Are the Lugnuts laughing after that 5-0 defeat?
No, probably not.
I'm in a good mood, though.
There was no Lugnuts offense whatsoever, there was embarrassing umpiring, and there was an awesome tape-measure home run by Fort Wayne's Jason Hagerty. What can you do after a game like that except laugh, shrug your shoulders, and head to bed?
This wasn't a heartbreaker. This was a thrashing. Tip your cap to the TinCaps and come back tomorrow.
Fort Wayne is now 8-4 against the Lugnuts this year, winning seven of the last nine meetings. Are they a good team? Hey, they're not bad. Probably as good as Kane County. They just own the Lugnuts right now, pure and simple. Jason Hagerty looks like a superstar. Nate Freiman is roping line drives all over the place.
Hey, nine more games to go against the Padres farmhands. We'll see if anything changes.
