The Lansing Lugnuts beat Michigan State 10-2 Wednesday night in the annual Crosstown Showdown exhibition baseball game at Cooley Law School Stadium. Blaise Salter's two run double scored both MSU runs in the third inning and cut the Spartans' deficit to 3-2, but they could get no closer. The game does not count in any standings. The Lugnuts lead the series 5-2. The Spartans host Illinois at 3pm Friday to begin a three game series.
