Clearwater Threshers Get Offensive Help From Rixon Wingrove, Yhoswar Garcia and Carlos De La Cruz

Going into Sunday’s action, the Clearwater Threshers’ pitchers lead the league with the lowest staff ERA of 3.53 but they Threshers are in the bottom half of the ten team league hitting only .226.

That might be changing after last night’s game with the Tampa Tarpons. Big power hitting, Rixon Wingrove finally hit his second homer of the season. It was a two-run blast to right over the Phillies World Championship sign.

Speedster Yhoswar Garcia has already left a positive impression stealing bases. Saturday night, he lined a ball down the right field line and turned the hit, which is usually a double for any one else, into an RBI triple. The Threshers as a team have hit only four triples in the first 34 games of the season, last in the league.

Corner outfielder Carlos De La Cruz, repeating low A, finally hit a line drive single for a RBI. If he can start doing that more often, the Threshers will have solved some of their offensive woes!

Though the Threshers gave up a 4-0 lead and lost 5-4 on Saturday night, if Wingrove, Garcia and De La Cruz can continue to generate offense, they will stay over .500 and play more interesting baseball.
