Winning streak reaches two for Loons

David Sutherland paced the Loons with three hits, and Josh Wall was spectacular on the mound as the Great Lakes Loons won thier second game in a row Sunday by a score of 10-1. Every player in the Loons lineup recorded at least one hit in the game, which was played before 4,567 fans at Dow Diamond.

For the Loons, right-hander Josh Wall (1-2) started and pitched seven innings, allowing only three hits and no runs or walks while striking out six. Michigan native Doug Brooks came on in relief and pitched two innings.

Josh Bell drove home a run when his ground ball down the first base line bounced off the bag and over the head of Kernels first basemen Josh Davies, making it 1-0. Trayvon Robinson’s two-run double down the line highlighted a four-run fourth inning making it 5-0. The Loons would add a trio of runs in the fifth and a pair of runs in the seventh inning to make it 10-0. Five different players had two hits in the rout.

Robinson went 2-for-3 with two walks, two runs batted in and a stolen base. He wasn’t alone in the base swiping category as four Loons stole bases in Sunday’s win. Josh Bell, Matt Berezay and Francisco Lizarraga were able to add to their stolen base totals as well.

The Loons record improves to 6-10 while the Kernels drop to 7-6.

The Loons will take on Cedar Rapids Monday night at Dow Diamond. Right hander Michael Gardner will make his first start of the season for the Loons against Tim Schoeninger for Cedar Rapids.
