Dunedin's Offense a No-Show in Fort Myers

Russ Savickas carried Dunedin on the mound as much as he could, but with the lack of offensive support, Dunedin dropped a 3-1 contest to Fort Myers Saturday.

Dunedin only had five hits in the game, all of them coming from the top half of the order. The offense combined to go 0-for-15 between the fifth and ninth spot in the batting order.

Adam Calderone continued his hot start to the season going 2-for-4 and raising his average to .438 on the year. Jacob Butler also continued his hot hitting going 2-for-4 with a run scored. Butler is now batting .419 on the year. Cory Patton had the other hit for Dunedin.

Butler has hit safely in eight of his nine games this season, and currently has a five game hitting streak, including a three game multi-hit streak.

Fort Myers scored once in the second inning after they began the inning with a double and a single. Matt Betsill grounded into a force out to third to enable Juan Portes to score from first. Two more runs came across in the fifth. Jeff Christy led off with a double, and after he moved to third on a groundout to shortstop, he scored on a groundout to second base. Dwayne White followed with a single, and scored the next at bats on an RBI single after stealing second base.

Russ Savickas suffered his first loss of the season allowing three runs, on seven hits, in seven innings. Savickas allowed just one walk, while striking out three.
