Tuesday Notes (8/30)

The streak had to end sometime for your LumberKings, and that time came last night with a 6-3 defeat at the hands of the Beloit Snappers.  After tasting only victory over the last eight days, the Kings fell behind 4-0 in the fifth as Nate Roberts delivered a bases-loaded RBI single to center and Michael Gonzales followed with a three-run homer into the right-field Lumber Lounge.  Left-hander Anthony Fernandez gave up a total of five runs, one earned, over 5.2 innings in his first loss since July 17.  Kalian Sams clubbed a three-run homer over the Coors Light Picnic Pavilion (listen: Sams 3-R HR (#17) 8.29.11) to cut the deficit to 5-3 in the sixth, but that would be as close as Clinton would get all night.  Snappers’ right-hander A.J. Achter picked up the win with three runs over 5.1 innings and 10 strikeouts.

Tonight’s Game Notes:  8.30.11 kingsnotes

Starting Lineup:  8.30.11 lineup

With seven games remaining (including tonight’s regular-season home finale), the LumberKings have a magic number of five games to clinch the West Division’s top playoff spot over Kane County.  Left-hander Roenis Elias (3-1, 3.94) hopes to get them one step closer to doing so.  He’ll be opposed tonight by Beloit right-hander Blayne Weller (5-6, 4.23).  First pitch (pending rain) is scheduled for 6:30 PM, listen online at 1390kcln.com.
