Clearwater (21-27, 57-57) beat Dunedin, 5-1. Jose Taveras was imported from Pennsylvania to provide a start for the Threshers. Taveras stymied the Blue Jays batters for most of his seven innings. He relied on command to keep the young Dunedin hitters off balance with his sub-90 stuff. He scattered six hits, walked a batter, and struck out three. The only run came on a solo HR with two outs in the seventh. Austin Ross pitched two scoreless innings for his 4th save.
Clearwater scored a run in the second on Nick Maton’s RBI single. The remainder of their runs came on the long ball. Simon Muzziotti launched a solo HR (3) to right in the fifth. Dalton Guthrie blasted a solo HR (4) to left in the seventh. And, Luke Miller crushed a 2-run HR to left center in the eighth.
There were several nice defensive plays behind Taveras that won’t show up in a box score.

- a 4-3 DP courtesy of the shift and Nick Maton/Matt Kroon
- an extra base saving catch by courtesy of RF Simon Muzziotti
- an outfield assist at third by CF Jhailyn Ortiz on a ball off the left-center field wall that Ortiz picked up and threw to SS Guthrie who relayed to 3B Luke Miller who kept the tag on the foolish batter who made the third out at third base. Looked to me that he came off the bag briefly and an aggressive slide and miller kept the glove on him.
