Uhl Pounds The Ironmen
Ryan Uhl went 4-for-4 and hit his first home run of the season to lead the BlueSox to a 10-1 blowout over
the Lorain County Ironmen on Tuesday evening at the KAP.
Butler took advantage of a pair of errors to send ten hitters to the plate in the first. Stuart Levy doubled
in the Sox' first run of the game and Uhl followed with a 2-run ground ball single up the middle that helped Butler jump out
to a 4-0 lead. Butler had five of their 15 hits in the inning.
The offense continued with four consecutive hits in the third. Zac LaNeve and Taylor Schmidt each singled
in a run after Uhl doubled and Forrest Perron reached on a line drive single to center.
Uhl kicked off the BlueSox third big inning in the fifth with a leadoff home run. Just the second BlueSox'
home run of the season, the drive to left-center easily cleared the 385-foot fence. LaNeve and Schmidt drew back-to-back walks
and Jeff Revesz knocked them both in with a double. Ryan Hanahan followed with another double to score Revesz and put the
game completely out of reach.
Uhl finished with a walk, two singles, a double, home run, two runs scored, and three RBIs. LaNeve, Schmidt,
and Stuart Levy each had two hits, a walk, run scored, and an RBI.
Having struck out seven over five innings of work, Denis Lyman exited the game after the score got out of
hand. Collin McKee and Ryan Hanahan mopped up the remaining innings with just as strong of performances, combining for seven
more Ks and just a single walk over the final four innings.
The win keeps Butler atop the Eastern Division as they head into a four game road trip to Champion City and
