Low Class-A Great Lakes
The Loons scored just three runs in their doubleheader against the TinCaps (Padres) but that was enough to get the sweep by 1-0 and 2-1 scores.
In the first game, Kevin Guzman struck out a season high 8 batters and only gave up two hits in his six innings of work. Kyle Hooper got the save.
The Loons scored the only run in the game when Jimmy Allen singled in Jacob Scavuzzo in the fifth inning.
The TinCaps scored first in the second game but further scoring was denied when Franmil Reyes was thrown out on a fielders choice.
But that run looked like it might hold up. The Loons had two outs and none on in the seventh inning when Jacob Scavuzzo singled and Spencer Navin walked. After a pinch-runner was brought in for Navin, Kelvin Ramos doubled in two runs.
Karch Kowalczyk pitched two innings to get the win
