Howard, Threshers Get 2-0 Win
Clearwater Threshers starter Willie Howard was in a groove as he led his team to a win over the Tampa Tarpons, 2-0. Andrew Schultz earned the save for Clearwater, his 6th of the year. The Tarpons, now 8-14, continue their slow start.

Howard dominated for Clearwater, raising his record to 3-0. Tampa hitters had few good at-bats against the left-hander, who scattered 3 hits over 8 innings while striking out 4.

"It's always a heck of a lot easier to get to sleep after a win," Howard told the Clearwater Daily News. "I know I'll rest easy tonight."
