In the bottom of the 5th inning the Suns would grab another run on an Austin Barnes RBI double, and then Barnes would come home on a Viosergy Rosa double to give the Suns a 5-0 lead. Austin Nola would follow with an RBI double in the 6th inning to extend the lead to 6-0.
Justin Nicolino got the start on the mound, turning in another solid outing. Nicolino went 6 and 2/3 innings scattering seven hits, allowing no runs and striking out three. Reid Redman would follow with one and 1/3 scoreless innings, striking out three. Matt Ramsey would pitch the 9th inning allowing one run to nail down the championship for Jacksonville. The celebration of a championship on the middle of the diamond ends the season for all Miami Marlins minor league affiliates. Congratulations from Fish Stripes to Jacksonville for bringing home the championship!
