The Middle of the Threshers Line Up Comes Up Big Again in 5-2 Win Over Brevard County

Not saying the middle of the Clearwater Threshers lineup ranks with the “murderers’ row” of the 1927 Yankees fame but for the Florida State League they rank up there so far in 2016.

If the Threshers are to score it is because of the four, five and six hole hitters,  Kyle Martin watch HERE, Mitch Walding watch HERE and Zach Green, watch HERE.

They accounted for three runs scored and four RBIs going a combined 5 for 10 with a walk in  yesterday’s game  as the Threshers downed the Brevard County Manatees 5-2 at Bright House.

The Threshers have won six in a row and 10 0f 11 to vault into a two game lead in the FSL Northern Division and the best record in the Florida State League at 13-5.

The Threshers version of “murderers’ row” has accounted for all 12 team home runs and 43 runs batted in of the team’s 69 runs scored.

Walding is second in the FSL in homers with five, Martin has four and Green has three long balls so far in April.

Martin leads the FSL in RBIs with 16 and Walding is second with 15.

Also pitching has carried the Threshers this season with a brilliant 1.90 team ERA and the only team with a WHIP under one at 0.96.  Lefty Elniery Garcia leads the League in ERA with at 0.47 and Tom Eschelman leads in WHIP with a 0.53.

Yesterday, it was the shutdown bullpen that was the key to victory as well.

After Will Morris pitched five innings giving up the two runs for the win, Victor Arano,  Alexis Rivero and Miguel Nunez came on throwing mid 90’s heat to close the door.
