4/16 @ Lansing
Very windy today in Lansing just as it was in South Bend when we left this morning. The Lugnuts are off to a great start – they won their first seven games – then lost to West Michigan – but have since won two straight. Great pitching matchup in game one tonight as it pits a pair of first-rounders. Right-hander Archie Bradley – drafted seventh overall in 2011 – faces righty Noah Syndergaard, who was taken 38th overall in 2010.
The Hawks offense busted out yesterday afternoon for a season-high 10 runs on a season-high 13 hits. Chris Ellison (4-for-5, 2 RBI) and Tom Belza (4-for-4, 5 RBI) were a combined 8-for-9 with seven batted in. J.R. Bradley had a bounce back start, allowing just a run on two hits over six innings.
