Recap - Lucas swats grand slam in Outlaws' win over Dutchmen


The Oneonta Outlaws returned to their winning ways with a 12 to 3 victory over the Albany Dutchmen on Monday evening at Damaschke Field. This was a critical win for the Outlaws as they strived to remain eligible for the four team postseason playoff.

Zach Lucas (Louisville) was the surprise hero with a grand slam home run over the left field fence in the bottom of the fifth inning. This was the first Outlaw home run at Damaschke for the 2012 season and brought fans to their feet as it allowed the Outlaws to take a 4-1 lead, one which they would not relinquish. The Outlaws then broke the game wide open at the bottom of the sixth scoring six runs off five hits.

Leading hitters for the Outlaws include, Zach Lucas (Louisville) with a home run, four RBI and a walk, Shane Crain (Louisville) with two hits, two runs and a RBI and Cory Hunt (Utah) with two walks, a hit-by-pitch, two runs and a stolen base. Zac Johnson (Illinois State) also picked up a hit, a walk and two runs, while Omar Garcia (State College of Florida) added two hits and a run. Zander Wiel (Vanderbilt) also enjoyed a good game with two hits, three RBI, a walk and a run, while Clay Holcomb (Troy) had two hits, a walk and two RBI.

Oneonta starting pitcher Sheldon Lee got off to a good start mowing down the first nine Albany batters before allowing a walk at the top of the fourth. Through seven innings Lee allowed three runs off four hits and picked up his fifth win of the season against one loss. The Dutchmen were unable to put together a sustained offensive inning, as Jeremy Rhoades (Illinois State) came in with two innings of one-hit relief.  Rhoades struck out six of the seven batters he faced.

Line score for the evening was Albany 3 runs, 5 hits and 4 errors and Oneonta 12 runs, 12 hits and no errors, in 2:54.

The Outlaws return to Damaschke on Wednesday for a 7:00pm contest against the Elmira Pioneers.
