Real easy night for me tonight.
Heading back to sweet home Des Moines. Where the skies are blue.
The Smokies blinded the Chattanooga Lookouts, 2-0.
Starter Casey Lambert dominated for seven innings this afternoon. Lambert allowed only three hits, didn't walk anyone and struck out five.
Alex Maestri recorded his first save of the season by tossing the final two innings. Maestri allowed one hit, walked one and struck out one.
First baseman Blake Lalli was 2 for 3 with a double and both Smokies RBI.
Went to bed, bumped their head and didn't get up in the morning. Rain out.
The Chiefs were capsized by the West Michigan Whitecaps, 6-2.
Did you hear that Chris Carpenter pitched tonight? No, not this one, I'm sure you heard about that. I mean this one. Unfortunately, the wrong Chris Carpenter had a good night tonight as the one on the Chiefs took the loss against the Whitecaps. Carpenter allowed two runs on six hits and three walks in only three innings. Carpenter struck out three.
Manolin De Leon made his season debut tonight and was pretty good except for one solo home run. That was the only hit and run he allowed in 2.2 innings of relief. De Leon walked one and struck out four.
Left fielder Josh Harrison was 3 for 3 with three doubles. He scored once.
Josh Vitters' streak came to an end tonight as he went 0 for 4.
