Moreland lifts L-Kings to win

Clinton first baseman hits walk-off RBI single in ninth

CLINTON — Mitch Moreland showed why he is the Midwest League leader in RBIs as his ninth inning single to left scored Davis Stoneburner in the ninth inning to give the Clinton LumberKings the 5-4 win over the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.

The LumberKings jumped out to a 1-0 lead in second inning as Tim Smith cracked his seventh home run of the season to right on a 0-1 count.

Clinton starter Ryan Tatusko, making his 11th start, was dominant for the first four innings as he sat down the first 12 batters he faced.

The fifth gave Tatusko trouble as he gave up his first hit, a Joseph Dunigan double to center field.

The next hitter Denny Almonte singled up the middle to score Dunigan and tie the game up at one.

Almonte moved up to second as Tatusko unleashed a wild pitch. With two outs in the frame, Blake Ochoa put the Timber Rattlers up one when he singled to center, scoring Almonte.

Tatusko went seven innings in the no-decision while striking out four and gave up no walks.

Engel Beltre led off the sixth with a walk. Beltre, who has been hot on the base paths lately, collected his 24th stolen base of the season to move up to second.

Matt Lawson walked and Moreland got his 76th RBI of the season by singling to right as Beltre scored easily from second to knot the game up at two.

The LumberKings took the lead back the next inning.

The LumberKing catcher Jose Felix led off with a walk. Kyle Murphy who had a big night by going 3-for-4 doubled to left to score Felix.

After the Murphy double, the Timber Rattlers made a pitching move and brought in Joseph Katakevich.

Stoneburner popped out to the catcher for the first out. Beltre then beat out a chopper to second that put runners on the corners. Then LumberKing manager Mike Micucci put on the most exciting play in baseball, the safety squeeze. Lawson came through by putting down a bunt that scored Murphy from third.
