Something about seeing a great effort when you are in the stands. Yesterday was no exception.   For the third straight game that we have been in the stands to watch Elniery Garcia pitch.  He won.  Last season we travel five hours to Savannah, Georgia to watch him beat the Sand Gnats as a Lakewood BlueClaws.

Then several weeks later we drove 12 hours from our home in Dunedin Fl. to Hickory N.C. two watch Garcia spin a seven inning, four hit, shutout win against Crawdads.

Yesterday, we had to walk only three blocks from our house to the Dunedin Blue Jays ballpark to watch Garcia again to throw a shutout to get the win.  This time he pitched 5.1 innings of shutout ball allowing only three hits and striking out five as his Clearwater Threshers downed the arch rival Blue Jays  7-0.  He combined with Jairo Munoz, Joey DeNato and Victor Arano on the three-hit shutout.

Now sporting a 2-2 record after the first series of the season, the Threshers are being paced at the plate by Carlos Tocci, Zach Green and Kyle Martin.  Tocci (.471) and Green (.444) are fifth and eight respectively in the Florida State League in batting averages after four games.   Martin is tied for first in the league with two homers.

Watch Martin’s homer, HERE.  Watch an RBI single by Herlis Rodriguez, HERE. Watch a two-run RBI single by Malquin Canelo. HERE.

The Threshers open a four game home series tonight with the Charlotte Stone Crabs. Tyler  Viza makes his FSL debut for the Threshers.
