Carlos Perez (3-5) would give way to a bullpen that had been labored as of late. Perez would exit after six strong innings in which he only allowed one earned run and maintained a 5-2 lead. Jon Hunton, Tim Layden and Jeff Teasley (1-1) would combine to allow seven runs and to allow the Threshers to go ahead in the contest 9-5 after seven and a half.
For the second time in the game Harvey would lead off an inning, this time against reliever Adam Shafer. The Daytona right fielder would go back to the line-drive homer back into left-center field for his third round-tripper of the contest while pulling Daytona to within three runs.
After Teasley worked a scoreless top of the ninth inning, the offense would go to work. Pat Overholt (2-1) who picked up a win against the Cubs just to days ago would come in to pitch. With one out, Sam Fuld would walk to get the rally started. Next up was Jonathan Mota who would have an opposite field single to bring in the tying run. After a Jemel Spearman strikeout it was up to Matt Craig. Craig would hit a high pop-up behind second base that would be muffed by Hector Made to score Fuld and put Mota and Craig in scoring position. With first base open, Threshes manager Greg Legg elected not to walk Harvey who had already hit the three homers. Harvey would step in and hit is fourth home run of the day to left-center field to walk the Cubs off the field with the 10-9 win after the three-run bomb.
Harvey stands alone in Florida State League history as the only player to ever hit four homers in one game. Harvey has now raised his season total to 16 bombs after the 4/5 day at the plate to go with 66 RBI.
The first-place Cubs look to take three of four tomorrow with Billy Petrick (0-0) making his first Daytona start. First pitch for the Saturday evening contest is 7:05 p.m. and fireworks will follow the game.
