Dunedin Blue Jays vs Clearwater Threshers (loss 0-7)
A rough start to the game was too big of a hole for the Dunedin Blue Jays to climb out of. Justin Shafer just could not find a way to get Thresher hitters out. A first inning 2 run homer by Kyle Martin got the Threshers going. Things did not get much easier in the 2nd as the Threshers went on to string 3 more runs together.
Shafer would stay in for 4 total innings of work allowing 7 hits for 5 earned runs. He would only walk one batter and collect a strikeout. Jose Fernandez cam on and started off well. The Threshers would find a way to score 2 more runs off of Fernandez to push the score to 7-0 Threshers. Chris Rowley would come on and finally stop the bleeding over the last 2.1 innings.
