FLORENCE, Ky. – After a surprising 18-9 loss against the Windy City Thunderbolts last night, Florence Y’alls field manager Brian White called his team together for a meeting today. What followed was a dominant 10-6 victory to even the series at Thomas More Stadium in Florence.
Florence’s bats, who put up nine runs on eleven hits in yesterday’s defeat, had an even better outing tonight. The Y’alls recorded a hit in every inning, and had every batter pick up at least one hit. Harrison DiNicola, Brennan Price, and AJ Bumpass each came through with three-hit nights.
Price notched his team-best seventh home run of the season tonight, a 421-foot shot to right field. Joe Lytle also homered, going deep against his former team in Windy City.
A crowd of 2,200 watched the Y’alls end their four-game losing streak, and do it on Nickelodeon night at the ballpark. Florence wore specialty Nickelodeon-themed jerseys, featuring various cartoon characters and the iconic Nickelodeon slime logo.
The bats hopped on Windy City’s pitching early in the contest, and allowed Yasel Santana to breathe comfortably throughout his start. The former Red Sox farmhand went 4.1 innings, allowing no runs on three hits. A combination of five relief pitchers finished the game, with Karl Craigie earning the win. Windy City's Tyler Thornton gets the loss.
This is the fifth time Florence has outputted double-digit runs this season, as they continue to prove themselves as a premier offensive team in the Frontier League. The Y’alls are top-five in most offensive categories, including batting average, runs, hits, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage.
This three-game series between the Y’alls and Bolts is tied at one game each. Jonaiker Villalobos is Florence's projected starter for tomorrow’s rubber match. Garrett Christman is Windy City’s projected starter. First pitch at Thomas More Stadium is scheduled for 1:07 p.m.
