Hammerheads drop third game of the series

By Luke Halpin / Jupiter Hammerheads | July 28, 2018 10:14 PM

The tables were turned on Jupiter as Dunedin was the team to score five runs late in Saturday night's game.

Unlike Friday's victory when the Hammerheads scored five runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to secure the win, in Friday's game while the score was tied 2-2 the Blue Jays scored five runs in the top of the eighth to win 7-2.

Although Jupiter lost by five runs, the Hammerheads recorded just one less hit that the Blue Jays.

No player had a multi-hit game but seven different Hammerheads did manage to get a hit. Lazaro Alonso and Aaron Knapp were the only two to record an RBI, Alonso now has five RBI in the last three games.  

Sandy Alcantara started on the mound for the Hammerheads on MLB rehab assignment, the Marlins number two prospect pitched four 2/3 innings allowing just one run and recording three strikeouts.

Ethan Clark was pitching for Jupiter when Dunedin went on their scoring spree. Clark went for two 2/3 innings and recorded four strikeouts. While he give up six runs during his two 2/3 inning span only one of those runs were earned.

Costly errors proved to be a deciding factor for Jupiter in Saturday's matchup.

The Hammerheads take on the Blue Jays in the final game of the series Sunday at 1 P.M. Tickets and more information can be found at Rogerdeanchevroletstadium.com/tickets-events.
