Clearwater (7-12) beat Florida, 1-0.
Spencer Howard and the Threshers found themselves in an old-time pitchers’ duel last night. Florida’s (an Atlanta affiliate) Hayden Deal (1-1, 1.50) was perfect for five innings. A walk, a force out, and a single set up an RBI double by Nick Maton for the game’s only score in the sixth inning.
Meanwhile, Howard matched Deal scoreless inning for scoreless inning. Howard finally left with two outs and a runner on base in the top of the sixth. Grant Dyer would strand the runner and Howard would finish the night having allowed 4 hits, no walks, and striking out eleven. He was lifted after his 84th pitch.
Dyer (1.64) pitched 1.1 innings, giving up a single, and striking out one.
Jonathan Hennigan (0.000 pitched two innings, striking out four. while picking up his 3rd save.
The Threshers’ trio combined to strike out 16 Fire Frogs.
The Threshers’ offense was little better than the previous might. They collected just 5 hits.
(Sorry for the brevity in this and the other recaps. Finger’s better, company has gone back to PA, but I have a new injury. Won’t affect ability to report but will keep me home a few days. Should be back at the Complex and Bright House next week.)
