The Clearwater Threshers (26-32) lost to Daytona, 6-5.
Mauricio Llovera (4.02) pitched six solid innings last night. He allowed one run on 5 hits and a walk. He struck out seven. The bullpen failed to hold the lead. Blake Quinn (4.15) blew the save in one inning, giving up 3 runs on 2 hits and a hit batter including a HR before recording an out. J.D.Hammer (0-1, 3.38) made his second appearance and was charged with an ER and an unearned run in 1.2 innings as the Tortugas walked off.
The Threshers scored plenty of runs on 10 hits and 2 walks, but only went 1-9 with RISP. They opened the scoring in the first inning with solo HRs to center field by Arquimedes Gamboa (1) and Austin Listi. They opened a three-run advantage with 2 runs in the fifth on Listi’s 2-run HR (8). And they took a short-lived lead in the ninth when they loaded the bases with nobody out and scored just one run on a walk.
Haseley (.289), Gomez (.233), and Listi (.353) had 2 hits each.
Apparently Mickey Moniak may have injured himself on a swing the night before last. He was held out of last night’s game. This type of event is often an oblique. I saw Kelly Dugan felled by an oblique in 2013 ST. He missed the first 3 weeks of the season. He missed 7 weeks the following year in Reading with the same injury. So, is Moniak does have an oblique, he may be sidelined until late July. However, I’ve heard nothing official yet.
Gamboa flew out to end the second inning and was replaced in the field the next inning. No word why, but the start of the game was delayed due to wet conditions.

Lakewood (34-25) lost to Hagerstown, 3-1.
Kyle Young pitched 7.2 innings and was charged with 3 runs on 6 hits and a walk. He struck out four. Luis Carrasco (4.15) entered with a runner on base and allowed him to score before retiring the final out of the inning.
Lakewood’s only run came on Jhailyn Ortiz’ solo HR (3) in the first inning. They managed just 2 hits the rest of the game. Fifteen BlueClaws struck out. Scheiner, Brito, Stobbe (his first game since coming off the DL), and Duran struck out 3 times each, a combined 0-13 with 2 BB, a sacrifice, and 12 K. Ouch!
Kevin Markham had an outfield assist at home.
Young had never pitched into the eighth inning in his career. He completed seven innings for the first time in his career in his last appearance. He entered the eighth having thrown 80 pitches and walked the third batter on four pitches after getting two ground outs. The next batter doubled and that was the end of his night. He finished with 91 pitches. I mention all this because Young spent the first 6 weeks rehabbing in XST and this was just his fourth start of the season. Seems a little ambitious to me.
- #5 Jhailyn Ortiz (.250): went 1-4 with a run scored, RBI, HR (3)
- #11 Daniel Brito (.227): went 0-3 with a BB
- #18 Kyle Young (1-3, 2.45): 7.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
- #20 Spencer Howard (3-4, 5.17):
- #27 Simon Muzziotti (.293): 7-day DL (hand injury, in Clearwater)
- #30 Nick Maton (.265): went 0-3 with a BB
