Sunday Notes (7/31)

The LumberKings saw their four-game winning streak snapped by Anthony Giansanti and the Peoria Chiefs last night as Giansanti’s ninth-inning triple scored Richard Jones for the winning run in a 3-1 final.  Right-hander Tyler Burgoon fell to 5-5 with the loss.  Right-hander Taijuan Walker struck out seven and limited the Chiefs to one hit over 5.0 scoreless innings and Stefen Romero belted his team-lead-tying 13th home run in the losing cause.

No pregame interview on this Sunday, but you’ll still get the Game Notes:  7.31.11 kingsnotes

The Kings’ 25-man roster did see a change today as infielder Jetsy Extrano was sent to short-A Everett and infielder Jake Schlander was received from high-A High Desert.  Schlander hit .147 with a home run and seven RBI earlier this season with Clinton.

Starting Lineup:  7.31.11 lineup

It’s an all-southpaw battle today as Tony Butler (1-1, 3.04) starts for the Kings against Peoria’s Austin Kirk (5-7, 3.54).  It’s high time for the offense to handle Kirk, who is 3-0 with a 1.37 ERA in four starts against Clinton this year including his nine-inning no-hitter on July 4.  First pitch is scheduled for 2:00 PM, listen online at
