Angel Cuan Gets Decimated In 14-2 St. Lucie Loss
Fort Myers 14, St. Lucie 2
It was a rough night for St. Lucie on Friday, where they allowed 14 runs, and their offense was stifled by Fort Myers’ pitcher D.J. Baxendale.
Angel Cuan started tonight for St. Lucie and gave up a lead-off homerun to Adam Pettersen on the third pitch of the game. Cuan yielded an RBI single to Pettersen in the top of the third inning, but in the bottom half, Travis Taijeron responded by blasting a solo home run to left field to make the score 2-1.
It all unraveled for Cuan in the fourth inning, however, where he gave up seven earned runs and three home runs in the inning. Estarlin Morel pitched in relief of Cuan and allowed two runs while retiring only one batter. Morel was ejected for throwing a pitch high and inside that almost hit Fort Myers’ third baseman Kennys Vargas. Manager Ryan Ellis was also ejected. Wanel Vasquez came in and induced a grounder to the second baseman to finally put an end to the inning. The Miracle scored a total of nine runs in the inning. It was over for St. Lucie at that point, with the score standing at 11-1.
