Palm Beach showed some signs of life throughout Saturday's game however were unable to complete the comeback, eventually falling to Bradenton 6-4.
Cardinals' pitcher Angel Rondon was scheduled to start the game but was promoted to Double-A Springfield before the series. Reliever Zach Prendergast filled in that vacant rotation spot as a spot start. While manager Dann Bilardello would have hoped to get a longer outing from the 24-year-old, Prendergast lasted just 1/3 of an inning after walking four and allowing three earned runs. 
Patrick Dayton came in and threw 3 1/2 scoreless innings and was followed by Mitchell Osnowitz who threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings of his own.
Facing a 3-0 deficit heading into the third inning, Palm Beach scored a single run in the third on a Zach Kirtley RBI double and another lone run in the fourth on a Nick Dunn double, cutting the Bradenton lead to just one. 
The visiting Marauders rallied for three more runs in the sixth to make it a 6-2 game. 
Once again, Palm Beach would not go down with a fight and with two runs already home in the eighth, had the tying run at the plate but were unable to capitalize. 
Zach Kirtley and Michael Perri both had multi-hit games.
The teams will play a rubber match on Sunday at 1 PM from Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium.
