BURLINGTON, VT -- Kade Keowen went 3-for-5 with three runs and two doubles, while David  Marks went 2-for-3 with a three-run double to lead the Lowell Spinners to an 8-4 victory over the Vermont Lake Monsters in New York-Penn League action Saturday night at historic Centennial Field.

The Spinners led 1-0 when they scored five unearned runs in the fourth inning of Vermont starter Hassan Pena (2-1). The Lake Monsters looked to get out of the inning on a forceout at second base with two outs, but second baseman Jake Rogers was unable to hold onto a throw from  shortstop Dan Lyons to keep the inning alive.

Marks then made Vermont pay for the error with the three-run double for a 4-0 Lowell lead. Ryan Kalish and Pedro Vasquez followed with RBI singles to cap the five-run inning.

Vermont got three runs back in the bottom of the fourth on a two-run double from Craig Stinson, who then scored on a RBI from Rogers. But that was all the offense the Lake Monsters could muster until the ninth inning.

Jose Cappelan (2-0) allowed three runs on seven hits with one walk and five strikeouts over five innings for the victory, while Eammon Portice tossed two hitless innings of relief with three strikeouts for Lowell (7-4). Pena allowd six runs (one earned) on six hits over 4.2 innings for the loss.

Vasquez went 2-for-4 with three RBI, while Kalish was 2-for-4 with two RBI as the Spinners took two of three in the series with Vermont. Rogers, who was 10-for-20 during the six-game homestand for the Lake Monsters, went 3-for-4 with two RBI on Saturday.

NOTES: After Lowell and Vermont combined to score nine runs in the fourth inning on Friday in a 8-4 Vermont win, the teams combined for eight runs in the fourth on Saturday during Lowell’s 8-4 win ... Vermont finished 2-4 on the six-game homestand and is now 5-4 at home to begin the 2007 season ... The Lake Monsters return home on Saturday, July 7th for a three-game series with the State College Spikes, a New York-Penn League affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates ... It will be State College’s first-ever trip to Centennial.
