The Vermont Lake Monsters wrapped up their home season with a 4-2 victory over the Lowell Spinners (box/gamer). Cole Kimball and two relievers combined on a three-hitter.

Kimball struck out eight over five innings allowing only one run on one hit and three walks. Alberto Tavarez pitched the next two innings surrendering a run on two hits and two walks, while striking out two. And, Edulin Abreu picked up his third save of the season with two scoreless/hitless innings of relief, walking and striking out two, LF Boomer Whiting was 1/3 with a triple, two runs scored and a stolen base. It was Whiting’s sixth stolen base in his last nine games and his league-leading 34th of the season. DH Garrett Bass was 2/3 with a double, stolen base and three RBI. Bass has six RBI over his last three games. 3B Anthony Benner was 1/3 with a double and is hitting 314/407/431 in his 17 games since the All-Star break. The win evened Vermont’s record at 36-36 with three games left on the schedule. If Vermont can win two out of their final three games, the Lake Monsters will join the Potomac Nationals and the DSL Nationals1 as Nationals’ affiliates with above 0.500 records.
