LOWELL — On a night when the Spinners retired the No. 25 of 2009 New-York Penn League All-Star Ryan Westmoreland, telling his story in a moving pre-game ceremony, the Spinners found some late game inspiration.
The Spinners scored two runs in the seventh to tie the game and four runs, including a three-run home run by David Sopilka, in the eighth for a come from behind win, 8-4, over the Tri-City ValleyCats last night.
Tri-City (8-5) jumped out to an early lead, as the Spinners fell behind for the sixth straight game as the ValleyCats scored four second inning runs.
Three straight singles plated a run, and after an infield fly rule an Alex Hernandez double cleared the bases to give Tri-City a 4-0 lead.
Lowell (6-7) got a run back in the bottom half of the inning and got its bats going in the seventh and eighth.
Longhi, Mauricio Dubon and Mike Meyers each had two-hit nights, with Longhi scoring three runs and Meyers adding two RBI. Sopilka made his lone hit count, tallying his first home run of the season.
