One night after blasting two home runs to get the Threshers a win in St. Lucie Dominic Brown did not take long to get started on Wednesday as he crushed a two-run shot to put the Threshers up 2-0 in the first inning. From that point it would be a pitchers dual for the next five-and-a-half innings.

The Threshers added just one more hit through the sixth, and the Miracle could not get a run off of the Threshers starte Carlos Monasterios who gave up just two hits in his five innings of work while striking out five.

Manny Ayala relieved Monasterios in the sixth, and the Miracle finally picked up their first run of the game on two hits, a walk and a sac bunt to make the game 2-1 in favor of the Threshers after six.

That is where the game would remain until the bottom of the eighth inning when Sam Walls made his 2009 debut fresh off of the DL. The first hitter he faced tapped a single, but Walls was able to get out of the inning with no damage and the Threshers still winning 2-1.

The offense would go down 1-2-3 in the top of the ninth, and Michael Schwimer came on trying to protect the slim lead and earn his fifth save of the year. Schwimer would grab two quick strikeouts to start things, and induced a ground ball for the third out giving the Clearwater Threshers a two-game winning streak.

Carlos Monasterios & Dominic Brown split the SCHMIDT LIST player of the game award.
