Captains shutout by Loons, 2-0
EASTLAKE - After a slow start to Wednesday’s game, the first home game of the second half, the Captains couldn’t break through and fell to the Loons 2-0.
Right hander Luis Dejesus started for Lake County and pitched six innings, while only allowing six hits and two runs. But Dejesus’ efforts weren’t enough for Lake County, who faced left hander Miguel Sulbaran, who threw six innings and only allowed two hits.
“We faced a guy who did a great job tonight pitching, their whole staff did,” manager Scooter Tucker said. “No excuses, but we’ve had a nice little run on the road, but we kinda played flat, and I still think he (Dejesus) played great.”
The run on the road Tucker spoke about was the Captains starting the second half of the season going 5-1, with all six games on the road.
Another issue for Lake County was center fielder Aaron Siliga jamming his finger while stealing second base after singling in his first at bat. He was pulled from the game and Logan Vick filled in for Siliga to finish the game.
The Loons have beaten the Captains seven out of ten games so far this season, and Lake County has been shut out six times this season as well.
The Captains continue their home stand against the Loons on Thursday at 11am and Friday at 7pm.
