KCT Baseball Game Preview: Tri-City at Lowell

Posted by Joshua Kummins on August 31, 2010



Tonight the Lowell Spinners host the Tri-City ValleyCats (HOU) in the opener of a three-game New York-Penn League series at LeLacheur Park. Last night, Lowell swept Staten Island out of Lowell with a 6-3 win, while Tri-City topped Hudson Valley, 5-4, in 14 innings.

Last night’s win was Lowell’s fourth in a row, their longest winning streak by far this season. Tri-City has won two of three, but dropped four of six.

In the Stedler Division, Vermont (WSH) has a half-game lead on the 34-34 ValleyCats. Tri-City has a half-game lead over third-place Connecticut (DET), while the Spinners bring up the rear at 23-45 and 11.5 games out.  

Madison Younginer takes the ball for Bruce Crabbe and the Spinners, while the Tri-City starter will be minor league veteran David Martinez. Younginer is 3-6 with a 4.74 ERA in 13 starts for the Spinners this season as he took the loss in his last start on Thursday at Staten Island. He allowed four hits and three runs (two earned) over 4.1 innings in the second game of a doubleheader. He took a no-decision in his only start against Tri-City this season, a five-inning effort in Troy on July 30. Martinez has a solid 4-2 record and 2.78 ERA in 15 games (eight starts) for the ValleyCats. On Thursday, he allowed seven hits and three runs (two earned) over seven innings in a no-decision on the road against Hudson Valley. He allowed two hits in a win in Lowell on June 21, while he suffered the loss a week later at Bruno Stadium.
