Clearwater (11-18) lost to Daytona, 10-1.
This was never really much of a game. Andrew Brown (1-3, 9.53) surrendered 5 runs in the first two innings on 8 hits. He walked one and struck out one. He threw 57 pitches in two ineffective innings.
Austin Ross (4.96) kept the turtles at bay for a couple innings, but gave up 3 runs in his third inning. His line was 2.2 IP, 4 hits, 3 runs, and a walk. Keylan Killgore (3.00) stranded both base runners he inherited, but gave up 2 runs in the 2.1 innings he pitched. Zach Warren (4.70) pitched the final two scoreless innings.
The Threshers scored their lone, late run on a ground out in the seventh inning. They collected 11 hits and 4 walks, but couldn’t mount any sort of scoring attack. They were 1-9 with RISP, and that hit didn’t score a run. They had a scoring opportunity in the third inning, but with runners on first and second, a ground single to left resulted in an out when Alec Bohm rounded second base aggressively and was caught off base by the cut off. He hasn’t been here long enough to know we go station to station in the FSL.
Simon Muzziotti had 3 hits. Madison Stokes (.293) had 2 hits. Daniel Brito had 3 hits to raise his average to .200. But, he made a poor play in the second inning that played a big part in the opponents 4-run inning. The lead off batter, a guy with no power (23 hjits, 2 doubles), tried to bunt and failed. When he fell behind 1-2, he tried to slap a couple balls with half swings that both dribbled foul. He finally pulled one past the pitcher. It was hit so softly that you wouldn’t even count its progress by bounces. It just rolled softly out to Brito who took a couple steps in and then just waited. And waited. The ball finally reached him and his throw was late by about a quarter hour.
So, instead of the first out, Brown has to deal with a guy dancing off first base who drew 4 throws. He broke twice for second, but the batter fouled off both pitches. Brown ended up throwing 31 pitches that inning.
Still, Brown was not very effective. Even though he threw strikes at a 66.7% rate (38/57), Brown pitched from behind a lot (7 of 14 first pitch strikes). And when he got ahead, he got hit hard, 4 of the 8 hits he gave up went for extra bases.
Brown’s fastball sat 90-92 and touched 94 mph once.
