Clinton Herald

For the second night in a row, the Clinton Lumberkings came back to win.

Ian Kinsler beltred a two run homer in the eighth inning to give Clinton the lead for good in a 3-2 Midwest League victory over Wisconsin Friday night.

The win, Clinton's second in two tries during the young season, came after Wisconsin had opened the scoring in the second inning when Sam Bradford drove in a run on a fielder's choice.

Juan Senrieso's sacrifice fly to right field in the top of the fourth inning tied the game for Clinton.

There was no more scoring until the top of the eighth. A one out single by Casey Benjamin off Brandon Perry set the stage for Kinsler.

Bryan Heaston relieved Perry and Kinsler sent the first delievery off the new hurler over the left field wall to make it 3-2.

The Timber Rattlers rallied for a run in the bottom of the eighth on an RBI single by Wladimir Balentien.

But relief pitcher Gerald Smiley induced an inning ending double play to end the threat and followed with a game ending double play in the ninth.

Besides Kinsler, Dane Bubela sparked the offense with a pair of hits, including a double.

John Danks (1-0), the Rangers top draft pick last year, picked up the win. he worked 2.1 innings of relief, getting five strikeouts in the process.

Smiley pitched the last 1.2 innings for his first save.

Perry (0-1) was tagged with the loss.

The teams finish up their three game set with a 1:05 game today.
