With 4,718 in the house at Harbor Park, Braxton Garrett plated 52-of-84 offerings, walking zero and striking out five. He allowed no runs on three singles and a double over six innings of work, a quality start for his second win against no losses. Alexander Guillen pitched two shutout innings, followed by a scoreless ninth and the third save of the campaign for Brett Eibner.
Marte later added another single, and was the only Jacksonville player to finish with more than one hit. Monte Harrison, Díaz, and Jesús Sánchez collected a single each, helping the Shrimp to improve to 12-4. Tonight at 7:05 PM, Shawn Morimando will get his turn in the rotation against the Tides.
Pensacola Blue Wahoos 2, Rocket City Trash Pandas 1
With 5,038 in the stands at Blue Wahoo Stadium, Pensacola went 8 2⁄3 innings without allowing a run before coughing up a solo shot to Torii Hunter Jr. They still did enough to stop the Pandas, 2-1 to improve to 9-7 for the season.
Jeff Lindgren pitched a quality start, tossing six innings and allowing eight hits — seven singles and a double—while keeping the Pandas off the board. He struck out three and put 53-of-77 pitches over the plate. Zack Leban struck out two over 1 2⁄3 shutout innings, allowing two hits and two walks. Colton Hock earned his second save, striking out two but allowing the solo homer to Hunter.
Lorenzo Hampton got the Wahoos on the board with an RBI-single in the fifth inning. Peyton Burdick hit his fourth homer of the season to double the lead in the eighth inning. Tristan Pompey collected a pair of singles, the only Pensacola player to finish with more than one hit. Chris Chinea had the other hit for the Wahoos.
Tonight at 7:05 PM, the Blue Wahoos will play the fifth game of their six-game series against the Raccoons.
Beloit Snappers 1, Cedar Rapids Kernels 2
In High-A, the Snappers suffered the only setback to the Marlins farm system on Friday, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Kernels to drop to 8-8.
Kameron Misner launched his first shot of the season to get Beloit on the board first, in the fourth inning in front of 1,223 at Perfect Game Field. Meanwhile, Zach King turned in a quality start with eight whiffed in six innings. He gave up five hits and three walks for two runs, taking the loss. Jackson Rose pitched two shutout innings in relief.

Aside from Misner’s moon-shot, the only things the Snappers could muster was a Griffin Conine double and a Thomas Jones single. The club also struck out 16 times without drawing a walk. They’ll get another shot tonight starting at 7:35 PM.
Jupiter Hammerheads 5, Daytona Tortugas 4
Jupiter’s offense totaled more runs than the other three affiliates on Saturday, setting down the Tortugas by a 5-4 final. Jupiter improved to 7-9 for the season.
George Soriano gave up four runs on four walks and four hits in four innings, striking out five after sporting the Tortugas a 4-0 lead. In the fourth inning, Cameron Barstad went deep for the first time this year to get the Sharks on the board. The score would remain 4-1 until the top of the ninth inning.
In Jupiter’s half of the ninth, Federico Polanco hit a leadoff single, followed by a Barstad walk. Troy Johnston singled Polanco in before Daytona pitching got Dalvy Rosario to pop out. Sean Reynolds then walked to load the bases, and Nasim Nuñez followed with a walk to force a run home. After a pitching change, Osiris Johnson hit a two-run single to give the Hammerheads their first and final lead.
Geremy Galindez struck out one in a scoreless inning, and Tommy Eveld whiffed three in two shutout innings. Justin Sterner struck out five in two perfect innings for a victory, his second of the season after joining the team just prior to opening day. Matt Givin will take his turn against the Turtles with a first pitch set for 7:05 PM.
