Kernels pop off 12 runs


In Cleto’s 2 1/3 innings of relief, he allowed five earned runs on six hits. He walked just one Kernel and struck one out.

Mark Bordenaro came in for two perfect innings, then Rafael Pineda came in for the ninth.

Cedar Rapids scored three more runs in the final frame that included a two-run home run from Ivory Thomas that landed in the right-field patio.

After the loss, Steinmann held a brief closed door meeting with the team. While he wouldn’t disclose what was said during the meeting, Steinmann realizes that the players aren’t at top caliber yet.

“We’re young; these guys are still learning,” Steinmann said. “If I had a crystal ball for what was happening right now, I’d be in the major leagues.”

Clinton saw itself outscored 49-18 in the 1-5 homestand while getting out-hit 82-39.

Steinmann, however, is looking forward to the road trip coming up this week for the LumberKings.

“The stat sheet goes blank,” Steinmann said. “We’ll go on the road, and it’s a new series. We say all the time about winning the next series, and the one we’re focused on now is Quad Cities.”

Clinton opens its road trip with a doubleheader at 6 p.m. today at Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport. On the road trip, the LumberKings face the River Bandits five times, head up to Wisconsin for a three-game series, then return back to Iowa to face the Burlington Bees at the beginning of next week before returning home May 8.
