Jason Martin got the scoring started for Lancaster with a 2 run HR in the 4th inning, his 13th HR of the season. In the 6th they would get another 3 runs on a Ritchie 2 run double and a Ballard RBI double. Ballard added an RBI single in the 8th to cap off the scoring.

A-: Tri-City ValleyCats (5-8) played a doubleheader

GAME 1 – lost 8-5 (BOX SCORE)

Adcock got the start and only threw two pitches giving up two hits. Hopefully it wasn’t an injury. DeGoti hit a 2 run single in the bottom of the 2nd to get the scoring started for Tri-City. Benedetti added an RBI single in the 3rd. In the 4th inning, Wrenn hit a solo HR his 4th of the season setting up Tri-City with a lead. Unfortunately the bullpen gave up 6 more runs. Wrenn added another solo HR in the bottom of the 7th but it wasn’t enough.
