Justin Nicolino followed up last week's start against the Palm Beach Cardinals with another brilliant outing versus the Bradenton Marauders. His ERA fell to 2.54. Unfortunately, the Jupiter offense couldn't touch Eliecer Navarro, and was ultimately shutout.

The Grasshoppers demonstrated terrific patience, drawing ten walks against the Shorebirds, and scoring a healthy number of runs. They took a one run lead in the tenth off a line drive single by Michael Main. Sadly, Greensboro lost in the bottom of the inning on a two-run walk-off double by Nik Balog.
