Sunday Notes (4/17)

The LumberKings swept last night’s doubleheader action with Kane County, coming back from a 4-0 deficit to win 6-4 in game one, then winning 2-1 in walk-off fashion in game two.  Julio Morban (left) was at the center of the offense in both games, driving in the tying runs on a double and scoring the game-winner on Kevin Rivers’ single in the first game, then lining the winning single to left to score Carlos Ramirez in game two.

Listen to Morban’s walk-off single:  Morban Game-Winning RBI Single 4.16.11.mp3

Morban went a combined 4-for-8 with a run scored and three RBI over the two games as the LumberKings moved up two spots to 6th place in the West.  They’ll go for the sweep of the Cougars today with right-hander Forrest Snow (0-0, 3.00) on the mound.  Snow is coming off his 6.0-inning no-hit effor at Beloit and will be looking for his first professional win this afternoon.
