BlueClaws win again in walkoff fashion

July 06, 2011

LAKEWOOD, N.J. — Lakewood pushed across a run with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning for a 1-0 victory over Hagerstown on Wednesday, leaving both teams with an 8-6 record in the second half of the South Atlantic League season.

The Suns had a big problem with Lakewood starter Lisalberto Bonilla, who struck out 12 and walked none.

Hagerstown managed only five hits off Bonilla and had just two scoring opportunities, both going for naught.

The Suns left runners at first and third in the fifth inning and had two on in the top of the ninth with one out before Justin Martinson grounded into a double play.

Robbie Ray went six scoreless innings with seven strikeouts for the Suns, allowing only four hits. Ben Graham threw a scoreless seventh and eighth.

Lakewood got to Sam Brown in the 10th inning when Cameron Rupp singled. Carlos Perdomo moved up pinchrunner Jeff Lanning to second with a sacrifice and Lanning scored when Edgar Duran roped a single to left field.

The Suns return home tonight to begin a four-game homestand against West Virginia.
