Closing out a three-game home stand, the Spinners (27-33) hoped to inch closer to the Vermont Lake Monsters (35-27) atop the Stedler Division. Unfortunately, the Spinners would walk away empty handed.

Jake Thompson got the start for the Spinners but was plagued by a struggling defense. In 1.1 innings of work, allowed four runs (one earned) one walk, one strikeout, and three hits.

Dakota Smith came in to relieve Thompson in the second inning and turned in 4.2 innings of solid relief. He struck out four, walked one, and allowed two runs (one earned).

Brendan Nail made his professional debut in the seventh inning and was lights out. With three strikeouts, he walked none and did not allow any runs.

Devon Fisher closed out the game for Lowell with a perfect ninth inning, striking out one.

The defense surrendered five errors on the evening while the offense mustered only four hits with two apiece from Yoan Aybar and Raiwinson Lameda.

The Spinners now head to the division-rival Tri-City ValleyCats for a three game weekend-series before returning to LeLacheur on Monday, August 28th.
