The hosting Muckdogs (9-13) defeated the Lowell Spinners (10-11) with 528 at Dwyer Stadium. Ryan Lillie started and pitched three shutout and walkless innings, allowing three singles and striking two out. Vincenzo Aiello (1-0, 4.50) earned the victory with a perfect fourth inning.

In the bottom of the first, J.C. Millan hit a two-RBI-triple and scored on a Terry Bennett groundout for a 3-0 lead. Batavia added a run in the next inning on a Shao-Pin Ho RBI-single, aided by a throwing error on opposing shortstop Yomar Valentin. Batavia and Lowell traded runs in the sixth, the Spinners on a Brett Netzer RBI-groundout and the Muckdogs on a Marcos Rivera RBI-double.

Batavia added runs in the seventh and the eighth, on a Jhonny Santos (1) solo shot and a Mitchell Osnowitz wild pitch, respectively. Lowell’s Frankie Rios hit an inside-the-park home run in the ninth, but that was all the Spinners could muster in their comeback effort.

Millan finished with a single and a triple, Rivera had a single and a double, and Bennett with a pair of base hits.
