The Clearwater Threshers had one final game with the Mets tonight, and sorely needed a win to avoid the four-game sweep. Darren Byrd was back on the hill in a starting role for the first time in 2009, and had a solid outing. Byrd went four innings (pretty standard for a first start) and gave up just one run on three hits.

Th offense certainly helped him out as Derrieck Mitchell got things started with a solo HR in the third to take the Threshers up 1-0. The Mets would answer with a run in the bottom of the third, but Dominic Brown got the first of his two HR in the fourth to send the Threshers up 2-1, and they never looked back.

The score remained 2-1 until the when Dominic Brown crushed his second HR scoring himself and Fidel Hernandez. Hernandez had an excellent night as well going 4-4 in the game.

The bullpen of Walter Tejeda, Josh Mackintosh, and Michael Schwimer took the game the rest of the way giving up just two hits and no runs over the final five frames.

Congrats on the win Threshers!

The team now heads to Ft. Myers, home of the upcoming FSL All-Star Game, for four games before heading home on Sunday for their first game in eight days.

Dominic Brown gets SCHMIDT LIST player of the game award for his 2 HR & 3-RBI effort.
