Single-A Tampa Tarpons

Tampa was supposed to play a second game after the continuation of yesterday’s suspended game, but wound up only playing game one. They beat Lakeland, 4-3 (box score). Game two was postponed due to rain. A double header is scheduled tomorrow.

  • Starting pitcher: RHP Yoendrys Gomez: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K — 12 of 16 pitches were strikes (75%)…This happened last night before the rain, hence only one inning pitched.

  1. Hopefully that Boone quote isn’t a precursor to Park getting called up to play centerfield instead of trading for an actual centerfielder….

    Why did they send Milone back to AA? He’s had the best stretch of his career, and he kept hitting in AAA. He should’ve stayed, while Florial should’ve gone back instead. I know with LaMarre healthy again, someone had to go, but they returned the wrong CF to AA.
