Lawley Crushes Two Home Runs In 5-2 St. Lucie Win
St. Lucie 5, Bradenton 2
St. Lucie starter Angel Cuan had a decent bounce back start tonight to pick up his third win of the season. Cuan pitched in and out of trouble most of the night, but he escaped without incurring too much damage. In the third and fourth innings, the first two batters reached base against Cuan, but he managed to not allow any runs in either frame. However, in the fifth, Cuan yielded two runs off three hits.
Jim Fuller came in relief of Cuan in the sixth inning and St. Lucie received outstanding relief work from Fuller and T.J. Chism. Fuller pitched two scoreless innings and only allowed one hit. Chism also pitched two scoreless innings and picked up a six out save. T.J. Chism has been superb this season, with a 1.35 ERA so far.
St. Lucie was found success against Bradenton starter Eliecer Navarro. Rylan Sandoval led off the second inning with a line drive single to right field. The next batter, Dustin Lawley, launched a 2 run home run that put St. Lucie ahead 2-0. St. Lucie tacked on another run in the inning off an RBI single by catcher Cam Maron. Cam Maron had an eventful night behind the plate. He threw out two runners that were attempting to steal, but he was also charged with catchers interference in the third inning.
Dustin Lawley crushed another home run in the 6th that extended the Mets lead. Lawley looked like he busted out his slump with a terrific night at the plate. Lawley was hitting .164 on the season before tonight’s game.
