The Threshers tied the game in the first inning with a run that scored on a fielding error.  They took the lead in the second on Marcus Lee Sang’s RBI double.  Felix Reyes provided breathing room with a 3-run HR in the sixth.  They continued to tack on runs in the seventh on Aldrem Corredor’s RBI single and in the eighth on a wild pitch and a ground out.

  1. Marcus Lee Sang getting hot: .316/.357/.395/.752. Like to see a little more power but hit the ball for now. I think the power will come.

    1. I agree. His past seasons show he has hit HRs at a decent clip (per ABs) and most reports say he has good “pop”. Its still early. His Average, RBIs , Runs, SB, are similar to Sanchez but without the 2 HR but 13 AB less. They also don’t bat him high enough in the order to produce the numbers he has so he must have a really high average with runner in scoring position. Him and Sanchez have been the most consistent hitters on the Threshers so now. Will be an interesting summer if they both keep hitting as outfielders cause I doubt they can push both up and get them ABs at JS with highly rated Rojas and Ethan Wilson there. I imagine they will want make room for Viars up if he is dominating FCL

      Painter has been so dominant that I don’t think the stays with the Thresher after this road trip. They might send him up to join Abel to form a dominant SP duo. Jersey Shore will be really good this summer.

  2. Said this last week, but how cool of a story would it be if Appel gets a shot in the bigs this year? He seems to be earning it, small sample size of course but if he settles in to a bullpen role and isnt walking guys, it would be cool to see.

  3. Jadiel Sanchez and Johan Camargo, both switch-hitters, have very alike batting stances from the left side of the plate.
