After Two Straight Losses, St Lucie Defeat Daytona 4-1 To Get Back in Win Column

The St. Lucie Mets dropped their last two games to the Charlotte Stone Crabs, but on Independence Day, the Mets received a solid pitching performance from starter Kyle Wilson, who tossed four innings, allowing one run on seven hits, walking two and striking out two.

The Bullpen matched the starter, as Joe Cavallaro tossed 4.1 innings of relief, allowing no runs on one hit, with a walk and two strikeouts, earning the win, while Marcel Renteria recorded his second save of the year tossing .2 shutout innings.

The Tortugas jumped to an early 1-0 lead in the top of the second on an RBI single off the bat of Bruce Yari.

But in the bottom of the third, St. Lucie tied the game on an RBI single from Mitch Ghelfi, then took a 3-1 lead on a 2-RBI double off the bat of Jeremy Vasquez.

The Mets added to their lead with a sac fly off the bat of Blake Tiberi to extend the lead to 4-1.

Then the bullpens took over and shutdown both offenses the rest of the game.

Both teams are at it again on Friday with a 6:30 PM start.
