LUGNUTS 5, BEES 4: Late rally isn’t good enough

LANSING, Mich. — The Lansing Lugnuts got to Burlington Bees starter Dylan King early, then had to hold on late for a 5-4 win in Thursday’s Class A Midwest League game at Cooley Law School Stadium.

The Lugnuts scored all of their runs in the first three innings off King (0-1).

Kyle Tyler held Lansing scoreless over the next six innings as the Bees tried to rally.

Burlington got three runs in the fourth. Spencer Griffin scored on a wild pitch. Francisco Del Valle scored on Justin Jones’ triple, then Jones scored on Connor Fitzsimons’ single.

Kevin Maitan’s solo home run got the Bees to within 5-4, but that would be the end of the scoring.

Will McAffer (3-3) was the winning pitcher. Cre Finfrock got the save.

The two teams conclude their three-game series on Friday night.
