Drew Stankiewicz - 1 for 3, K
Emmanuel Marrero - 0 for 2, R, K, SB, HBP

Zach Eflin makes his 2017 debut with Clearwater, which he doesn’t figure to be with for too long. Eflin had offseason surgery on both knees and his rehab has moved along a little slowly. His advanced stuff was no match for the Toronto Blue Jays prospects. Jose Pujols provided all the run support the Threshers needed with a two-run double in the 4th inning.

Lakewood 7, Kannapolis 5

JoJo Romero - 4 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 5 K, 5 GB, 1 FB
Mauricio Llovera - 1.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, BB, 2 K, WP
Zach Morris - 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 K
Ismael Cabrera - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, K
Daniel Brito - 2 for 5, R, 2 K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 2 for 5, 2 R
Mickey Moniak - 2 for 5, 2 R, K
Darick Hall - 2 for 4, RBI
Lucas Williams - 2 for 5, R, RBI (throwing and fielding errors)
Cord Sandberg - 2 for 4, R, 2B, RBI
David Martinelli - 0 for 3
Alex Wojciechowski - 1 for 1, RBI
Edgar Cabral - 0 for 3, BB
Carlos Duran - 0 for 4

JoJo Romero didn’t get off to a great start, surrendering 7 hits and 4 runs in his first two innings of work before settling down. Thankfully the BlueClaw offense put together 13 hits, of which only one was for extra bases. 2016 First Overall Pick Mickey Moniak made his full-season debut with a multi-hit game. Also making their full season debut were Brito, Gamboa, Hall, Williams, Martinelli and Wojciechowski. The last name on that last might not look familiar as he was a 2016 15th round draft pick that was selected by the Phillies, but not signed. He suffered an elbow injury around the time of the draft and wasn’t signed until just recently. In his final year at University of Minnesota Duluth he swatted 33 homeruns and hit .444 in 55 games. Last night he came on to pinch hit for Martinelli in the 8th inning and hit a single to break the 5-5 tie.
