High-A – Dunedin Blue Jays 8, Palm Beach Cardinals 2
(The Birdhouse News) The Palm Beach Cardinals fell to the Dunedin Blue Jays on Saturday night by a 8-2 score. Starter Stuart Pomerantz (1-5, 3.83 ERA) took the loss with a poor outing. Pomerantz gave up six runs, five earned, on twelve hits and one walk in only five innings pitched. Roberto Batista and Jeff Randazzo each gave up an earned run while pitching an inning while Scott Schweitzer continues to impress by pitching a scoreless, hitless seventh inning and lowering his ERA to 2.19. The Cardinals' two runs scored in the fourth inning when second baseman Cal Hayes and shortstop Mike McCoy got aboard with back-to-back singles to lead-off the inning. Both runners advanced on a wild pitch and Hayes then scored on third baseman Matt Dryer's ground out. First baseman John Santor then lined a single to left to score McCoy. Right fielder Terry Evans went 3-for-4 but did not figure in the scoring.
