On a warm sunny afternoon at Dow Diamond saw the Great Lakes Loons in action against the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. It also saw the grand opening of the new Midland County Sports Hall of Fame. With an average crowd in attendance the Loons dropped another contest to the Timber Rattlers 5-0. The Loons hitting has gone South as the weather has warmed up here in Michigan.
Loon starter Lindsey Caughel deserved better on this Sunday afternoon. Loons could not muster any type of threat her today. The highlight of the day had to do with things away from the diamond. Los Angeles Dodgers executive Tommy Lasorda who is in town to view the teams progress will be here for 3 days. Also the Midland Sports Hall of Fame opened a new location here at the Dow Diamond with the perfect spot for all sports fans to view.
One of the bright spots for the Loons has been 1st round draft pick (2012) Corey Seager who is on a 9 game hitting streak. The Loons will play one more game against the Timber Rattlers tomorrow at 10:35a.m. in an Education Day Game. About 5,000 school age kids will in attendance to see the morning game. Then it is off on the road for the Loons traveling to Fort Wayne.
