Washington Clinches 10th Straight Series Victory Against Lake Erie
WASHINGTON, Pa. (June 22) – The Washington Wild Things took on the Lake Erie Crushers in game two of a three-game set and crushed the Crushers 7-0, securing their 10th-straight series win.
Newly acquired Wild Things lefty Kobe Foster started on the bump for Washington, dealing six shutout innings in the win. Foster struck out three and allowed just three hits in his pro debut out of Tennessee Wesleyan University.
Nick Ward disrupted the scoreless ballgame in the bottom of the third with an opposite-field blast that put the Wild Things up. Scotty Dubrule drove in Jared Mang with a single, who tripled earlier in the inning, and Andrew Czech brought in Dubrule with a sac-fly which brought the inning tally to three runs.
Dubrule kept his on-fire series alive with another RBI in the fifth bringing in Ward. Czech followed suit driving in his second run to make it 5-0 for Washington.
In the seventh, Hector Roa padded the lead to six runs with a gap shot that brought in big man Czech from first. Cole Brannen brought Roa in with a single up the middle to make it 7-0 Washington.
Washington rode that lead to the end of the contest.
