Down on the Farm: Kris Bryant leads Smokies to 12-1 win

2 of 4

We’ll go ahead and start with the Daytona Cubs who took on the Brevard County Manatees. Daytona dropped yesterday’s series finale against the Lakeland Flying Tigers.

The Cubs were able to tie up the ballgame during the first inning but were unable to plate any runs after that. This is something that Daytona has been having trouble doing. They have had some games where they were able to put some solid hits together which produced a handful of runs, but they struggle more than they score.

Brevard County would take a 3-1 lead during the top of the third inning on two consecutive two out hits. Starting pitcher Rob Zastryzny continued to struggle on the mound as he was only able to work through four and two-third innings tonight. He was charged with four earned runs off four hits while striking out five.

The only Cubs’ run came off a double by Bijan Rademacher in the very first inning.

Reliever Michael Jensen would be charged with the final run of the game during the top of the ninth inning. Daytona picked up seven hits on the night.

Winning pitcher is Damien Magnifico (2-2, 2.83 ERA) losing pitcher is Rob Zastrynzy (1-3, 8.33).

Final Score: Manatees 5, Cubs 1.

Daytona Cubs fall to 10-20.
