  • Ryan Tepera went 2 innings, allowing 1 hit & 1 walk
  • Bo Schultz threw the final 2 innings with 1 hit allowed & striking out 1

New Hampsire loses their 3rd straight to fall back to .500. The offense had 10 hits, but was only able to score 1 run

  • Michael Lee had a rough outing. He lasted 4.2 innings, giving up 7 hits and 3 walks. Lee recorded 5 strike outs

Dunedin got strong pitching and just enough offense to get back to the .500 mark

  • Jairo Labourt had a solid start. He threw 4 innings, striking out 8 batters. He also got 6 ground ball outs. He did give up a run on 4 hits and a walk. A much better day than his previous start
