Duane Below improved to 3-3 with a nice start in the Flying Tigers 4-0 win over Tampa. He gave up just two hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in seven shutout innings. Jay Sborz struck out two in two perfect innings to close out the game.
Jeffrey Kunkel was the hitting star in the win. He went two for three with a double, a run and an RBI.
Cale Iorg had a pair of singles and unfortunately, that was a third of the Flying Tigers offense in a 5-0 loss to Clearwater. Jeffrey Kunkel had the only extra base hit of the game with a double.
Rick Porcello dropped to 1-2 on the season but his ERA is still a microscopic 0.64. He gave up two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks with five strikeouts in four innings. If he keeps this up and as soon as the weather warms up, I have a feeling we’ll be seeing Porcello in Erie.
