'Tees Muster One Hit in Game One Loss

April 18, 2014 - Florida State League (FSL) - Brevard County Manatees News Release

VIERA, Fla. - In a game that was finished roughly 24 hours after it was suspended, the Dunedin Blue Jays ended the Brevard County Manatees three-game winning streak with a 4-0 victory on Friday evening at Space Coast Stadium.

Dunedin starting pitcher Daniel Norris was originally slated to start the second game of the series, but was pushed up a game due to the rain out and he continued where he left off against the Manatees (9-5) last weekend.

After throwing six innings of shutout baseball in a Blue Jays (11-2) victory last Saturday, Norris continued his early season brilliance by holding Brevard County to just one hit over four innings of work.

The lone hit, which was originally ruled an error, came on a single by catcher Cameron Garfield in the fourth. The lefty had control issues at times as he walked two batters, but battled through and struck out five over the four frames on 78 pitches.

Hobbs Johnson - who took over for the game's original starter Jorge Lopez after the delay - would throw two scoreless innings, before Dunedin jumped in front in the fourth inning.

With one out, Dalton Pompey reached on an error by Johnson. Pompey proceeded to steal second and then advanced to third on a ground out by K.C. Hobson.

After a walk to Kevin Patterson, right fielder Matt Newman lined a double to left, that dropped just in front of a diving Victor Roache, to drive in two and give the Blue Jays a 2-0 lead.

Dunedin would tack on the game's final two runs in the top half of the seventh inning.

After Martin Viramontes came in to relieve Johnson, Emilio Guerrero doubled to start the frame. Gustavo Pierre stepped to the plate, after a pop out to second, and lined a home run over the left-center field fence, his first of the year, to give Dunedin a 4-0 advantage.

Kramer Champlin would take over for Norris in the fifth inning and dominate the game's final five frames. Besides two walks, the Blue Jays' reliever did not allow a base hit while on the mound and struck out two batters in his first victory of the season.

Johnson would take the loss for Brevard County, as he allowed three hits and two unearned runs while striking out seven.
