Clinton's furious comeback came up short in a 10-8 setback at Cedar Rapids in Midwest League action Tuesday.

The Kernels shot out to a 10-2 lead through four innings before the Lumberkings made things interesting by tallying three runs in both the fifth and eighth frames.

Matt Brown led the winners as he tripled and knocked in four runs.

Kevin Richardson sparked the LumberKings with a 2 for 4 night at the plate with three RBIs.

The Kernels tallied three runs in the bottom of the first. Brown knocked in one run with a fielder's choice, while Caleb Maher plated two more runs with a triple to right center.

Cedar Rapids made it 5-0 in the second when Sean Rodriguez belted a two run homer to right.

Clinton finally got on the board in the third. Ian Kinsler doubled down the left field line with two out and scored when Dane Bubela bashed a triple to right center.

Cedar Rapids countered with a run in the bottom of the third on Blake Balkcom's RBI groundout.

However, the Kernels put up four runs in the bottom of the fourth. Brown's three run triple sparked the outburst.

In the top of the fifth, Casey Benjamin walked for Clinton, took second on Tobin Swope's single to center and scored on Kinsler's single through the left side. After a double play, Juan Senrieso belted a two run homer to left.

Senrieso and Justin Hatcher opened the eighth with walks before Richardson doubled down the left field line to score both runners. Richardson went to third on a passed ball and scored on Larry Grayson's sacrifice fly.

Abel Moreno (1-0) worked five innings to collect the pitching win. Von Stertzbach worked the final two framed to earn his first save.

Jesse Chavez (1-1) lasted just 2.1 innings for Clinton while suffering the loss.

The teams play the third game of their four game set tonight at 6:30pm. That will be followed by a 6:30 contest Thursday at Cedar Rapids.
