Moniak, Lartigue and Markham Power The Threshers to a 6-1 Win Over Bradenton.

Back in 1982, the Milwaukee Brewers led the league in runs and home runs and earned the nickname Harvey’s Wallbangers, after Manager Harvey Kuenn. Last night, Mickey Moniak was an actual “wall banger” as he hit a double and triple off the left field wall at Spectrum Field to lead the Clearwater Threshers to a 6-1 victory over the Bradenton Marauders.
