Game 152: Cincinnati Spikes - Palm Beach PAL
Bryce Curry (LHP, South Dearborn, IN 2013), Trevor Malony (RHP, WPB, FL 2012) and Parker Danciu (LHP, Delray Beach, FL 2012) matched witts on the mound today in their first round playoff matchup at Terry Park Stadium.
Curry started the game for Cincinnati and went the distance for a six inning complete game. Curry was the tough luck loser, but pitched a gem of a game. He scattered four hits, allowed two runs and struck out five. Curry walked six batters, three in the second inning in which he seemed to lose his rhythm momentarily, which led to the two Palm Beach runs.
Malony started the game for Palm Beach and lasted 4.1 innings, allowing just one run on two hits while striking out eight. The right hander featured a four pitch arsenal, including an 87 MPH fastball.
Danciu came in to relieve Malony, and pitched 2.2 perfect innings to close out the game. He struck out five batters and hit 89 MPH. He also drove in one of Palm Beach's two runs with a sac fly in the second inning.
