BARNSTORMERS THUMPED IN NIGHTCAP

Sugar Land Launches Five Homers in 15-6 Win

Jared Mitchell slammed two homers and drove in six runs to lead the Sugar Land Skeeters to a 15-6 win over the host Lancaster Barnstormers Tuesday evening at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

The rout completed a day-night doubleheader sweep for the Skeeters who took the opener, 1-0.

Mitchell clubbed a solo homer with one out in the top of the first off Jonathan Albaladejo (0-3).  Cody Stanley and Juan Silverio added solo blasts over the next pair of innings for a 3-0 Sugar Land lead.

Stanley connected again in the top of the fifth for a 6-0 lead.  Mitchell tacked on a RBI single later that inning before an eighth run crossed the plate on a force play grounder.

The Mitchell slam came in the top of the eighth off reliever Logan Sawyer on the heels of a bases loaded walk to Alvaro Rondon and made it, 13-1.  Two more strode home as Albert Cordero greeted Caleb Gindl with a two-run double.

Gindl singled home a run in the bottom of the eighth, and the Barnstormers built some momentum with four runs on five singles in the ninth, including two on a base hit to left center by Dan Gamache.

The series concludes on Wednesday at 11:00 AM with John Anderson (2-0) taking the hill for the Barnstormers.  Fans may tune into the Barnstormers YouTube Channel, beginning at 10:45.
