Low-A Bradenton gets walk off
The lone loser on the night in the Pirate farm system was the Low-A Bradenton Marauders. The Marauders were walked off 2-1 in 10 innings by the Tampa Tarpons. With the loss, the Marauders are now 24-23 on the season.
Both teams scored in the 2nd inning. Bradenton took a 1-0 lead in the top half of the inning when Geovanny Planchart singled home Tanner Tedaway. Tampa Bay would then respond with a run in the bottom half of the inning to tie the game at 1.
For the most of the rest of the night, it was a pitcher's show in Tampa.
J.P. Massey started for the Marauders and continued to throw the ball well. Massey allowed run on three hits, three walks, and four strikeouts in 4 innings pitched. He now owns a 2.58 ERA, and an 18:48 BB:K ratio in 38.1 innings pitched this season.
Yunior Thibo followed Massey, allowing a hit and striking out four in 2 scoreless innings pitched. Darvin Garcia allowed a hit, walked two, and struck a batter out in 2 scoreless innings of his own.
Ryan Harbin then took the ball in the 9th inning. After pitching a scoreless 9th, Harbin allowed the walk off hit in the 10th inning. Harbin allowed just one hit and struck a batter out in 1.2 innings pitched, with the run he allowed being unearned due to the extra innings base runner rule.
