INDIANAPOLIS (July 7, 2016) – Kyle Lobstein gave the Indians his best effort, but the Tribe couldn’t hang on as Toledo won, 6-0, on Thursday at Victory Field.
Lobstein awoke this morning in St. Louis on the Pirates’ 25-man roster, but events quickly unfolded that led to him rejoining the Tribe (46-42) in Indianapolis, where he was asked to start in place of the newly-promoted Tyler Glasnow.
The southpaw was brilliant in his outing, scattering three hits over six scoreless frames with four strikeouts.
His efforts were squandered by a big seventh inning for Toledo (38-49). The Mud Hens plated six runs in the frame, including a home run and a double, as they pulled well in front. Curtis Partch (2-1) received the loss for his part in the stanza.
Cory Riordan (1-0) collected his first win of the year thanks to 7.2 innings and 109 pitches of scoreless work.
The Indians will host Toledo on Friday at 7:15 in a celebration of the team’s 20th season at Victory Field.
