Slow day after Saturday’s seven games. Another losing day, one win, 2 losses, and a postponement. Clearwater and Jupiter pitched shutout ball through nine innings, then the teams combine for 5 runs in the Threshers’ overtime victory. Lehigh Valley lost a rain-shortened, six-inning game. Reading was subdued on 2 hits. And, Jersey Shore was rescheduled to a June date.
Clearwater (11-13) beat Jupiter, 3-2 in ten innings. Ironically, regulation time ended in a 0-0 tie. All runs were scored in extra time.
The Threshers first two base runners reached via walks in the first and third innings. Both were picked off. They got their first hit in the fifth inning. Going into the tenth, the Threshers had accumulated 5 walks, a hit batter, and 2 hits. A walk and the ghost runner put two guys on base. Nicolas Torres’ double brought both runners home. He scored on an error on a missed catch error on the relay. It was needed as the Dash scored twice in the bottom of the inning.
Starlyn Castillo pitched five innings and needed just 54 pitches, 35 strikes. He allowed 2 hits and struck out two. Rafael Marcano (49 pitches, 34 strikes) pitched four, two-hit innings.
