Lambin 3 hits and a home run
Chase Lambin pounded out three hits including a two run home run as the Zephyrs came from behind to defeat the Round Rock Express 5-3 in front of 6,976 fans at The Dell Diamond on Monday night. Tom Koehler pitched six innings, allowed two runs and struck-out a career-high 10 batters, earning his first win. Lambin drilled a two run home run in the seventh to give New Orleans a 3-2 lead, and the Z’s tacked on two more in the eighth to win their 15th game in April, second-most in franchise history.
The Zephyrs and The Blood Center have teamed up this week to offer free tickets and a free Zephyrs Koozies for donating blood. The promotion will be for one week only at the Metairie and Laplace locations.
The road trip continues Tuesday in Round Rock, then moves on to Iowa for four games beginning Friday. The Z’s are back home next Tuesday night against the Tucson Padres.
