Class A Advanced

Sarasota 1 – Palm Beach 0

My kind of game right here.  The only thing that would have made it better had the Reds scored the run in the 9th inning!  Justin Reed’s RBI triple in the 3rd inning scored Justin Tordi to provide this game’s lone run.

Matt Fairel pitched 6.2 scoreless innings, scattering just 3 hits and walking 2 while striking out 4.  The win  bumps his record to 2-3 on the year in Sarasota.  Mace Thurman pitched 1.1 perfect innings, striking out 3 while Aguido Gonzalez allowed 2 hits in the 9th but was able to hold onto his first save of the season.

Single – A

Thomas Nurre went 2-4 with a double and a homerun.  Nurre scored a run and drove in 3.  The homerun was his 4th of the season.  Sean Conner belted his 5th homerun of the season and also added a double in 4 at-bats.  Efrain Contreras and Yorman Rodriguez were also 2-4 in the loss.  In all, the Mustangs collected 10 hits in the loss.

James Walczak and Yen-Wen Kuo combined to throw 2.2 innings of scoreless relief.  The rest of the guys, well, they did not do so well.  Just to note, Kuo plays 2b.
