On a day when only two games were scheduled to play, Bradenton’s play was stopped by rain while Greensboro squeezed out another one run win over Lakeland.
Bradenton held a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the third at Fort Myers when the game was delayed because of rain.
Aaron Shortridge allowed one run in three innings, on a solo homer, while walking one and K’ing two.
A day after his hitting streak came to an end, Travis Swaggerty hit his third home run. Chris Sharpe doubled in a pair in the first. Cal Mitchell had two hits.
Tonight’s game has been suspended due to unplayable field conditions and will be resumed as part of a doubleheader beginning tomorrow morning at 11 in the top of the 4th with the good guys leading 3-1!— Bradenton Marauders (@The_Marauders) May 21, 2019
Greensboro (29-14) notched their third one-run win over Lakeland (14-29) in two days by a score of 2-1, even though they didn’t need a walk-off homer to do it.
23 year old right-hander Osvaldo Bido (6-2, 2.45) continued his good season, scattering three hits and a walk over six innings in allowing just one run. He struck out five.
Joe Jacques (2.86) followed with four strikeouts in two scoreless innings of relief.
Greensboro got their first run when LF Fabricio Macias (232/284/384) singled in CF Lolo Sanchez (320/401/513) in the third, followed an inning later by a solo homer from C Grant Koch (219/281/371), his third.
Macias had two of the Grasshoppers’ three hits, the other Koch’s home run.
