Lowell Spinners looks to extend win streak to eight games
BROOKLYN, N.Y. – After sweeping the Connecticut Tigers (4-9), affiliate of the Detroit Tigers, and the Tri-City ValleyCats (4-8), affiliate of the Houston Astros, in their last six games, the Lowell Spinners (10-2), proud affiliate of the 2018 World Champion Boston Red Sox, head to the Empire State to take on the Brooklyn Cyclones (7-5) in a three-day, four-game set.
The Spinners go into the four-game set against their McNamara division foes, riding a seven-game winning streak stretching back to June 19 when they defeated the Cyclones at LeLacheur Park by a final of 4-2, closing out a series win.
Not only have the Spinners won seven in a row in that stretch, but because they defeated Brooklyn back on the 19th, they have not lost a series to this point in the 2019 season.
In game one of the series on Friday night, Lowell will have Yasel Santana on the hill. Last time out, Santana went five innings, allowing one run (earned) on three hits while striking out six, and walking just two. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
On Saturday, the Spinners will play a doubleheader with the Cyclones, their third in as many series. Game one is slated for 4:00 p.m. and the second will commence 30 minutes after the first game concludes.
In game one, the Spinners will throw Aldo Ramirez. In his last game, Ramirez got the win on the road against the Tigers. Ramirez also went five innings but allowed no runs on two hits. He also struck out seven and walked two.
In game two, Miguel Suero will make his first start of the season, but the fourth appearance of the season. Suero started the season with the Greenville Drive (South Atlantic League), but did not start there either.
Overall, on the season, Suero holds an 0-2 record with a 4.00 ERA in 18.0 innings. He has also struck out 17 and walked nine. In three appearances with the Spinners, Suero has not recorded a decision, holds a 0.00 ERA in 7.2 innings. He has allowed a run, but it was unearned. Suero has also struck out seven and walked four.
In game four, Ryan Zeferjahn will make his professional debut for Lowell after being drafted in the 3rd round of the 2019 MLB Draft out of the University of Kansas. In his junior season with the Jayhawks, Zeferjahn went 5-2 with an ERA of 3.97 over 88.1 innings. He also struck out 107 batters, while walking only 44.
All four games can be heard on WCAP 980AM and on TuneIn.com/the Tune-In App. First pitch in game one is Friday night at 7:00 p.m.
