carlos Asuaje delivered in a pinch-hit role after Manuel Margot was intentionally walked to load the bases with no outs. Asuaje drove the first pitch he saw over the center fielder’s head and the Spinners completed the one-day, two-game sweep.

Lowell (8-6) sits just three games back of the first-place Tri-City ValleyCats (12-4) in the Stedler Division of the NYPL. Connecticut (4-11) is in last place of the division. Tonight, the Spinners go for the complete series sweep of the Tigers and a chance to finish this six-game home-stand with a 5-1 record. It would also boost the Spinners’ home record to 7-3 for the season. Jamie Callahan (1-1, 6.43 ERA) starts on the hill for the Spinners against Jonathon Crawford (0-1, 0.00 ERA) for the Tigers.

As if the great baseball the Spinners are playing wasn’t enough, the Spinners are hosting Harry Potter Night tonight and will close out the evening with a post-game fireworks spectacular to kick-off your Fourth of July holiday in grand fashion!

Head on out to the ballpark and get in your seat as we divide the stadium into the different Houses of Hogwart’s. Take a ride on the Hogwart’s Express train and be ready for a night of wicked fun!

We’ll see you at LeLacheur Park! Go Spinners! And Happy Fourth, everybody!

Special night ahead

Tonight is a special night at LeLacheur Park. The Lowell Spinners will honor all current and former military personnel during Military Night and Band of Brothers Bobble Head Giveaway tonight. We have a special guest, Private Philip P. Perugini, who is an actual member of the Band of Brothers, for which the film series is based. Private Perugini served our country during World War II and we at the Spinners are honored to have him on hand tonight.

As someone who has a brother in the Army National Guard, I’d like to send a personal shout-out to all those who have served and are serving our great country so that I may have the freedoms and opportunities that I do.

On to baseball, the Spinners are an even .500 for the season (6-6) and enter the month of July after last night’s rain-out in second place in the Stedler Division of the NYPL. Lowell hosts Connecticut in a double-header tonight, first pitch at 6:05 pm, and the third game of the series will be at 7:05 pm Wednesday.

Here’s hoping the rain holds off for tonight and allows us to get both of these games in for our team and our fans. Come on out to the ballpark to see your Lowell Spinners and honor our military! As always, Go Spinners!

Spinners never give up

Well, we didn’t get the sweep we’d hoped for, but our Spinners never quit. It was a long, hot day at LeLacheur Park and the Vermont Lake Monsters salvaged the final game of this three-game series with a 13-4 victory. Vermont jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back. Lowell was down 13-2 in the ninth and scored two runs before finally being put away.

The Spinners bounce back with the final three games of this home-stand against the Connecticut Tigers. Lowell took two games from Connecticut to start the season (one in Connecticut and one in Lowell). The Tigers are in last place in the Stedler Division at 4-8 with a game starting at 5 p.m. against Tri-City today.

The Spinners probable starters are Simon Mercedes (0-0, 2.00 ERA), Jamie Callahan (1-1, 6.34 ERA) and Ty Buttrey (1-1, 3.86 ERA).

Monday’s game features Jenny Dell Bobble Head Night with Jenny Dell, herself, in person! Come see Jenny Dell throw out a first pitch and greet the fans, as well as pick up her lovely bobble head doll.

Tuesday, we honor our servicemen and women with Military Night and a Band of Brothers Bobble Head. All current and former military personnel and their families won’t want to miss this special night.

The final game of the home-stand is Harry Potter Night, a fun evening featuring everybody’s favorite wizard. We will also have fireworks post-game with Harry Potter theme music.

All game times are 7:05 pm (weather permitting), so come on out for some of the best times you’ll ever have at the ballpark! Go Spinners!
