The Great Lakes Loons starting the second half of the season with their in-state rivals the Lansing Lugnuts would drop a t 4-1 contest tonight at the Dow Diamond.   After winning the the first game after the All-Star break with a walk off 6-5 win the night before the large crowd was pumped up at the Dow.  3,191 fans would come to the "Bark in the Park' night with fans allowed to bring in their canine friends to a professional ballgame. 

However the Loons would fall flat on their faces with the 4-1 loss with only 6 hits on the evening.   Jake Henson and Noah Peri0 each would have 2 hits on the night.   Loons starting pitcher Issac Anderson would pitch a strong 6 innings giving up just 3 earned runs but didn't get any run support.    Great Lakes now stand at 1-1 early in the second half of play.    If the Loons finish in the 1st or 2nd spot in the Midwest League Eastern Division standing on Labor Day they will qualify for the Midwest League playoffs.  

Great Lakes now has their first player from the 2016 draft on their roster.  Darien Tubbs a 16th round draft choice in the 2016 draft might prove to be an exciting player and generate some excitement at Dow Diamond for the 2nd half of the season.  This looks like it will be a long season at Dow Diamond.  Their overall record now stands at 32-44.
