Spinners end skid in Vermont, cruise past Lake Monsters

BURLINGTON, Vt. — The Lowell Spinners scored one in the fourth, two in the fifth, two in the sixth and on in the seventh en route to a 6-3 win over the Vermont Lake Monsters last night at Centennial Field.

The win snapped a three game losing streak for the Spinners and evened their record at 12-12 on the season.

Lowell (12-12) would score first in the top half of the fourth inning on a lead-off home run by Jordan Betts, his team-leading fourth of the season. Back-to-back singles by Nick Longhi and Franklin Guzman would follow and a one-out single by Nick Moore loaded the bases, but David Sopilka grounded into a double play to end the inning with the game tied at one.

The Spinners would take the lead for good in the fifth, this time on a Danny Mars leadoff home run, his first as a professional. After two quick outs, Betts worked a walk and Longhi followed with a double to right, scoring Betts and extending the lead to 3-1.

Raymel Flores led the Spinners offense with a three hit night, while Longhi extended his hitting streak to a season-high nine games with a two-hit night.

Randy Perez (2-2, 2.78) picked up the win, going five innings while allowing just one run on five hits and two walks

Fisher Cats take opener

MANCHESTER, N.H. — The Fisher Cats took one game of their doubleheader against New Britain last night, 2-0, but Mother Nature took the second with a torrential downpour in the top of the third inning.

Radhames Liz was the story of game one as the right-hander tossed his first complete game in a Fisher Cats uniform this season. He held the Rock Cats to just two hits, striking out eight without walking a batter.
