Kernels Come Back Late to Top LumberKings
The Kernels had to overcome a good performance from Clinton pitcher Clyde Sanders to claim a 5-3 win at Ashford University Field. Sanders went 5 innings and allowed 2 earned runs. Fred Stephens notched his 3rd save in 6 chances. Cedar Rapids is 74-64 and Clinton, with the loss, 66-72.

Cedar Rapids used the timely hitting of Josh Watson to capture the win. The catcher socked a bases-clearing double in the top of the eighth inning to put the Kernels ahead, 5-3. It was his only hit in 3 at-bats, but it was an important one.

"We put it together today and came out with the win," Watson said in postgame remarks. "That's the main thing."
