The Lookouts offense came up strong, but when the other team still has more walks that your team has hits, it is hard to win. Both teams were prone to walking and waltzing home last night as the Shuckers beat the Lookouts 12-7 in their final game of the series.

The Lookouts, defending co-champions of the 2017 Southern League, remain in first place in the North Division, 1 1/2 games in front of the Jackson Generals.

Anthony Marzi started. He started with three scoreless innings, but he was tagged with seven runs in the fourth frame. He went 3 2/3 innings and gave up four hits and five walks.

Casey Crosby came on. He gave up two runs on two hits and four walks, and he recorded just two outs. Tyler Jay came on and got the next five outs. He gave up a run on two hits.

Williams Ramirez gave up two runs on one hit and two walks before being replaced by Zack Jones who got the final five outs.

The Lookouts got plenty of offense for most nights.

They scored their seven runs on 12 hits and added two walks. Nick Gordon went 2-for-5 with his fifth home run of the year. Zander Wiel went 2-for-5 with his 12th double and drove in two runs. Brian Navarreto and Edgar Corcino each went 2-for-5 with a double. Tanner English also had two hits. Brent Rooker drove in a run with his ninth double.

The Lookouts announced that pitcher Randy LeBlanc (6-1) has been placed on the disabled list with a flexor mass strain. LeBlanc left his Sunday start in the fourth inning. Zack Jones will come off the disabled list.

On Tuesday, the Minnesota Twins announced that top prospect Nick Gordon would be moving up to the Triple-A level.

What if a student got hold of gun in a struggle with ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: 2018 Ig Nobel Awards

The word ‘ignobel’ is rarely used because only a few among us know that it means "characterized by baseness, lowness, or meanness." About 30 years ago, a glorious group of great scholars took a literary hatchet to form the word into ‘ig nobel’ so it could be placed in the dictionary as a term that means “a satirical social criticism that identifies absurd research.” Think of ...
