KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -- Nick Maton hit a three-run home run in the second inning, leading the Clearwater Threshers to a 6-0 win over the Florida Fire Frogs on Monday.
The home run by Maton scored Jake Scheiner and Daniel Brito to give the Threshers a 4-0 lead.
Clearwater starter Julian Garcia (1-1) picked up the win after allowing just two hits over six scoreless innings. Opposing starter Tristan Beck (0-1) took the loss in the Florida State League game after a rough outing in which he allowed four runs and five hits over 3 2/3 innings.
