On July 2, the Lake Monsters took on the Tri-City ValleyCats and overcame a 4-2 deficit to win the game 7-4. The win marked the 600th win in Lake Monsters history, and improved their 2011 record to 9 wins and 5 losses.
The Lake Monsters finished off the weekend by completing the home sweep of Tri-City by winning 7-6 on Sunday afternoon, in a game that featured a four-run rally in the ninth inning. During this week, they are in the middle of a two-game series at Tri-City which is followed by a three-game set at Brooklyn.
Next weekend, the Lake Monsters will be at home against Staten Island. Owing to commitments this coming Sunday, I will be unable to provide reports from the games next weekend, and, instead, I will be making a later report during the week.
