Knights sweep doubleheader versus Phipps Park, now over .500

Game 1:

The Knights trailed 3–0 going into the bottom of the sixth, with the Barracudas scoring on an RBI single from Reese Woody, and a sacrifice fly from Jack Clancy and Michael Starrs. The offense was struggling for a majority of the game, but the saying “It’s not how you start that’s important, but how you finish!” came true in the final two innings for West Palm Beach.

Game 2:

A lot of action took place in the second game of the doubleheader. The Knights were able to score the first two runs in the second inning as a walk with the bases loaded scored Franklin Carney, and Juhlien Gonzalez was able to come home after Tyler Muscat was hit by a pitch from Salvatore Zaremba.

Pitchers:

Patrick Montagna pitched the entire game in the first matchup and now has his first win of the season. For Phipps Park, Anthony Aparico was the losing pitcher and now has three losses on the season as he subbed into the game for the final inning. For the second matchup, Fletcher Reynolds remained undefeated for the season and now has two wins with no losses. Reynolds allowed only one hit and threw three strikeouts. Josh Martos was handed the loss for the Barracudas.

Up Next:
