After winning the Baseball Ross Phillies minor league “Pitcher Of The Month” award for April, Seranthony Dominguez had another quality start on May Day to improve his record to 3-0.
Dominguez now leads the Florida State League in strikeouts and WHIP.
After giving up two runs on a couple of doubles and walks in the first inning, he went on and pitched five innings of shutout ball in the Thresher 7-3 win over the Miami Marlins farm team, the Jupiter Hammerheads.
Dominguez struck out six, relying on his 96-97 mph fastball early and his off speed pitches later in his outing. Watch his six strike “threes” HERE.
Catcher Deivi Grullon’s three-run homer into the Threshers bullpen iced the game in the fifth inning, watch HERE. It was his third homer of the season. He has hit safely in his last six games going 8 for 28 with two homers and six RBIs. Currently, he has his highest batting average .270 and OPS .699 of his career if the season were to end today.
The Threshers have relied on the long ball to generate offense. In the last four games they have gone deep nine times including two bases empty long balls by Emmanuel Marrero and Mark Laird last night in the third inning. The Threshers lead the Florida State League hitting 26 home runs in 25 games.
The Threshers are now 17-8 with the best record in the Florida State League and tied for the best record in Advanced A.
