Clearwater (10-13) beat Tampa, 6-3 in ten innings.
Andrew Brown lasted three innings. He gave up 3 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks, and struck out two. He threw 44 strikes in 74 pitches, just under 60%.
Four Threshers’ relievers – Grant Dyer (1.38), Connor Brogdon (2.35), Seth McGarry (5.40), and Austin Ross (3.95) – combined to toss seven innings of no-hit ball. They allowed 2 bases on balls and struck out seven with Ross earning his first save.
The Threshers made up an early 3-run deficit with 2 runs in the fourth on Nick Maton’s 2-run single, and Jose Gomez’ RBI single in the sixth. They opened up a big lead in the tenth on Edgar Cabral’s RBI single, Gomez second RBI single, and an RBI force out.
The Threshers mounted an offensive attack that included 10 hits and 8 walks.
Matt Vierling (.304), Maton, Cabral, and Gomez (.302) had 2 hits each.
Maton and Gomez had 2 RBI each.
Gomez has an 8-game hitting streak. He’s 12 for 28 in that stretch and is hitting .429 with 5 RBI.
With Alec Bohm bucking for promotion, who would get bumped from the Threshers’ line up. Assuming a middle infielder would be at risk (although that’s by no means 100% certain), the least productive infielder is Daniel Brito. He is struggling at the plate (.163/.268/.184/.452) and has made 12 of his 15 starts at second base. I have to believe that a second baseman who can’t hit is of little value no matter how good his glove. Right now, the Threshers are splitting middle infield duties among Brito, Maton, and Guthrie. Bohm could bump Gomez into that mix, positions he’s better suited to play. Of course, with Jhailyn activated, they are carrying 5 outfielders. Perhaps one of those could be bumped. In any case, Bohm would sure look good at third base during the next home stand.
(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.)

JoJo Romero struggled into the fifth inning. He gave up 5 runs (4 ER) on 6 hits and 5 walks. Even with this terrible line, he lowered his ERA from 9.00 to 8.83. Josh Martin (1-1, 4.91) stranded one of two inherited runners but couldn’t complete the sixth inning, giving up 3 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks.
