It took them four games to polish off Greenville in the Championship, mirroring last year’s victory. Behind the arms of prospects Jon Pettibone and Josh Zeid, the Claws held the Drive to two runs while striking out eleven batters. Both runs were scored in the third inning off RBI groundouts.â†µ
Lakewood scored their runs all in the fifth, three of which on a home run by prized catcher Sebastian Valle, his third of the postseason and 19th of the year. Jon Singleton also added two hits.â†µ
Exciting things continue to happen in Lakewood and we can only hope it carries over to Clearwater as these prospects climb the organizational ladder.
