Petrick, Cubs hang on to win pitchers' duel 2-1 - Palm Beach Cardinals press release

JUPITER, FL - In front of over 2300 students and faculty from Palm Beach County schools at Roger Dean Stadium, the Palm Beach Cardinals fell to the Daytona Cubs by the score of 2-1.
Bill Petrick, the starter for Daytona, shutout the Cardinals over seven innings, allowing only three hits. Petrick (1-2) also stuck out six batters. Adalberto Mendez came on in relief for the Cubs to earn his third save.
Cardinals' starter Stuart Pomeranz was the hard luck loser. Pomeranz (1-3) allowed two runs in six innings of work while fanning five. The runs came on a two-out single to left field by Cubs' first baseman Brian Dopirak, after Pomeranz had gotten ahead in the count 0-2.
The Cardinals avoided being shut out for the second game in a row by scoring a run in the ninth.
Anthony Monegan led off the inning by beating out a groundball to shortstop for his second hit of the game. Cody Haerther came up as a pinch hitter and drove the ball to left for a single, advancing Monegan to third. Monegan was brought home on a ground ball out by Matt Dryer.
Terry Evans followed Dryer with a walk to put runners on first and second with only one out. The Cardinals, however, fell short in their attempt for a comeback as Mendez was able to retire both Ben Rosenthal and Ty Parker to end the game.
The third and final game of the series is tomorrow night at 7:05, when the Cardinals will look to avoid the sweep.
