FORT MYERS, Fla. (June 4, 2021) – The Fort Myers Mighty Mussels used a pair of two-out rallies to take down St. Lucie 3-2 at Hammond Stadium Friday, earning their fifth consecutive win.

The victory extends the Mussels’ (15-13) longest winning streak of the season, giving Fort Myers its first series win of 2021.
