RECAP | Otters fall to Crushers in series opener


Avon, Ohio – The Lake Erie Crushers hushed the Evansville Otters to four hits in a 6-0 Crushers win Monday evening.


Evansville was limited to just six total baserunners as Lake Erie starter Kyle Seebach struck out seven Otters’ over five and two-thirds innings of work.


In front of a sellout crowd of over 4,000 fans, Lake Erie struck first with a run in the first. A leadoff base hit and walk led to a run scoring on a fielders’ choice.


The Crushers added three more runs in the second inning with two doubles and a triple.


Evansville starter Zach Smith then found a groove, allowing no hits over the final four innings of his outing. He struck out seven batters in six innings of work.


Lake Erie added a run in each of the seventh and eighth innings.


Jomar Reyes led the Otters offense with two base hits and extended his on-base streak to 24 games.


The Otters and Crushers quickly move on to the series middle game with a Fourth of July 1:05 CT first pitch on Tuesday from Mercy Health Stadium. The Otters broadcast will be carried on the Otters Digital Network and simulcast on FloSports.
