Box Score




Great Lakes played a DH with Lansing Lugnuts (A’s), winning both – Pitching was the star in both games, although the offense is showing signs of life.


Great Lakes Loons 12 – Lansing Lugnuts 1 (Game 1 – 7 innings)

Jared Karros continues to impress.  He completed 5.0 IP, allowing a single run on 4 hits, with 6 K.

GL struck first in the 1st inning.  Alex Freeland singled and scored on Noah Miller’s 1st HR of the season.  Karros gave one back on a pair of doubles from the Lugnuts.

GL got a pair of doubles of their own in the 3rd from Kyle Nevin and Chris Newell.

GL got 3 in the 5th on a 3-run HR from Newell.

GL broke it wide open in the 7th.  Kyle Nevin, Noah Miller, and Chris Newell opened the frame with doubles.  Yunior Garcia singled to plate Newell for the 3rd run of the inning.  Nelson Quiroz and Sam Mongelli each singled to load the bases.  Alex Freeland hit a 3-run triple to finish the scoring.

Box Score




Great Lakes Loons 8 – Lansing Lugnuts (A’s) 5 (Game 2 – 7 innings)

Great Lakes got another brilliant start in Game 2.  Peter Heubeck seemingly put one up on Jared Karros.  He also completed 5.0 innings.  But 0 runs, on 2 hits, 3 BB, 8 K.  The 3 walks was the one sour note on Heubeck’s day.

Luis Rodriguez got the scoring started with a solo HR (1) in the 3rd inning.

The Loons struck for 4 in the 5th.  Rodriguez and Nick Biddison each drew a BB, and Jordan Thompson singled home Rodriguez with Biddison moving to third.  A WP brought home Biddison and moved Thompson to 2B.  Thompson moved to 3B on a fielder’s choice, and after Thayron Liranzo walked, Noah Miller hit a sac fly.  Liranzo scored on a double by Chris Newell (his 3rd in the DH).

Two singles and two doubles and a fielding error plated 3 insurance runs, that they needed, in the 6th.

Kelvin Bautista relieved Heubeck and allowed 1 hit, with 3 K in his 1.0 inning of work.

Joel Ibarra has been hit hard thus far in 2024.  This day would prove no different.  He allowed a single, 3 BB, and 2 HBP.  But thanks to a DP, only one run had scored, but the bases remained loaded for Will Simpson.  Simpson hit a grand slam to bring the Lugnuts to with 3.

Brandon Neeck came in to the game in a save situation.  After a single to the first batter he faced, he closed the game on a 4-3 groundout, and got the save, his first.

  • Luis Rodriguez – 3-3, 1 BB, 3 runs, 1 RBI, 2 doubles (2), HR (1)
  • Jordan Thompson – 2-3, 2 runs, 2 RBI, double (3)
  • Chris Newell – 1-3, 1 BB, 1 RBI, double (3)

In 20 PA, Luis Rodriguez is now batting .500/.550/.778/1.328 – 9-18, 2 doubles, and 1 HR.  Rodriguez was once one of the highly touted IFA players signed by LAD.  He signed July 2019.  Could it be at 21, Luis is starting to figure it out?  He has a ways to go to make believers of the Dodgers, but he is off to a great start in 2024.

Who will get called up first this season: Pages or Vargas?


Add Heubeck to the watch list. Still waiting on Sheehan & Ryan to make some news. Frasso out. Wrobleski white hot. Knack possibly next in line if Buehler needs some time. The only constant is change.


What happened to the Box Scores?


Pads brought their bats. Dodgers didn’t. But do you deserve to win a game in which you issue 14 walks?
