Did Ya Know 🧐 :


Dakota Kotowski is the first Thresher to 20 RBIs in 2024.  Aidan Miller drove in two to overtake him for the team lead at 21. Jordan Viars is the third Thresher with an on-base streak of 15 games this season. Friday’s appearance for Saul Teran was his first of the season without a win or a save.  Kotowski is the first Thresher to homer in back-to-back games this season. All four of his homers for Clearwater have come on the road. - Josh Sperber - Clearwater Threshers Broadcaster
