The Clearwater Threshers (33-36) beat Dunedin, 5-4. Connor Seabold was perfect thru his first five innings. He gave up 3 singles to load the bases to start the sixth, and a couple runs scored on a sac fly and a ground out. He retired the final 6 batters he faced. He finished with no walks and 6 strike outs. Jakob Hernandez (3.31) struck out 2 in a one-hit inning. Addison Russ made his first appearance and was a little amped. He was throwing 93-95 but not with his normal command. He gave up a two-run HR and left with the bases loaded and two out. Aaron Brown (5.51) got the final out and his 3rd save.
The Threshers got a run in the third on a pop, RBI single by Edgar Cabral when with two out, Adam Haseley busted it from first base. The ball should have been caught with three fielder’s around it. I’m sure that it was touched by one of them. After Seabold was touched for 2 runs in the sixth, the Threshers stormed back with three of their own in the bottom of the inning on Cabral’s RBI double, Kyle Martin’s RBI double, and Henri Lartigue’s RBI single. The Threshers tacked on an important insurance run in the eighth on Luke Williams’ two-out, RBI triple.
Haseley (.292), Cabral (.264), and Lartigue (.266) had 2 hits each. Jose Pujols is still hovering over .300.
Seabold throws a fastball, splitter, change up, curve ball, and a cutter (a recent addition to his arsenal). He threw 87 pitches, 63 for strikes (72.4%). Four of his Ks came swinging. He got a total of 12 swinging strikes. He got one miss on a K at 95 mph. The other 11 misses came on pitches from 82 to 86 mph. He got 19 called strikes, most on his FB (16). His FB was 90-95 mph and sat 91-93 mph. He threw 18 of 24 first pitch strikes (75%), had one three-ball count, and had a game score of 76.
I guess it’s finally out that Mickey Moniak had impacted wisdom teeth removed earlier this week. The condition had been causing his severe migraines. Hopefully, he’ll be returning to action soon. He took BP this afternoon.
