Two morning games at the Complex Tuesday. Clearwater and Lakewood faced the Blue Jays Single A teams at 10:00 AM. Lehigh Valley, Reading, and the short-season group took the long bus ride to Dunedin.I focused on the Lakewood game while Clearwater beat the Dunedin Jays 9-4. Randolph and Jan Hernandez cracked home runs in the win.
Meanwhile on Schmidt Field, Kevin Gowdy, Kyle Young, and Nick Fanti shut out a jays line up that included Beau Bichette and Vlad Guerrero, Jr. for seven innings on their way to a 3-1 victory. Here’s a 4-photo sequence of Gowdy’s delivery.
