Luis Heredia gave up two hits and two earned runs during the top of the 10th inning and the Bradenton Marauders fell to the Cleawater Threshers, 2-0, in the second game of a four-game series at McKechnie Field.
Bradenton managed only four hits in 10 innings against Clearwater, leaving pitcher Austin Coley with a no decision despite six scoreless innings. Heredia (4-2), who was one of four All-Stars for the Pirates’ Class A Advanced affiliate last month, also threw two wild pitches, including one on a strikeout that could have ended the inning without any runs scoring. Instead, first baseman Kyle Martin beat the throw to first and the Phillies’ FSL team scored the game-winning run a batter later.
Threshers pitcher Matt Hockenberry allowed a lead-off single to shortstop Cole Tucker before retiring three straight to finish off the Marauders in Bradenton.
Up next: The Marauders send Buddy Borden (0-1, 7.16) to the mound against the Threshers’ Elniery Garcia (8-2, 2.23). The first pitch is at 6:30 p.m. Live streaming audio will be available online at BradentonMarauders.com.
