4/17 @ Lansing Game Notes

The Lugnut top ranked pitching staff (2.02 ERA through 11 games) was as advertised last night, as was Archie Bradley, who tallied a career-high eight strikeouts over five no-hit innings. A combination of four Lugnuts pitchers merged to strikeout 16, including eight in a row at one point late in the game. Archie struck out seven of the final 11 he faced and was particularly strong the second time through the order for a second straight start. Archie now has 22 strikeouts over 16 innings.

Tonight Jeff Shields vies for his first win of 2012 after looking razor sharp last week against Dayton.

It’s another cold and breezy day in Lansing. Just stepped outside and the temperature was in the upper 40s. Should bode well for the pitchers tonight.
