Erie – Rained Out

Lakeland 6, Brevard County 0
Kevin Ardoin pitched a complete game shut out. He allowed only 6 hits, and his defense backed him up. He walked none, and of the 27 outs, only one came via strikeout. He helped his own cause by picking off two. Clete Thomas homered for Lakeland and Jeff Larish added a double. Jim Essian had 3 hits including a homer. Wilkin Ramirez made his 11th error of the season.

West Michigan 6, Peoria 1
Michael Hollimon paced the attack with a homer and two singles. Cameron Maybin once again was held out. Burke Badenhop pitched a complete game with the only run coming on a solo shot. He walked none and fanned 5.

    Kevin Ardoin continues to roll. Between him and Jair Jurrjens, there are a couple of aces in that Lakeland rotation. I would love to see both promoted over the course of the year.
