A strong outing for the Clearwater Threshers’ pitching staff fell short in a 2-0 loss to the Dunedin Blue Jays in the series opener of a four-game set at Spectrum Field on Monday afternoon.
Locust Grove native Ethan Lindow had a tough start in the first inning following a leadoff double from Dunedin Blue Jays’ Reggie Pruitt. The first run of the game scored on a grounded single from Alejandro Kirk to plate the Pruitt.
Following the first inning run, Lindow worked through four scoreless innings allowing two hits and retiring six via the punchout to finish his outing.
The left-hander’s Advanced A debut was marked by six strikeouts and no walks over five strong frames.
