Riding a six-game losing streak into the series finale against the Renegades (43-21) the Spinners (32-41) put together a late rally to take down Hudson Valley.

Angel Padron put together a solid start for Lowell, striking out four over five innings while allowing a pair of runs (one earned). He also walked one and gave up five hits.

The Spinners got on the board in the bottom of the third when Alexander Martinez led off the inning by reaching on an error. Cole Brannen then picked up his first hit for Lowell with a triple to center field, tying the game at one.

Trailing 2-1 in the bottom of the seventh, Martinez got the inning started by getting hit by a pitch. Brannen then reached on an error before Everlouis Lozada tied the game up with an RBI-signle.

The rally continued into the eighth inning when Kervin Suarez, Nick Hamilton, and Charlie Madden loaded the bases with one out. Martinez then grounded into a force out but managed to beat the throw to first, allowing Suarez to score the go-ahead run.

Durin O'Linger closed out the game with four innings of relief. He struck out five, allowed two hits, no walks, and no runs en route to picking up his fourth win of the season.

The final series of the season begins Wednesday, September 6 with division-rival Vermont coming to town. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.
