The big league club wasn’t the only team postponed on Wednesday. Memphis and Peoria both had games cancelled due to weather. Springfield wasn't in action.
Palm Beach Cardinals 11 at Bradenton Marauders 1
Evan Kruczynski (SP): 6 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 1BB, 9K’s
Andy Young (2B): 4-5, 2HR, 3 RBI, 3R
Johan Mieses (DH): 2-4, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 3R
Stefan Trosclair (1B): 2-4, 1 HR, 2 RBI
Springfield created just enough thunder on Wednesday to numb the lack of baseball in our lives. Starter Evan Kruczynski, a 2017 9th rounder, rolled through the Bradenton lineup in short order. Relievers Jason Zgardowski, Yeison Medina, and Will Latcham combined for three scoreless innings to slam the door.
Andy Young drove the Palm Bech offense with home runs in the second and sixth innings. Young is slashing .333/.366/.769 on the season. Third baseman Evan Mendoza continues to produce, notching a double and a walk in four at-bats. Johan Mieses’s day at the plate puts him at .265/.302/.510 on the year. Mieses possesses an interesting right-field starter pack and may prove to be an intriguing grab from the Dodgers’ system.
The win puts Palm Beach at 9-4. They’ll take on Bradenton again on Thursday at 5:30 CST. To make up for the weather, Memphis will play a double header against the Omaha Stormchasers. Springfield will resume the season against the Arkansas Travelers and Peoria will match up against Quad Cities.
