The Clearwater Threshers Go Down 5-4 to the Lakeland Flying Tigers Despite the Hot Bats of Haseley, Listi, Hall and Lartigue

The Clearwater Threshers are now 3-8 in one-run games this season.  They were downed 5-4  by the Lakeland Flying Tigers, Tuesday night at Spectrum Field to fall to 9-16 overall.

The hot bats over the last ten games of Adam Haseley, Austin Listi, Darick Hall and Henri Lartigue kept Clearwater in the game until the final out in the bottom of the ninth.  Only a costly wide turn at third base by Arquimedes Gamboa in the bottom of the ninth denied the Threshers an attempt to pull out the game.

Austin Listi

Listi went deep in the second inning for his third homer of the season and the second in the last three games.  He is hitting .400 over his last ten games and .359 for the season. Watch HERE.

The left handed hitting Darick Hall continues to prove he is a professional hitter and is getting attention from high ups in the Phillies organization. Read HERE. In Tuesday’s game with the wind blowing out to left late, he showed his hitting ability by going the other way for a double down the left field line and a line drive single to left in his last two at bats. Hall is hitting .351 in his last ten games to go along with his league leading eight home runs.  Watch HERE.

Switch-hitting catcher Henri Lartigue drove in Hall with a base hit in the sixth inning for the third Threshers run. With his two hits in the game, Lartigue is hitting .385 over his last ten games. Watch HERE.

Not to be outdone, left fielder Adam Haseley almost tied up the game in the bottom of the ninth.  His line drive base hit to the right field corner scored Jose Gomez with the fourth  run of the night.  But Gamboa was tagged out in a run down halfway down the third base line to end the game. Watch HERE. Haseley is hitting .364 over his last ten games.

Connor Seabold

It was a tough luck loss for Threshers starter Connor Seabold who gave up three earned runs while striking out six in six innings of work.

The Threshers have a n00n rematch with Lakeland, Wednesday, at Spectrum Field.
