The Dunedin Blue Jays won their second consecutive game for the first time since June 24th when the team swept a doubleheader against the St. Lucie Mets. The pitching staff held the Threshers under three runs in both games of the series so far. Wilgenis Alvarado picked up his first win of the season out of the bullpen, going four innings with three strikeouts and no earned runs allowed. Trent Palmer also put together a great start in his three innings. He gave up no runs, one hit, and struck out one. Over his last 6.0 innings, Palmer has no runs allowed and one hit. He has also kept opponents to a .059 opponent batting average over the same span.

It was an offensive show from the prospects in the lineup as home runs kept coming. Orelvis Martinez hit two home runs in the gam in back-to-back at-bats, which was part of a four-hit game with two singles. In the 3rd inning, Miguel Hiraldo hit his fourth home run of the season, and Orelvis Martinez followed right behind with a home run of his own. Hiraldo also had a triple in the game, driving in two runs on the day. The two prospects had seven combined hits part of the 12 total hits in the game for Dunedin. Anthony Morales brought in the other RBI with a single in the 4th inning. It was just his second RBI of the season. Dunedin scored in five of the nine innings. Strikeouts were still a problem on the night overall as the offense punched out 17 times as they look to correct that going forward in the series. Even with six runs, the offense left 10 runners on base, and they went just 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

Dunedin will try to make it three wins in a row to tie their second longest win streak of the season against Mick Abel tonight in Clearwater,
