Short Season Friday: Cyclones win late; Tapia bombed

SS-A: @Brooklyn Cyclones 2, Connecticut Tigers 0

A two-run eighth inning double by Brian Harrison (2-4, 2B, 2RBI) lifted the Cyclones past Connecticut 2-0.

Marcos Camarena: 6 IP, 4 hits, bb, 7K.

Eric Beaulac: 2 IP, K

 

SS-R: @ Greenville Astros 13, Kingsport Mets 7

Domingo Tapia failed to get out of the first inning for the second time this season, but this time it was not because of an injury. Tapia recorded only two outs on the night, giving up six hits and five earned runs. He also walked one and struck out one.

Tapia’s season totals: 2-4, 6.23 ERA, 26 IP, 33 hits, 7 bb, 15 k.

I saw Tapia throw in spring training and was impressed with his arm strength, but was concerned with the lack of a solid breaking ball. Even with a big fastball, Tapia has failed to miss bats this season, leading me to believe his secondaries need to be refined.

Good thing for Tapia is that he will not turn 20 until December.

The Kingsport defense didn’t exactly help the cause, as they committed six errors.
