CLEARWATER, Fla. – Mick Abel spun a scoreless outing for the Threshers in a 3-1 win against the Dunedin Blue Jays on Thursday night.

For the second night in a row, the Threshers pitching staff was on fire, limiting the Blue Jays batters to one run on five hits and four walks while striking out nine on the night. Abel hurled three innings of one-hit ball in the start. He walked two batters and recorded five strikeouts, throwing 41 of his 68 pitches for strikes.

The Clearwater offense backed up the solid start with three runs. The first run of the ball game came in the bottom of the third inning. Jadiel Sanchez singled to get on base and Johan Rojas drove a ball into center field to put two men on with one out. Abrahan Gutierrez reached on a throwing error to load the bases for the Threshers and Juan Aparicio launched a sacrifice fly to left field to score the run and give the Threshers a 1-0 lead.

The Threshers added on two more runs in the bottom of the fourth. Nicolas Torres and Marcus Lee Sang drew consecutive walks and Guarner Dipre grounded into a force out that moved Torres up to third. Luis Garcia drove in the run with a single on the ground into right field for the first run of the inning. Dipre later scored on a fielder’s choice out by Johan Rojas to extend the lead to 3-0.

Dunedin battled back in the eighth after back-to-back doubles from Dasan Brown and Addison Barger, but the Threshers came out victorious 3-1.
