Lake Erie edged Midwest by two runs in both games of a double header Tuesday night. The Crushers took the first game 6-4 and the second 3-1.

In both games, the Sliders threatened by bringing the winning run to the plate but couldn’t deliver.

A triple by John Rivera and a home run by Andrew Davis in the first inning of the first game put the Crushers up 2-0. Davis’ next at bat in the third inning would end in the same result, with a solo shot to right and a 3-0 lead for Lake Erie.

The Crushers added two more runs to take a 5-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning. Gordon Gronkowski reached on an error by third baseman Gilberto Zayas. Tim Binkoski followed with a double to left field. Gronkowski scored on a fielder’s choice and Binkoski came in on a balk by Slider’s starter Mike Penn.

Zayas redeemed himself in the bottom half of the fourth, hitting a two-run bomb to center field, scoring Sam DeLuca and making the score 5-2.

The Sliders made it a one-run game in the fifth inning. Zack Pace and Roberto Mena lead off the inning with singles. Jimmy Baker brought in Mena with a sacrifice fly. Mena stole third base and would score on a single by Jonnie Knoble.

Lake Erie went up 6-4 in the sixth inning with a double and a single.

Mike Penn (3-4) pitched all seven innings for the Sliders, allowing four earned runs on eight hits.

Kevin Skogley (2-1) received the win for the Crushers, going five innings and allowing four runs on nine hits. Shannon Sprouse pitched the final two innings for his second save of the season.

In the second game, Baker gave the Sliders the lead in the first inning, with a solo home run to left. Baker was 2-2 with a walk for the game.

That run would hold until the fifth inning. Sliders starter Kyle Kearcher had only given up one hit in his first four innings.

Gronkowski lead off the Crushers half of the fifth with a home run. Binkoski followed with a single and was moved to second with a sacrifice bunt. Wayne Bond walked; Binkoski stole third and would later score. Bond scored on Andrew Baylor’s sacrifice fly after he was moved to third on a bunt hit by Joden Rivera, putting the Crushers a 3-1 lead.

Kearcher (1-5) threw 6 1-3 innings giving up three runs on seven hits and striking out four.

Brad Davidson (1-1) recorded the win for the Crushers going five innings and allowing one run on three hits. Jacinto Gonell pitched the final two innings for his seventh save of the season.

The series finale will be at Oestrike Stadium tomorrow beginning at 7:05 p.m.
