With three doubleheaders, seven games were played last night. Clearwater rallied to win the only nine-inning game. Lehigh Valley, Reading, and Jersey Shore each dropped both games of their doubleheaders. Matt Moore made a rehab start.
Clearwater (10-13) beat Jupiter, 4-3. The Threshers fell behind 3-0 and put up a crooked number in the seventh to pull out the win.
Rixon Wingrove got the rally started with a leadoff HR in the seventh. The Threshers then loaded the bases on Ben Pelletier’s double, Baron Radcliff’s walk, and Juan Aparicio’s hit by pitch, still with nobody out. Nicolas Torres tied the game with a two-run double (only one RBI because of a fielding error in the outfield). After a pitching change, Casey Martin brought home the go-ahead run with a sac fly. That was it. (Looks like they tried a double steal that resulted in an out at the plate.
Eduar Segovia (64 pitches, 40 strikes) pitched 3.1 innings and gave up two runs (none earned) on two hits, a walk, and two hit batters. Brendan Bell stranded an inherited runner and got the final two outs of the inning with two strikeouts. Victor Vargas (57 pitches, 41 strikes) picked up his second win. He pitched four innings and allowed one run on five hits. He walked none and struck out five. Tyler Burch picked up his first save with two strikeouts in one inning of one-hit ball.
