Marlins 3, Brewers 0
RHP Jonathan Cannon (Centennial HS, GA) took the ball to open things up for the Brewers. He worked easy from a ¾ slot. Fastball ranged 87-91 mph, mostly 88. Solid sink when down in the zone. Average slider 80-84 mph. Also mixed in changeup at 79-83 mph. Faced the minimum nine batters in three innings of work. Threw six first-pitch strikes. Allowed only one base runner on an E-6, who was then erased on a caught stealing. RHP Zach Maxwell (North Paulding HS, GA) followed with two innings pitched. Showed a quick arm out front from a ¾ slot. Rotational delivery. Fastball 87-92 mph. Got out and around slider at 80-84 mph causing inconsistent spin and flat shape. Mississippi State recruit LHP Davis Rokose (Chattahoochee HS. GA) closed things out for the Brewers, throwing the final two innings. He showed a simple, repeatable delivery with compact arm action. Plus pitchability, working up & down and back & forth. Fastball ranged from 86-88 mph, but played up with his ability to locate. Best secondary pitch was an average 81-82 mph changeup.
