LumberKings drop pitcher's duel: Demi Orimoloye scored on a sacrifice fly from Tucker Neuhaus in the sixth inning, spurring the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers to a 2-1 win over the Clinton LumberKings Wednesday at Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton, Wisconsin.
Ljay Newsome (4-3) took the loss for Clinton, giving up five hits in 5.2 innings, including a home run from Trevor Morrison in the fifth inning that tied the game.
Clinton took a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning on the strength of Nick Zammarelli's second home run of the year, but had trouble against Wisconsin starter Thomas Jankins (2-2), who scattered four hits and struck out five over 7.2 innings.
Daniel Brown picked up his fourth save of the season, not allowing a hit in relief.
