The Threshers Pitching Was Strong Last Night With Suarez, Hammer and the No-hitter By Arauz Standing Out In the Sunday’s Doubleheader

One thing about the Phillies organization is that it has a lot of strong pitching,  A Clearwater Threshers Sunday doubleheader split in the seven inning games was no exception against the Ft. Myers Miracle.

The starter in the first game was Ranger Suarez and he retired the first 12 batters he faced in four innings of work. See his six strikeouts HERE.

JD Hammer

The rains came in the fifth causing a lengthy delay and Suarez was replaced by just acquired J.D. Hammer. When action resumed  J.D. allowed an inherited run to score in the fifth inning in an otherwise clean two innings.  Watch the Hammer strikeout HERE.

The lack of offense is nothing new to the Threshers who were shutout in the first game 4-0.

The closest they came to scoring was a base hit by the hot Jan Hernandez but Zach Green was thrown out at the plate after attempting to score from second on the Hernandez single.

Hernandez now has hit safely in eight straight games including three home runs in that span.  Watch his base hit and Green’s double HERE.

But apparently that was too much hitting for the experts in  Phillies minor league department.  Jan was benched in the second game and did not play.

In the second game the Threshers Harold Arauz  pitched a seven inning no-hitter allowing only a walk in the seventh inning.  He made the two runs scored by Zach Green stand up. Zach scored, after he hit a triple, on an RBI single by Jose Pujols in the second inning. After his base hit in the sixth, Zach moved around the bases to score on a bunt single by Austin Bossart for the 2-0 win.
