Rascals Shutout in Finale

Rascals Shutout in Finale

AVON, Ohio -- The River City Rascals suffered their first shutout loss of the season on Sunday afternoon, dropping the series finale to the Lake Erie Crushers by a score of 1-0 at Sprenger Stadium. Jake Vieth drove in the only run of the game, on a lead-off homer in the fifth. The Rascals still earned the series victory after winning the first two games.

Rascals starter Taylor Ahearn (2-3) allowed just the one run on four hits in a complete game effort, striking out nine without issuing a walk over eight innings. Crushers starter Jared Koenig (6-1) went seven shutout innings, allowing four hits, two walks, and striking out six on the night. Crusher reliever Seth Lucio worked a perfect eighth while Logan Lombana retired the side in the ninth for his seventh save of the season.

The Rascals (40-33) have the next two days off, after completing a stretch of 14 games in 13 days. They return to O'Fallon for a doubleheader against the Windy City ThunderBolts at CarShield Field on Wednesday, with first pitch of the opener set for 5:05 p.m. CDT.
