LOONS BATTER BANDITS IN OPENER: Every Great Lakes Loons batter contributed at least one of the team’s 18 hits in a 10-6 victory Sunday afternoon. Quad Cities left-hander Colton Cain allowed six straight hits to start the fourth inning and allowed the first four Loons runs. After the River Bandits closed within 4-3, the Loons scored three times in the eighth and three in the ninth to extend the lead to 10-3. Quad Cities scored three times in the ninth to fall 10-6. Every starter on each team had a hit, with the exception of River Bandits shortstop Carlos Correa, who reached on two hit-by-pitches and scored twice.
TRIPLE PLAY NOTES: The River Bandits turned their first triple play in six seasons in the second inning Sunday against Great Lakes. With no outs and runners at first and second base, Dashenko Ricardo hit a ground ball to third baseman Rio Ruiz, who stepped on third base, threw to second baseman Austin Elkins for a force out, and Elkins’ relay to first baseman Miles Hamblin completed the 14th triple play in franchise history and first since June 16, 2007, when Quad Cities also turned a 5-4-3 triple play on a ground ball by Beloit’s Danny Valencia, just 16 days after the Swing of the Quad Cities turned a triple play on a line drive against Clinton. The 14 triple plays are the most all-time in the Midwest League.
