  • Star of the Game: Elijah Dunham – 2-for-4, 1 home run (3), 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored. More known for his speed than his power, Dunham’s fifth-inning two-run blast gave HV its first lead of the night
  • Josh Smith: 2-for-5, 1 double, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts
  • Ezequiel Duran: 2-for-5, 3 RBI, 2 strikeouts. Duran’s two-run single in the ninth tacked on a couple of important insurance runs

Tampa Tarpons (36-16): In both games against Jupiter, the Tarpons fell behind 1-0. And in both games, they rattled off enough unanswered runs to take the win. They triumphed narrowly 2-1 in the opener before taking home a 5-1 win in the later game.

Game 1

  • Star of the Game: Edgar Barclay – 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 30 pitches (21 strikes). Barclay did what he’s been doing all year: enter a close game in a long-relief role and shut things down for as long as necessary

  • Pat DeMarco: 2-for-3, 1 run scored
