Bradenton hangs on for 1-run victory

Sunday afternoon the Low-A Bradenton Marauders defeated the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels by a score of 4-3. With the close victory, the Maruaders are now 34-29 on the season.

Termarr Johnson remains red hot for the Marauders. Johnson went 1-for-3 with a walk and his 5th home run of the season. Johnson now owns an .829 OPS on the season, which is incredibly impressive for an 18-year-old at Low-A. Already on of the top prospects in baseball, Johnson will likely only continue to climb prospect rankings.

Center fielder Enmanuel Terrero went 1-for-4 with his 4th home run of the season and a walk. While Terrero did not enter the season with the same prospect pedigree as Johnson, like Johnson he has positioned himself to shoot up prospect rankings.

Jack Brannigan was 1-for-4 with a walk and Rodolfo Nolasco was also 1-for-4. Shalin Polanco continues to swing a hot bat going 1-for-3 with a run scored and he was hit by a pitch. Jesus Castillo was 0-for-3 with a walk.

Dominic Perachi started for Bradenton and lasted just 4.1 innings. Perachi alowed 3 runs on three hits, four walks, a home run, and two strikeouts in his 4.1 innings pitched. Joshua Loeschorn followed Perachi, walking a batter and striking a batter out while getting the final out of the 5th inning.

Carlos Lomeli pitched 2 scoreless innings, allowing two hits and striking out three batters. Julian Bosnic pitched the final 2 innings of the game. Bosnic posted a zero while allowing a hit, walking a batter, and striking out three.
