Clearwater (3-9) beat Charlotte, 9-4.
Bailey Falter got a lot of support as he held the Stone Crabs to one earned run in 5.1 innings. He struck out six. Falter threw 57 strikes among his 77 pitches (74.0%). A couple of errors allowed the Crabs to score 3 unearned runs in the first inning.
This is a great rebound from Falter’s first appearance when threw 80 pitches (44 strikes), walked 3, and hit a batter. We spoke during the week. He surprised me with his brutal self-analysis of that appearance. One of the problems he identified was his inability to put his FB where he wanted. He expressed his intention to correct this and it appears by his pounding of the strike zone last night that he was successful.
Ismael Cabrera allowed one of two inherited runs to score, trading a run for an out in a 7-3 game.
Tommy Hunter made the trip and made a rehab appearance. He struck out one in 1.1 innings. He allowed a base hit. Blake Quinn allowed 3 base runners in 1.2 scoreless innings.
The Threshers scored 4 runs in the first on RBI singles by Darick Hall and Henri Lartigue. Two more runs scored on a fielding error.
They scored three in the fifth on Austin Listi’s RBI single, Jose Pujols’s fielder’s choice, and Raul Rivas’ RBI single.
They added two more in the seventh on Jose Pujols’ 2-run HR, a late atonement for his 2 errors in the first inning.

Lakewood built an early lead on Dalton Guthries’ RBI single in the second and Gregori Rivero’s 2-run HR in the fourth. After Carrasco and Alcantara relinquished the lead, the Claws tied the game in the eighth on Colby Fitch’s triple and Daniel Brito’s ground out.
