Cole Stobbe continued his hot hitting streak Friday night with his third home run in the last two games. Stobbe, who homered twice in Thursday night’s 11-10 loss, hit an opposite field home run in the sixth to put the BlueClaws up 7-0 on their way to a 7-3 win over Greensboro. It was his fifth home run of the season and fourth off Greensboro.
Hunter Stovall and Rafael Marchan, the first two batters in the Lakewood lineup, had three hits apiece in Lakewood’s win. The BlueClaws had been winless in seven tries against Greensboro entering the game on Friday night.
Lakewood opened scoring with three runs in the second inning. They scored one run on a throwing error on Hoppers pitcher Osvaldo Bido and added two on a single by Hunter Stovall, who singled in another run in the fourth, an inning which also included an RBI double from Rafael Marchan and a run scoring on a balk.
Lakewood starter Tyler McKay threw four hitless innings with two walks. Gilmael Troya came on in the fifth with a scoreless inning, allowing Greensboro’s first hit. Kyle Glogoski (3-1) earned the win with 2 1/3 innings of relief. He allowed one run, which scored when Abdallah Aris walked in a run later in the eighth inning.
Stovall’s three hits were his first three-hit game of the season. He added three RBI in the win. Marchan had three hits for the second straight night. Yerwin Trejo and Jake Holmes had two hits apiece for the BlueClaws as well.
