STREAK SNAPPED IN BROOKLYN AFTER DOUBLEHEADER LOSS
Franchise record win-streak ends after 11 games
BROOKLYN, NY – After picking up their 11th straight win on Friday night, the Spinners (20-15) rolled into Brooklyn (19-16) looking to extend their win streak to a dozen and it would take two days to complete the action.
Lowell came hot out of the gate when Devlin Granberg doubled home Jonathan Ortega with one out in the top of the first.
They struck again in the top of the second when Tyler Esplin tripled to lead off the inning. Fellow outfielder Tyler Dearden then grounded out but brought home the run to make it 2-0.
Thad Ward made the start for Lowell and managed to throw three quality innings before the game was suspended for the night due to rain. He surrendered four hits and an earned run with a walk and two strikeouts.
After play resumed on Sunday, Marcus Walden threw 1.2 innings of relief, allowing the tying run on two hits, two walks, and a strikeout.
Hunter Haworth followed with 3.1 innings out of the bullpen. He surrendered one unearned run, a pair of hits, and four strikeouts.
Unfortunately, the offense could not muster a tying run as the Spinners would fall to the Cyclones 3-2, snapping the longest win streak in franchise history.
The second game of a doubleheader in Brooklyn (20-16) unfortunately, had the same result as the first game as the Spinners (20-16) dropped their second straight.
Chris Machamer got the start for Lowell and went the first three innings of a seven-inning game. He surrendered five hits and an earned run while striking out three.
Left-hander Oddanier Mosqueda threw 1.1 innings out of the bullpen and allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits, three walks, and a strikeout. He was relieved by Tanner Raiburn who threw 1.2 innings of scoreless ball while striking out one.
The offense couldn’t muster any run support as the Spinners would go on to lose 4-0. With an off-day on Monday, Lowell kicks off a six-game homestand on Tuesday with Eduard Bazardo scheduled to take the hill against the Hudson Valley Renegades. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.
