Yesterday's Game(s)
The Threshers swept another doubleheader against the Flying Tigers.

Andrew Carpenter picked up his league-leading 14th win in Game 1 giving up only one run and five hits in seven innings (complete-game). Brian Burgamy and Jeremy Slayden both had two hits in the contest, while John Urick and Matt Thayer each had RBIs which helped lead to the 2-1 win.

Cory Willey struck out three and gave up only one hit in two innings of relief in Game 2 and picked up his sixth victory of the season. Brad Harman, Matt Thayer, and Jeremy Slayden provided the RBIs to give the Threshers a 3-2 victory.

The Race for First
The Threshers still lead the FSL in attendance. After an announced crowd of 1,587 yesterday, the Threshers went over the 150,000 fan mark for the season. The Threshers currently average 300 more fans a night than the second place Daytona Cubs.

First place in the win-loss column is also back in sight. The Threshers are 7-3 in their last 10 games and are now just a half game back of the Yankees. Tampa plays Ft. Myers again tonight. Ft. Myers is hot in August, having won 10 games in a row.

Bonus Baseball
Due to heavy rains in our region throughout the month of July, we are playing a doubleheader here against the Flying Tigers on Friday, August 31. There is also the potential for an additional doubleheader here against the Flying Tigers on a date to be determined. They are seven-inning games. Game 1 on August 31 will now start at 5:00pm with Game 2 scheduled to start approximately 30 minutes after the completion of Game 1.
