Brevard County Manatees
BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA – The scheduled game last night between the Brevard County Manatees and the Tampa Yankees was washed out due to unplayable field conditions caused by a heavy storm that blew through the Space Coast at about 4 p.m.
In Brevard County Manatee action at Space Coast Stadium on Friday night, both the Manatees and the Tampa Yankees scored runs in the first inning. After that though, it was almost all Tampa as they left Space Coast Stadium with a 7-3 victory over the Manatees.
SUTER TAKE FIRST LOSS
Brevard County (18-17) starting pitcher Brent Suter (2-1, 4.58) had seemed to settled in after allowing consecutive two-out doubles in the first inning as he did not allow another base runner until a one-out solo home run to Gary Sanchez in the fourth.
It was the fifth inning that spelled the most trouble for the southpaw, as he surrendered four runs on three hits and a walk in that frame alone, running his totals to six runs on six hits and a walk in five innings of work. He took his first loss in Brevard County after winning each of his first two starts for the ‘Tees.
HAWN GOES 3 FOR 4
For Tampa (15-19), starting pitcher Scottie Allen did settle in nicely as he allowed just one run through six innings. He scattered four hits, walked only one and struck out two.
Brevard County was able to jump on Manny Barreda in the bottom of the ninth, after the reliever had thrown 35 pitches in the eighth with 18 balls.
Cody Hawn led off the final half inning with his sixth homer of the season and then Yadiel Rivera reached on an error and would score on a T.J. Mittelstaedt single. The Manatees though would leave runners on the corners to end the game. Hawn went 3-for-4 on the night, while Mittelstaedt had a pair of hits.
The Manatees have the day off today, and then hit the road to Port St. Lucie for games on Monday (6:35 p.m.) and Tuesday (10:30 a.m.). On Wednesday and Thursday, the ‘Tee’s host Port St. Lucie in games set for 6:35 p.m. at Space Coast Stadium.
