Dow = Wow

A six-game road trip through Michigan continues today at Dow Diamond in Midland as the Cougars battle the Great Lakes Loons in a three-game series. 

It hasn’t been a great start to the trip for the Cougars, who have dropped their last three in a row after getting swept by the Lansing Lugnuts. Right-hander Kellen Moen goes to the hill today for the Cougars as he looks for his first victory against southpaw Matt Laney.

Here’s today’s lineup from manager Brian Buchanan:

Justin Trapp 2B
Danny Mateo 3B
Michael Antonio DH
Jorge Bonifacio RF
Orlando Calixte SS
Henry Moreno 1B
Tim Ferguson CF
Jin-Ho Shin C
Runey Davis LF
RHP Kellen Moen

Today’s broadcast can be heard on AM 1280 WBIG and http://www.kccougars.com, beginning at 12:50 p.m. with Cougars on Deck. First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. You can email the broadcast (wrandazzo@kanecountycougars.com), write on the Cougars’ Facebook timeline (www.facebook.com/kanecountycougars) or send a tweet (@kccougars; @WayneRandazzo)

If first impressions mean a lot, then Dow Diamond has done a terrific job, making a first impression with a stunning facility here in Midland. One of the most striking visuals is when you enter the press box/suite area, and you see a lot of this:

Nothing like a fireplace to warm up on a chilly April afternoon.
