Potter Notes :

Darick Hall walked and homered … scored twice, he also smoked a one hopper to short right field to the second baseman who threw him out at first, the big fella is swinging it well 💪.

Potter Notes :

Matt Kroon’s home run was his first as a Fightin, his teammates gave him the customary silent treatment, Matt is a very popular member of the team.

Potter Notes :

Lefty Erubiel Armenta can dominate when he’s throwing strikes, the young man has excellent movement on his pitches and mid to upper nineties velocity. The 21 year old from Mexico is one to watch.

Low A Southeast League – Clearwater Threshers (39-49) at Bradenton Marauders (57-33); LECOM Park

Game #1 Final Score

On The Hill (IP-H-R-ER-BB-SO)

RH Eduar Segovia, 1.1-1-0-0-0-2; 23 pitches, 14 strikes

RH Alex McKenney, 2-0-0-0-0-1; 20 pitches, 13 strikes

RH Victor Lopez, .1-2-2-2-1-1; 19 pitches, 13 strikes. LP (0-1)

At Bat (AB-R-H-RBI) held to 3 hits

RF Ethan Wilson, 3-1-1-1, HR (#2)

Potter Notes :

Lefty Matt Osterberg threw extremely well, quick worker, excellent command … only his second outing as a Thresher … Alex McKenney featured a big swooping curve ball as his primary pitch … kept hitters way off balance … velocity on the pitch in high 70’s
