LOWELL, MA - The Lowell Spinners, proud affiliate of the 2018 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox, snapped a seven-game losing streak on Saturday night in front of a packed house on Hockey Night at LeLacheur Park downing the Vermont Lake Monsters, Oakland Athletics affiliate, 10-3. Boston Bruins star Charlie Coyle was in the house meeting and signing fans.
Stephen Scott got the party started for Lowell in the bottom of the first inning with a three-run homer to right-center field that cleared the Mill City Environmental sign. Scott started at first and hit in the cleanup spot where he hit his first professional home run and also drove in 4 on the night in a 2-for-4 performance.
Noah Song, Boston Red Sox 4th Round Selection, got his first start at home in front of the Spinners faithful and did not disappoint. Over 3 innings of work he allowed only two hits while striking out a pair. Overall with the Spinners this season he has logged 8 innings of work only allowing 4 hits and 0 runs with 1 walk and 9 strikeouts.
Nick Decker tripled in the bottom of the 4th and was driven in by Antoni Flores on an RBI single that extended the lead to 4-0, at the time. Gilberto Jimenez and Cameron Cannon both recorded doubles in the 5th pushing the advantage for the home team to 5-0.
Lowell opened up the game in the 6th inning when Jimenez hit a sac fly to the fence and the cut-off throw ended up in the home bullpen, blowing the game open at 8-2. Stephen Scott doubled in Jaxx Groshans in the 7th before Decker's RBI single gave Lowell their 10th run of the night.
Yusniel Padron-Artiles picked up the win logging four innings of relief scattering 7 hits and 2 runs while striking out 5. It was the right-handers 7th win of the season.

It's Potter Wizard night as LeLacheur Park is turned into a magical wizarding world with butterbeer floats, the ballpark divided into four different houses and if you're lucky enough to be one of the first 1,000 fans you can score a Joe Kelly Quidditch Bobblehead.
