Tony Plagman (DH) drove in the only Lakeland run and went 2-4 with a double. I have been singing the praises of catcher Rob Brantly for most of the year. DD finally took my advice and promoted the 21 year old from West Michigan to Lakeland. In his high A debut, Brantly was 2-4. Hopefully Hernan Perez and Nick Casteallanos are not too far behind.
