  • LumberKings score eight late in 11-3 win

    First, it was an opossum that led to the Clinton LumberKings to victory this week. On Friday, it may have been the rain.
    Clinton (46-62) scored eight runs in a 11-3 win over the Burlington Bees (57-52) following a rain delay that halted the game for 70 minutes.
    The rain delay did not help the Bees, as Burlington committed four errors in the final two innings leading to the eight runs that the LumberKings tallied. All eight runs were unearned.
    Brett Thomas led off the ninth inning on an Erick Salcedo error, then Isaiah Yates hit a single to advance Thomas. Andy Peterson hit a sacrifice fly that advanced Thomas to third base with one out.
    Bees second baseman then booted an Aaron Barbosa ground ball that scored Thomas and sent Yates to third and Barbosa to second base.
    Yates and Barbosa scored on a Jack Reinheimer single to left field; Chantz Mack then brought in Reinheimer on a scorching double that sailed to the right field wall at Community Field.

  • LumberKings get first win in a week

    After a delay that involved the opossum making itself at home at Modern Woodmen Park, the LumberKings (14-24, 44-62) found a new rally animal to drive its first win in a week. It took a ninth inning foul out sacrifice fly by left fielder Chantz Mack to defeat the hometown Quad Cities River Bandits 6-5.

    The win snapped a six game losing streak for Clinton and a four game winning streak for Quad Cities.
