The Leesburg Lightning (6-8) hosted the Winter Garden Squeeze (8-8) in a makeup game previously rained out earlier in the season. The bats from both squads battled back and forth with a ninth inning rally cut short for Leesburg as they dropped the game 8-6 on Sunday night.
“There were too many two strike hits, too many pitches left over the plate and [Parry] is a guy that’s got to pitch and he knows that,” Lightning head coach Rich Billings said. “He’s pitched with so much confidence to this point and I don’t think there’s any reason to be concerned. I think he’ll be right back out there next time doing his thing.”
Tyler Parry started on the mound for the Lightning going five innings with six hits, five runs and three strikeouts.
A solo homerun in the top of the second put the Squeeze on the board first for a 1-0 lead.
