Rain is falling here at Cooley Law School Stadium, but the tarp is not yet on the field as the Kane County Cougars and Lansing Lugnuts are hoping to play the first of a three-game series.
Once they do, the Cougars will be starting a six-game road trip through the State of Michigan. Right-hander Aaron Brooks (2-1, 5.87) will start against fellow righty Jesse Hernandez (1-1, 1.47).
Here’s the starting lineup from manager Brian Buchanan:
Justin Trapp DH
Danny Mateo 2B
Michael Antonio 3B
Lane Adams CF
Orlando Calixte SS
Murray Watts 1B
Tim Ferguson LF
Edul Escobar C
Runey Davis RF
RHP Aaron Brooks
When the contest starts, it will be on AM 1280 WBIG and http://www.kccougars.com as the Cougars are coming off a 3-3 homestand with a 10-9 record so far this season. They are just one game out of first place in the MWL West Division behind 11-8 Quad Cities.
