Flying Tigers’ pitching was on point Monday evening as the Flying Tigers pulled out a late innings victory to claim a piece of first place alongside the Daytona Tortugas. Alex Faedo allowed two runs, one earned, in 4 2⁄3 innings. He punched out six, and combined with his relievers to strike out 16 total Hammerheads in the game. Liarvis Breto stood out in relief, striking out seven in three innings of work. Still, the Flying Tigers offense couldn’t get anything going, and went into the bottom of the eighth down 0-2. Derek Hill led off with a single, and went to third when Cam Gibson singled behind him. Isaac Paredes sacrificed Hill home with a fly ball to right field. Danny Pinero drew a walk, and then Dylan Burdeaux doubled to drive in Gibson and Pinero with the eventual game winner.
Burdeaux: 2-4, 2 RBI, 2B, 2 SO
Paredes: 1-3, RBI, 2B
