Aaron Dott 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, K

It's incredibly difficult to win when you only get one hit, as you might guess. Slade Heathcott did drive in Tyler Austin on a sac fly, but that would be all. Caleb Cotham starts for the Thunder today at 6:35 pm against the Aeros.

Fred Lewis 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, BB, 3 K
Zach Arneson 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, K

The Tampa Yankees scored in the eighth inning to break a one-all tie, but Brevard County rallied for a run in the ninth to put themselves up again until Eduardo Sosa singled in Anderson Feliz for the walk-off win. Scottie Allen starts for the Yankees today against the Clearwater Threshers at 7 pm.
