NEW BRITAIN NEWS

FT MYERS MEMOS
Monday - Miracle 0, Clearwater 1 – Three hits for the Miracle made Ryan Mullins a tough-luck loser again. The lefty pitched very well again. He gave up just one run on six hits in seven innings. He walked just one and struck out five. However, he fell to 1-3. Yohan Pino threw two shutout innings in relief. Steve Tolleson went 1-3 with a walk. Erik Lis went 1-3 with a walk. Eli Tintor went 1-4.
In some very exciting
news for the Miracle, on Friday when they take on Tampa,
will take the mound for the Miracle
Roger Clemens, who will be
making his first appearance of the year. Should be a good challenge
for the Miracle bats.
Monday - Snappers – No Game Scheduled.
