Ian Clarkin Pitches Seven Shutout Frames, Fleming Provides Run Support in 5-0 Win

The Tampa Yankees offense erupted for 11 runs in yesterday’s win against the Lakeland Flying Tigers. Today they were trying to do the same behind a solid start from Ian Clarkin. Clarkin was trying to earn his third win on the season and his first since April 23rd. In his last two appearances he’s given up five earned runs against Daytona and Brevard County.

From the very first inning, the Yankees put the game in Clarkin’s hands and he came through. After a Cesar Diaz walk, Billy Fleming tacked two on the board with a homer over the left-field wall. It was only Fleming’s third home run, but the two RBIs move him to 21 on the season.

In the fourth inning, four straight four-pitch walks to Jake Skole, Santiago NessyAustin Aune and Vicente Conde plus a Cesar Diaz rbi groundout tallied two more to make it 4-0.

Those four runs were more than enough as Ian Clarkin pitched seven innings of shutout baseball. Through seven, he struck out 10, walked none, and gave up only five hits. James Reeves continued the pitching dominance in the final two innings. He didn’t give up a hit and struck out four to move himself to 16 punchouts in  8 innings pitched this season. As for Clarkin, the 10 strikeouts move him up to 29 in 37 2/3 innings.

The Yankees have won three in a row and are 20-13 on the season. They still stay 1.5 games behind Clearwater in the FSL North as the Threshers have won two in a row. Tomorrow, the Yankees are back home with Chance Adams searching for his third win. In his last appearance, he pitched six shutout innings, striking out eight and giving up just three hits.
