Advanced-A Port Charlotte Stone Crabs (39-46)

After getting rained out yesterday, the Crabs played a couple of seven inning shortened games today to make up for the lost game.

In the first game, the Crabs fell to the Fort Myers Miracle 4-3. In the third inning, Jake Cronenworth drove in two with a double and Brandon Lowe brought him home with a single. With a 3-1 lead in the soxth inning and two men on base, Drew Smith gave up the tying run on a double, and then the go-ahead run on an eunsuing single. The Crabs wouldn't recover, and lose 4-3.

In the second matchup, the Miracle got the best of Port Charlotte again, defeating them 5-3. The Miracle put together a five run fourth inning in part due to Kevin Padlo's throwing error. Brock Burke couldn't get out of that inning and the Crabs were down a substantial 5-0 early on. The Crabs would rebuttal in the fifth posting three runs including a two run double from Jake Cronenworth. But it wasn't enough to stave off defeat, losing 5-3.
