For half of Tuesday's game, it looked like the Clinton Lumberkings would extended their win string to six.

But then the Burlington Bees caught fire, stinging Clinton for five runs in the bottom of the fifth inning on their way to a 6-4 Midwest League victory.

Despite the loss, the Lumberkings remained in a tie atop the Western Divison standings with an 11-8 mark.

Burlington got on the board first with a run in the second inning. Anibal Figueroa and Walter Sevilla were both hit by pitches before Kila kaaihue delievered an RBI single up the middle.

Clinton tied the game with a run in the fourth on Larry Grayson's solo homer to left.

The Lumberkings went ahead 3-1 in the fifth. With two outs, Emerson Frostad walked and Andrew Wishy bashed a two run homer to right off eventual winning pitcher Jake Mullis (2-0).

But then things caved in for the visitors. Sevilla was hit by a pitch again to start the bottom of the fifth. Kaaihue followed with a single to left before Cesar Herrera (1-1) belted Brian McFall with a pitch to load the bases. Herrera's four hit batsmen were one short of tying the Midwest League record for a game.

Chris Lubanski then belted an RBI single to centerfield, chasing Herrera in favor of Brian Mattoon. After Mattoon struck out Angel Sanchez. Mitch Maier smashed a grand slam homer to right center field, clearing the bases and putting the Bees ahead 6-3.

Clinton did scratch out one more run in the eighth. Kevin Richardson led off with a double down the left field line and scored on Grayson's single to left center. Kahi Kaanoi then came in to put out the fire. He finished out the game to earn his second save.

Clinton has an off day today, but returns to Alliant Energy Field on Thursday to open a four game homestand against Beloit. Matt Farnum (0-0, 1.80) is slated to take the mound for the Lumberkings.
