It was the work Alexis Rivero out of the pen who shutdown the Stone Crabs after coming on with no outs and runners on first and second in the sixth inning, that also stood out. Riveros struck out three as he pitched three shutdown innings.  Watch two of his three strikeouts HERE and HERE to gain a come from behind win.

Rivero was helped in part by the great glove work of both Canelo and Martin who made a highlight reel play on a 6-3 ground out to end the eight inning.  Watch HERE.

Emerging as a top prospect closer for the Phillies, former Threshers starter and middle reliever from previous seasons, Miguel Nunez came out for a three up-three down ninth inning.  He relied on an effective slider and 96 MPH fastballs on the “black” to get two strikeouts and pick up his second save of the young season.   Watch HERE.
