Miracle win pitchers' duel

Steve Singleton

Jupiter 0 at Fort Myers 1

W: D. Guerra (9-4, 4.28); L: J. Allison (5-7, 4.39); SV: A. Slama (19)
HR: FTM: S. Singleton (2).

The Fort Myers Miracle came out on the winning end of a pitchers duel against the Jupiter Hammerheads, thanks to Steve Singleton's solo shot home run over the right field wall in the bottom of the first.

Neither team got much in the way of hits and neither team really threatened throughout the game.

Edward Ovalle, Danny Lehmann and Yancarlos Ortiz all had singles in the game.

Deolis Guerra worked 6.1 innings scattering 5 hits and 2 walks while striking out 3. Jose Lugo worked the next 1.1 inning before giving way to Anthony Slama who finished of the contest, doing what he's best at.

Of more interest was the injury report. Johnny Woodard was in the stands tonight and reported he was two to three weeks away from playing again, but probably closer to two than three. Whit Robbins is off the DL and says he is playing Saturday. Rene Tosoni said he went for another X-ray on this foot and that it has not healed up properly over the last two weeks, so that it will likely be a bit longer before he returns.

Tyler Robertson went for an MRI today. He says he thinks it's going to be clean but won't know the results until tomorrow. In any case, Ozzie Sosa (1-0, 4.26) will be taking his place in the rotation, pitching tomorrow against the Marlin's Graham Taylor (8-5, 3.10).

I stopped Foxy in the concourse and I said, "I just have to ask but, have you guys been calling Olson and Berg the Weasley Twins down in the clubhouse." He said they have not - yet - but thought that was a good one.

I'm dead tired right now and have to get up early as we have a 10:00 AM start down in GCL, so I probably won't get to the rest of the write ups until sometime tomorrow afternoon.
