Burgos Throws Gem in LFT Win (4/15 Recaps)

Starting pitching was lackluster for Lakeland on Monday but the bullpen was impressive, led by Alex Burgos' gem of a performance against Brevard County in a 6-3 win. Jason King was also impressive from an offensive standpoint highlighted by a two-run home run. Erie failed to hold on to a win against Bowie, while Toledo lost a lead late to fall to Indianapolis.

Despite a shining performance at the plate from Ben Guez Toledo was unable to top Indianapolis in the series opener, falling to the Indians 5-4. Toledo appeared to have the win locked up going in to the top half of the eighth inning, but Indianapolis drove in three runs in the eighth inning to overcome a 4-2 deficit. Evan Reed earned his first loss of the season in relief, surrendering three earned runs on two hits in 1/3 innings. Bruce Rondon took a blown save in the loss by allowing three inherited runners to score, but did strike out four over 1 2/3 innings. Starter Pat Misch did well in his no decision performance, giving up two earned runs on five hits in 5 2/3 innings. Guez went 2-for-3 while driving in three runs in the loss, while Bryan Holiday also drove in a run.

Starting pitcher Kyle Lobstein struggled on his way to his first loss of the season, giving up five earned runs on 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings. Wade Gaynor continued his strong start to the season offensively, going 2-for-4 with a solo home run and drawing a walk. Luis Castillo also drove in a run on a 2-for-4 night.

Reliever Alex Burgos was dominant in his second win of the season, giving up just one hit in 3 2/3 innings of shutout work.
