Morabie Ramirez came in during the fifth inning to finish out the game. Ramirez recorded four strikeouts while giving up three hits and no runs during his 2.2 innings at work. Coach Chris Gonzales commented, “our pitching was on point” while going on to say “ Overall the Panthers executed defensively… we did struggle at the plate”.
