Three is Clinton’s magic number
The Clinton LumberKings scored three runs in the third inning, and that’s all they needed last night, defeating the Bees 4-2 on Fireworks Friday.
Jeff “Howl for” Howell drove in both Bees runs and hit a solo shot in the ninth inning.
Your Bees and the L-Kings play here at 6 tonight. We’re giving away Luke Hochevar posters, sponsored by Doran & Ward Printing. It’s Educator Appreciation Night. All school employees are encouraged to celebrate the end of the school year here: free admission with school I.D. at the main gate. It’s also Long John Silver’s/A&W Friends and Family Night Saturday.
