Cedar Rapids, IA – The Cedar Rapids Kernels allowed a season-high 14 hits as Lake County plated multiple runs in four different frames in a 12-4 loss on Saturday evening. Lake County scored three in the third and fourth, four in the sixth and two in the eighth as part of their 12-run outburst as the Kernels struggled to limit damage. Cedar Rapids’ lead in the West Division has been trimmed to a single game as the Kernels record falls to 25-13.

Will Holland belted a two-run home run in the third to respond to Lake County’s three spot in their half, but the Captains tacked on three more in the next inning.

Kyler Fedko and Seth Gray smacked back-to-back doubles in the sixth after a Captains four-run frame. Lake County would add two more in the eighth, followed by a Gray RBI single in the bottom half.

Brad Hanner, Miguel Rodriguez and Tyler Palm combined to work 4.0 scoreless relief innings for the Kernels.
