BlueClaws Snap Losing Streak, Beat Charleston 10-1

LAKEWOOD – After scoring just nine runs in their last four games, all losses, the BlueClaws offense finally awakened Thursday night as Lakewood pounded the Charleston RiverDogs 10-1.

Alan Schoenberger’s two-run double in the sixth broke open what had been a 4-1 ballgame, and starter Trevor May (2-1) let up just one run in six innings, striking out six.


Lakewood (16-10) jumped ahead in the second inning, plating four against Charleston starter Josh Romanski (5-3), who had allowed just five runs in his last 26 2/3 innings and won four starts in a row.

With one out Stephen Batts reached on an error by third baseman Rob Lyerly, Jeremy Barnes walked, and Anthony Hewitt picked up an RBI single to make it 1-0.

Schoenberger then singled, and Barnes scored on a wild pitch. Jonathan Villar’s two-out two-run single pushed the lead to 4-0.

RiverDogs (13-14) first baseman Luke Murton’s RBI single in the sixth made it 4-1, but Schoenberger’s double in the bottom half of the inning extended the lead to 6-1. In the seventh Barnes singled in a run, Batts came in on a wild pitch, and Hewitt doubled to push the lead to eight.

The BlueClaws reached ten runs on a Kyle Lafrenz RBI double in the eighth.

This is the tenth time Lakewood has reached the ten run plateau this season, and the first time since June 12th.

Friday at 7:05 Colby Shreve (5-5, 3.57) goes up against RiverDogs RHP Sean Black (4-6, 4.54).
