Jeramy Laster had a heck of a game. He belted a solo homer in the third inning to put the Flying Tigers on the board and then he hit a two run shot in the top of the ninth to tie the game at 5-5. Unfortunately, that even score was short lived Angel Castro gave up a run in the bottom of the ninth as Lakeland lost it to Dunedin.
Rick Porcello had a decent start in the no decision. He gave up two runs on five hits and three walks in five innings. Suprisingly, no strikeouts.
Lakeland blew a three run lead when Brendan Wise and Juan Cedeno combined to give up four runs in the eighth inning. Wise took the loss and he fell to 0-3 and it was too bad because a very nice start by Luis Marte went to waste. Marte gave up four hits with four strikeouts in seven shutout innings.

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.
