His unearned run was scored via a Danny Ortiz fielding error that put Scranton up 2-0 at the time. Lehigh Valley would tie the game with a 2-run 6th inning with scoring singles from Andrew Knapp and Trevor Plouffe. Tyler Gilbert came on in the bottom of the 9th for his second inning of work on the night, but with two outs he gave up a walk-off HR. Cole Irvin will be on the mound for Game 2 tonight.

Clearwater splits the first two games of the best of 3 series.
