Bradenton suffers 1-run loss

The Low-A Bradenton Marauders fell to 51-37 on the season on Saturday. This came as a result of a 3-2 loss against the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels. A game in which the Marauders were held to just four hits.

Lonnie White Jr. went 1-for-3 with a walk and he was hit by a pitch. Yordany De Los Santos was 2-for-3 with a run scored. This included De Los Santos hitting his 2nd double at the Low-A level. Jesus Castillo was 1-for-3 with a RBI.

The poor offensive output wasted a great start from Dominic Perachi. The lefty pitched 6 strong innings, allowing a run on three hits, two walks, and three strikeouts. Perachi threw 52 of 83 pitches for strikes and induced six ground ball outs.

Yoldin De La Paz followed, allowing a hit and walking a pair. However, he struck a batter out on his ay to a scoreless 7th inning. After pitching a scoreless 8th inning, Julian Bosnic allowed a pair of runs in the 9th to lead to the Mighty Mussels victory.
