Remington Shines in DockHounds Victory
Jesse Remington allowed one run in six innings to earn his second victory of the season as the Lake Country DockHounds defeated the Kane County Cougars early Wednesday afternoon, 7-3. Remington scattered three hits and issued just one walk while striking out four.
The DockHounds jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first thanks to RBI singles by Gabriel Noriega and Wilfredo Gimenez. The lead became four in the top half of the third when Tristen Carranza singled home two more runs. Kane County cut the deficit to three on a homerun by Nick Anderson, his second of the year, but Lake Country put this game away in the top of the sixth, scoring three runs. Carranza came home on a balk and Casey Dykstra followed with his first homerun for the DockHounds.
José Fuentes took the loss, allowing seven runs in 5.1 innings. Dylan Busby had two hits for Kane County.
Sagdal Delivers Walk-Off Double to Lead Saltdogs
Ian Sagdal drove in the game-winning run with one down in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Winnipeg Goldeyes a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Dogs. Winnipeg took a 2-0 lead in the bottom the first thanks to a two-run single by David Washington. K.C. Hobson led off the top of the second with a homerun to cut the deficit in half, but Max Murphy restored the two-run lead with an RBI single in the fifth.
The Dogs responded right away in the top of the sixth, as Ryan Lidge and Stevie Wilkerson each drove in a pair of runs to tie the score at three. The teams exchanged runs in the seventh. Michael Crouse drove home a run with an RBI single and Murphy delivered his second RBI the game in the bottom half of the inning. That set up the ninth. Eric Rivera drew a one-out walk, and Sagdal followed by drilling a 2-2 pitch to the wall, bringing Rivera all the way around to score.
Tasker Strobel earned the victory with a scoreless inning of relief. Paul Schwendel took the loss. Hobson finished with three hits. Murphy and Sagdal each had three hits for the Goldeyes. Rivera and Sagdal scored two runs and Murphy and Washington each drove in a pair.
