Kernels lose Sunday matinee with LumberKings

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The Cedar Rapids Kernels lost their Sunday matinee with the Clinton LimberKings 10-8 in a game that included a bench clearing argument.

After going down 1-0 in the second, the Kernels tied it in their half of the inning when Frazier Hall, who walked to start off the inning, scored from third on a Chevy Clarke double.

Still in the second, the Kernels made it 3-0 when Matthew Scioscia and Chevy Clarke scored on a Wendell Soto double that followed a Carlos Lugo walk.

The Kernels made it 4-1 in the second inning when Lugo was able to score on a wild pitch with Ryan Jones at the plate.

After Clinton scored one in the fourth to make it 4-3, the Kernels made it 5-3 in the bottom of the fourth on a Wendell Soto solo home run.

Clinton tied the game at five in the fifth inning, but the Kernels took the lead in their half of the inning, but not before Ryan Jones was ejected from the game after being caught in a run down when trying to reach second base.  Clinton Ji-Man Choi tagged Jones in the face during the run down, and Jones took exception.  The benches cleared, but no punches were thrown.  Jones was thrown out of the game after exchanging words with home plate umpire Lee Meyers.

After the dust settled, Frazier Hall scored on an Andy Workman triple to make it 6-5 Cedar Rapids.

With the game tied at 6-6 in the seventh, the Kernels took the lead again when Kaleb Cowart scored on an Andy Workman sacrifice.

Clinton broke things open in the eighth, scoring four runs to make it 10-7 LumberKings.

The Kernels managed one last run in the bottom of the ninth when Cowart scored, again on an Andy Workman sacrifice, but it wouldn't be enough as the Kernels fall 10-8.

Aaron Meade took the loss for the Kernels.  He allowed two runs on three hits, including one home run.

The Kernels and Lumber Kings conclude their series on Monday before welcoming Burlington to town on Tuesday.
