Crushers offense falls silent in 6-1 loss
Lake Erie's offense was shut down by Washington Sunday as the Crushers (9-12) could not complete the sweep, losing 6-1. Winners of three out of its last four games, the common denominator for Lake Erie's success was strong pitching mixing with solid run support. But Sunday, neither was the case.

Fishing for Mudcats: Morimando emerges
Manager David Wallace needs a big bucket, as his fishin' boat is starting to take on water...and a lot of it.
