Normally, eleven runs will cut it but the Flying Tigers lost 17-11 in a game that saw both teams combine for 30 hits. MIchael Bertram had a monster game and he went three for five with two homers and six RBIs.
Matt O’Brien fell to 5-7 with a tough start. He gave up seven runs on nine hits and a walk in just 1 1/3 innings. Of the three relievers that followed him, all gave up at least two earned runs.
Ryan Strieby had just one hit in the Flying Tigers 11-5 win over Vero Beach but that was a two run blast. Combine that with two sac. flies and he finished the game with a team high four RBIs. Brandon Timm also had a big day and he went three for five with a triple, three RBIs and two runs.
Jonah Nickerson improved to 8-3 with the win. He gave up five runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks with five strikeouts in six innings. Zach Simons threw three shutout innings to close out the game and he picked up his second save of the season.

Jay Sborz gave up three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Flying Tigers fell to Vero Beach 5-4. A solid start by Guillermo Moscoso went to waste. He gave up two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings.

Rick Porcello threw the first five innings of a seven inning no hitters as Lakeland topped St. Lucie 4-1. Porcello gave up just two walks and he was actually nailed for a run with a strikeout. Porcello continues to shine at Lakeland and he’s now evened his record at 6-6. His strikeout numbers aren’t nothing amazing, but he’s walked just 28 while keeping the ball on the ground. The end result is a 2.91 ERA and that was after a rough outing in his last start.
Ryan Strieby accounted for the bulk of the Flying Tigers offense. He homered for the nineteenth time this season and he drove in three of the Tigers four runs.
