Clearwater Downs Sarasota 9-6 on Saturday

The Threshers offense came out with their bats blazing on Saturday night as the team jumped out to a 9-0 lead after four innings of play. The Reds would make a game of it though as they rallied for six runs in the bottom of the fourth to narrow the gap to 9-6.

The Threshers got things going in the first when Quintin Berry singled to start the game. He moved to second on an out by Adrian Cardenas, then stole third and scored on a wild pitch. Two batters later Gus Milner would crush a solo home run to put the boys up 2-0 after one inning.

In the second inning the bats continued their flurry as the team put up five more runs. Tuffy Gosewisch started the second with a double, and then moved to third on a Fidel Hernandez single. Quintin Berry then walked. With Adrain Cardenas batting all runners would advance on a balk sending Tuffy Gosewisch in for the third run of the game. Adrian Cardenas then walked to reload the bases. Singles by Chris Snelling, Matt Spencer, and a sac fly from Clay Harris would plate four more runs to make it 7-0 after the Threshers second at-bat of the game. The Threshers would tack on two more runs in the fourth inning to up the lead to 9-0, but suddenly the Reds would come rushing back in the bottom of the fourth. A home run three walks, a double and two singles would drive acrosas six runs for the Reds before the inning was over, and suddenly the once insurmountable lead seemed not no insurmountable after all.

The bullpen of the Threshers would shut the Reds down the rest of the way, and the bullpen of the Reds would do the same for the Threshers, but in the end nine still beat six and the Threshers reigned supreme.
