Even a strong wind blowing out toward right field could not help the Burlington Bees Sunday afternoon.

It is hard to take advantage of a jet stream when the bats do not make contact with the balls.

Burlington hitters struck out 12 times and hit just three fly balls in a 3-0 Midwest League loss to the Clinton Lumberkings at Community Field.

The Bees fell to 7-9 while Clinton improved to 9-7. It was the fifth time this season the Bees had been shut out.

"When you only get four hits, it's hard to win games. We've been kind of doing it that way but it's hard to do it consistently." said Burlington manager Jim Gabella, whose team had won four straight home games.

Burlington had an opportunity in the sixth inning. New Lumberkings pitcher Matt Farnum loaded the bases on back to back singles by Angel Sanchez and Bryan Graham and a sacrifice bunt by Adam Donachie. Farnum was not fazed, striking out Adam Keim and getting Kila Kaaihue to hit into a double play.

"When you aren't swinging the bats, you have to produce runs in those situations." Gabella said. "You've got to do whatever it takes to get a fly ball or put the bat on the ball to get a run in, just do whatever it takes. We didn't do that today."

Farnum mowed down the rest of the Bees he faced, including striking out the side in the seventh. The right hander, who earned his first save, retired the last 11 batters he faced in tallying seven strikeouts and allowing just two hits.

Burlington starter Ambiorix Burgos had his best performance of the season despite getting his first loss. The right hander struck out a season high nine in 6 2/3 innings. He gave up his only earned run of the game in the fourth after Dane Bubela walked and moved to second on a wild pitch. Ian Kinsler's ground ball through the left side plated Bubela for the only run Clinton needed.

Graham had two hits fo rthe Bees. Walter Sevilla's hitting streak ended at five games after the second baseman went 0 for 3.

Notes: Left handed pitcher Danny Christensen is out for the remainder of the season after and MRI revealed the Burlington start has a ligament tear in his left elbow. Christensen will undergo Tommy John surgery to fix the tear that he suffered in the second inning of the Bees season opener. Chris Goodman will take Christensen's spot in the rotation... The Lumberkings inches another win away from Burlington in the all time series between the teams. Clintn leads 312-310.
