The Wolfpack dropped their second and final game with the Dukes on Thursday night, losing by a score of 4-2.
Cory Lawson got the start on the mound for the Pack and pitched well enough to win. He held the Dukes to three runs over six solid innings and left it up to the offense, but they weren’t able to give Cory the support he needed to earn his first career victory as a member of the Wolfpack.
The bats were able to find holes all night, as the Pack out hit the Dukes twelve to ten, but abysmal baserunning mistakes all night cost them their scoring chances, and ultimately led to the loss.
Fraser Armstrong continued his strong month at the plate with two more hits, and Trent Lawson looks to be regaining his early season form with three hits of his own. Ray Tamayo also contributed two hits, and Matt Zanutto had a solid day at the plate going 1-1 with a triple and two walks.
The Wolfpack play two games against the second place Diamondbacks on Saturday morning before they host the FMBA Home Run Derby starting at 3pm.
