    Game 43

    Columbus 5 Toledo 3
    Toledo Mud Hens(Detroit) 28-14 @ Columbus Clippers(Cleveland) 21-21

    The big news here wasn't that the light hitting Clippers pounded out 11 hits, or they continue to strike out at an alarming rate(13 times tonight) or that they beat first place Toledo again. The big news was Stephen Fife actually threw a decent game. He was charged with two runs, when a struggling Robert Zarate(3.77ERA) gave up a hit and allowed both inherited runners to score. Fife lowered his high ERA down to (6.46)

    Yandy Diaz had 3 hits and 2 RBI to lead the offense for Columbus.
    Brandon Barnes had 3 hits and drove in one.
    Eric Haas drove in 1 with his 4th homer of the season.
    Mike Papi had the other RBI for Columbus.

    Jim Adduci(.310) had to hits and drove in 2 for Toledo.
    Ronny Rodriguez and Chad Huffman each had a hit. Both former Clippers continue to torment their former team.

    Stephen Fife (W, 3-4) 6.46 ERA
    Kyle Dowdy (L, 1-1) 3.60 ERA
    Matt Belisle (S, 1) 0.00 ERA

    Game 44
    Jupiter Hammerheads(Miami)29-16 @ Bradenton Marauders(Pirates) 24-20

    The Hammerheads played one in the first, when Joe Dunand singled to drive in Anfernee Seymour. Seymour had singled and picked up his 7th steal of the season.
    1-0 After 1/2 inning of play.

    Bradenton locked thing back up in the bottom of the first, on a Jared Oliva (5) homer.

    Things stayed tied at one, until the bottom of the fourth.
    Albert Baur doubles (7) to lead off the inning and then a walk to Alfredo Reyes. put two on with zero out. After a sac bunt by Hunter Owen,Jason Delay doubled (1) to make this a 3-1 game.
    Lucas Tancas singles to put runners on the corners.
    Casey Hughston hits a ground-rule double (4) and this was a 4-1 game.
    Jared Oliva singled to make it 5-1 game. Then he steals (11) 3rd base.
    Tyler Gaffney triples (3) to make it a 7-1 game.

    Bradenton tacks on five in the bottom of the fifth and this was a 12-1 blowout in making.
    Hunter Owen singles and that was followed by a double off of the bat of Jason Delay(2).
    Lucas Tancas doubles (4) and it was a 9-1 game.

    The Hammerheads get one more run back in the 7th to make it a 12-3 game.The run scored on a Joe Dunand single.

    Besides the big offensive night by the Marauders, one should not forget the job starting pitcher Luis Escobar put in. He struck out six in six innings. He allowed four hits but did give up three walks and 2 earned runs. The big part of this he might have got his strike out groove going again.

    12-3 Final, Bradenton win.

    Daniel Castano (L, 4-5) 6.04 ERA

    Game 46
    Washington Wild Things(Independent) 3 Florence Freedom(Independent) 1

    I made the drive to Washington to watch this one in person, and for the most part it was a good game. Game conditions was 72 cloudy to start and then for the later part of the game, it was rain, rain and more rain.

    The Freedom took a 1-0 lead int he top of the fourth, on a Craig Lepre base hit. He had two hits and raised his average to .250.

    The Wild Things got a two run bomb(40 from Kyle Pollock(Clinton, Ohio) to take a 2-1 lead, after four innings.

    The last run came in the bottom of the seventh and it was scored, when James Harris doubled. Harris had two hits and now has a .278 average.

    Three errors really hurt the Freedom in this one.

    WP-Daniel Garmendia 1-1
    LP-Christian DeLeon 0-1
    SV-Zach Strecker 5 (Louisville Kentucky)
    Wild things win

    Game 47

    Washington Wild Things(Independent) 5 Florence Freedom(Independent) 4

    The Freedom can thank the bullpen for this loss.
    In all the Freedom bullpen threw two innings, allowed five hits(The starter gave up one hit). 4 runs were charged to the pen along with two walks.

    Florence took a 3-0 lead after their first at bat.
    Connor Crane double and a error allowed Brandon Pugh to score,to make it 1-0.
    A 2nd error on the play allowed Crane to score and this was a 2-0 game.
    Andre Mercurio worked a walk.
    Xavier Turner got a RBI on a ground out and this was a 3-0 game.

    Florence made it 4-0 after they hit in the sixth inning.
    Austin Wobrock, who hit ninth in the order had three hits on the day along with one RBI. His RBI came in the sixth to make it 4-0.

    After starter Zach Kirby left the game, the score was 4-0 after six innings.
    From their the Freedom bullpen gave this game away.
    In the seventh inning Kyle Pollock blasted a solo homer(5) to make it 4-1.
    Reydel Medina made it 4-2 with a RBI single.

    In the home half of the eighth the dust wood not settle, until three more runs had been scored.
    James Harris walked to lead off the inning.
    Carter McEachern singled and took 2nd, when the throw went to third, where Harris was safe.
    Roman Collins tripled to lock things up at four.
    Kyle Pollock would get a double that scored Collins to make this a 5-4 Washington lead. And that would also be the final score.

    5-4 Washington.

    River City Rascals(11-6) at Florence Freedom(Independent) 8-10

    Quick start by the Freedom and then again the bullpen and horrible defense allows this one to slip away. In the process the Freedom have now dropped seven games in a row.

    Florence scores single runs in the first three innings to go up 3-0.
    Jose Brizuela blasted homers in the first and third innings(3&4)and sandwiched in between was a RBI single by Craig Lepre.

    River City would score twice in the fourth, to make this a 3-2 game.
    Gerrion Grim and Zach Lavy had the RBI.

    The Freedom added a run in the fifth on a Connor Crane single to make this a 4-2 game.

    River City would plate three runs in the sixth and then hold on for the win.
    Mike Jurgella singled to start things off and then a double by Clint Freeman. put two on with zero outs.Gerrion Grim knocked in the first run. Zach Lavy base hit plated the 2nd run of the inning. An error allowed the winning run to score.

    Andre Mercurio singled in the eighth but Jose Brizuela was thrown out trying to score and then Mercurio was thrown out trying to take 2nd.

    Game 54
    River City Rascals(Independent) 6 Florence Freedom(Independent) 5 10 inning

    I was at this one
    Eight straight loses by the Freedom.
    Like the night before and just like last night the Freedom had the lead, when the starter left(Jordan Kraus/Lakewood, Ohio)then the bullpen gave up 4 hits in 4 innings,allowed 2 runs 1 earned run and allowed 2 inherited runners to score. Third baseman Mike Morris/Cincinnati, Ohio originally was given two errors but later it was changed to just one as the defense continues to struggle, especially in the late innings.

    The Rascals got single runs in the first two innings. The first came on a Braxton Martinez fielders choice. The 2nd came on a Connor Oliver single.

    The Freedom would respond with five in the third, to take a 5-2 lead.
    Jose Brizuela, who had two more hits tonight scored on a wild pitch and then a Keivan Berges locked things up at two. A three run bomb from, Jacob Wark (1) game the Freedom a 5-2 lead.Wark would strike out twice, the 2nd time with the tying run on base to end the game. The 6-4 230 pounder looks like he is trying to hit the ball 500 feet every time he swings the bat.
    The Rascals would score the games final four runs to post the win.
    In the seventh they would score two, on a Clint Freeman double.
    Then they tied thing up in the eighth on a Dylan Woods ground out. The winning run scored on a Paul Kronenfeld double.

    Game 55

    Fort Myers Miracle(Twins) 22-31 @ Fort Myers Miracle 22-27
    The Miracle had been hitless through four innings but that's when they used a walk to Taylor Grzelakowski and then a double, the teams first hit by,Jimmy Kerrigan(14th) to take a 1-0 lead.
    Mets pitch Jimmy Kerrigan has been a tad bit wild with 3 base on ball through five innings. He does have four strikeouts on the day.

    The Mets have only one hit heading to the seventh inning.
    With one out in the seventh,Michael Paez homers (5) to lock this one up at one.

    Fort Myers plate two in the eighth, to take a 3-1 lead.
    Stephen Nogosek comes in to pitch for the Mets. He strikes out pinch hitter Mark Contrera. Then he had back to back walks to Caleb Hamilton and Luis Arraez.
    That brought on Brandon Lopez, who doubled(5) to score one. A pass ball by Dan Rizzie (Xavier) let another run score.

    3-1 Miracle post the win.
