The Clearwater Threshers’ Roster Takes Shape In 2-1 Win

It looks like the Phillies Florida State League’s High A team, the Clearwater Threshers, will have a strong pitching staff but scoring runs might be another matter.  On Wednesday afternoon, the future Threshers downed the Detroit Tigers’ High A team 2-1 on Ashburn Field. They managed only four hits in the win.

Darick Hall

Austin Listi

 

 

The Threshers strong pitching made two early runs stand up in the game.  After the Tigers put a run on the scoreboard in the top of the second, Darick Hall  and Austin Listi hit back to back singles and Hall scored on a sacrifice fly by Luke Williams. Watch the base hits by Hall and Listi HERE.

Mickey Moniak

After a single by Mickey Moniak in the bottom of the third he worked his way to third and scored on a wild pitch for the second run.  Watch Moniak’s single HERE.

Adonis Medina

It was the five inning pitching of starter Adonis Medina, who gave up four hits and a run,  that was the difference to get the win.  He struck out five, including four called strikeouts, in his start.  Watch his strikeouts HERE.

Jakob Hernandez

Jakob Hernandez would come on in the sixth and pitch two shutout innings, striking out two.  See HERE. According my unofficial stats, he has struck out 14 in the 7.1 innings of shutout baseball with no walks in the minor league games I have seen him pitch this spring.

Ismael Cabrera

Blake Quinn came on in the eight and pitched a shutout inning. Ismael Cabrera closed it out in the ninth for the save. Watch Cabrera’s strikeout HERE.

It’s expected that the lineups for Wednesday’s games for the two A ball games will makeup most of the rosters to start the season of the Threshers and Lakewood BlueClaws. Thursday is a camp day as the staff is expected to meet to finalize the opening day rosters for the four Phillies farm teams.
