Still no Y-Rod, but Lohman's back

I'm just taking a quick look at the Mustangs' starting lineup for tonight's finale against Helena, and there's some good news: Shortstop Devin Lohman will return to the field tonight. Lohman, a third-round pick in the 2010 Draft out of Long Beach State, had missed the last few games with an ankle injury but is back at his familiar shortstop spot tonight and will bat sixth.

Mustangs outfielder Yorman Rodriguez, however, will not play tonight ... again. Y-Rod, who still leads the team in RBIs, remains day-to-day with injured ribs and hasn't played since June 29.

Here is the Mustangs lineup for this evening:

1. THEO BOWE - CF
2. BILLY HAMILTON - DH
3. TREY MANZ - C
4. JONATHAN KASKOW - 1B
5. DONALD LUTZ - LF
6. DEVIN LOHMAN - SS
7. SEAN CONNER - RF
8. OLIVER SANTOS - 3B
9. CRISTOBAL RODRIGUEZ - 2B

P - DANIEL TUTTLE (3-1, 3.43 ERA)

Tonight's game is an important one for the Mustangs. They look to win their fifth straight game, close out their first season sweep of the year and climb within one game of first place in the Pioneer League's North division.

But they'll have to do it against Helena starter Hiram Burgos (2-0, 3.52). Burgos threw seven dominant innings in a win against Billings on July 2. Burgos allowed one run on four hits, struck out eight and didn't allow a walk in that game.
