Barons Shutout Lookouts, 4-0

White Sox Paul Konerko Rehabbing In Birmingham

Friday, July 19, 2013

Spencer Arroyo dazzled over 7.0 shutout innings as the Barons picked up a 4-0 win over the Lookouts in front of 7,502 fans at Regions Field.

The Lookouts have dropped six of their last seven games. 

The Barons jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the second on a solo home run by All-Star first baseman Dan Black, his team-leading 11th of the season.

The lead would grow to 3-0 in the third on an RBI triple by Trayce Thompson. Paul Konerko would follow with an RBI base hit to right field, his first hit and RBI since joining the Barons as he rehabs from a strained lower back.

Konerko would finish the night 1-for-2 and was replaced as a pinch runner in the 6th after drawing a leadoff walk. His replacement, Keenyn Walker, would come around to score on an RBI double by recent addition Brandon Jacobs.

The run support was more than enough for Arroyo (7-4, 3.34) who allowed just four hits and struck out five over 7.0 shutout innings. It marked the second time this season that Arroyo has tossed 7.0 shutout innings against the Lookouts, having previously accomplished the feat on May 1st.

Kevin Vance recorded the final six outs of the ballgame including three via strikeout as the Barons improved to 58-38 on the season and 14-12 in the second half while the Lookouts fell to 39-54 and 10-15 in the second half. With the win, the Barons also improved to 8-3 against the Lookouts with wins in their last seven in a row.

The Barons will look to win their eighth in a row against the Lookouts Friday night as RHP Stephen McCray (8-6, 3.83) takes the hill against RHP Duke von Schamann (2-1, 3.25).
