Recaps for an indefinite period will be a little sketchy. We have guests, a favorite niece and two favorite grandchildren. A favorite daughter arrives this weekend. I find I have little time to do the write up and can’t stay up as late as usual to expand on them. When they all depart toward the end of next week, we are traveling north for a visit that culminates at CBP for the Phantasy Camp reunion game on August 18th against the Mets. The grandkids are pre-teens and my back is already sore after just one day. I opted to go to dinner with the family and missed Crawford’s initial rehab with the Threshers. SMH. I imagine I’ll have more time when I’m in the Paoli area in two weeks. In the mean time, I’m sorry for the expected drop off in content.
The Clearwater Threshers (54-51) lost to Tampa, 5-2. J.P. Crawford went 0-3 with 2 strike outs before being replaced by Jose Gomez. McKenzie Mills gave up 3 runs in five innings on 4 hits and 5 walks with 6 strike outs. Grant Dyer gave up the other 2 runs in one inning of work. The Tarpons were successful on 6 of 7 steal attempts. Five came against Mills. Their one CS was on a pickoff. The offense managed just 4 hits. Pujols and Moniak doubled, Rivas and Cabral singled.
