Lough called up to big leagues


Former Mercyhurst baseball standout David Lough has been called up to the Major Leagues and will be in uniform tonight when Lough's Kansas City Royals square off against the Oakland Athletics in Oakland, California.

Lough was called up on Friday afternoon by the Royals after center fielder Jarrod Dyson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with an ankle sprain.

The former Laker outfielder was hitting .340 (52-for-153) for the Omaha Storm Chasers, Kansas City's AAA affiliate. Prior to Friday's call-up, Lough had three home runs, three triples, six doubles, five stolen bases, and 17 runs batted in 36 games for Omaha.
