BROOKLYN, NY - After picking up their 11th straight win on Friday night, the Spinners (20-15) rolled into Brooklyn (19-16) looking to extend their win streak to a dozen and it would take two days to complete the action.

Lowell came hot out of the gate when Devlin Granberg doubled home Jonathan Ortega with one out in the top of the first.

They struck again in the top of the second when Tyler Esplin tripled to lead off the inning. Fellow outfielder Tyler Dearden then grounded out but brought home the run to make it 2-0.

Thad Ward made the start for Lowell and managed to throw three quality innings before the game was suspended for the night due to rain. He surrendered four hits and an earned run with a walk and two strikeouts.

After play resumed on Sunday, Marcus Walden threw 1.2 innings of relief, allowing the tying run on two hits, two walks, and a strikeout.

Hunter Haworth followed with 3.1 innings out of the bullpen. He surrendered one unearned run, a pair of hits, and four strikeouts.

Unfortunately the offense could not muster a tying run as the Spinners would fall to the Cyclones 3-2, snapping the longest win-streak in franchise history.
