By Abby Piper / Jupiter Hammerheads | August 4, 2019 8:23 AM

With rain in the area once again, the Jupiter Hammerheads and Florida Fire Frogs squeezed in one game of their scheduled doubleheader but fell to the Fire Frogs, 2-0.

On MLB Rehab Assignment, RHP Austin Brice pitched a perfect first inning with two strikeouts to start the game.

Taylor Braley came in for four innings without giving up a run to Florida, but a 2-run homer off Cason Sherrod in the sixth were the only runs for the evening, giving Florida a 2-0 win.

Colton Hock pitched a hitless, scoreless inning to finish the game, but the Hammerheads couldn't stage a comeback.

Only a few Hammerheads found success as the plate. Jerar Encarnacion hit 2-3 and shortstop Demetrius Sims, besides playing well defensively once again, went 2-3 with a double.

Game two of the doubleheader was postponed and will be played as part of another doubleheader this morning, starting at 11am at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium.
