The Jupiter Hammerheads turned in a come-from-behind, extra-inning victory in Clearwater on Tuesday night. The rest of the Marlins organization wasn’t as lucky.
Single-A South Atlantic League
Greensboro Grasshoppers 0, Augusta Greenjackets 5
Edward Cabrera (0-1) started his first full-season single-A game for the Grasshoppers (4-2) with 2,989 in the stands at First National Bank Field.
Cabrera earned a 59 GameScore, allowing just one run on one hit in five innings of work. He struck out five, walked four, and got 45-of-81 pitches over the plate. Colton Hock whiffed five in three innings, allowing two hits (including a solo home run). Bryce Howe came on to pitch the ninth, and got rocked for three runs on three hits and two walks.
Aaron Knapp hit a single and drew a walk, and Isael Soto hit a double. Knapp was caught stealing, so Augusta (3-2) pitching faced just one over the minimum. Jackets starter Jason Bahr struck out nine in 5 2/3 innings.
High-A Florida State League
Jupiter Hammerheads 5, Clearwater Threshers 4 (10)
The Threshers (1-5) jumped out to an early lead, after Kevin Markham led off with a single and Arquimedes Gamboa followed with an RBI-double in the first inning. Later in the frame, Darick Hall grounded into a run-scoring double play to put the Threshers up, 2-0. Raul Rivas (1) added a third-inning solo shot to make it 3-0.
With 1,901 in attendance at Spectrum Field, Sharks (4-2) starter Sam Perez gave up three runs on five hits and four walks in six innings. He struck out a pair. Michael Mertz (1-0) earned the win, and Zech Lemond nailed down his first save.
Jupiter started their comeback in earnest in the sixth inning. Will Allen singled and Boo Vazquez doubled. After a Jarett Rindfleisch drew a walk to load the bases, Rodrigo Ayarza took another free pass to score Allen.
The score remained 3-1 until the Grasshoppers came to the plate in the ninth inning. Joe Dunand scored on an Allen double, and Corey Bird scored on a John Silviano RBI-single to force the game to extra innings.
Stone Garrett started the inning at second base offensively, as per the new minor league regulation. Boo Vazquez immediately hit a triple to take a 4-3 lead, then scored on a Rindfleisch single. The Threshers scored their run in the bottom of the inning on a Lemond wild pitch.
Allen led the Jupiter offense with two doubles and a single to go with his RBI. Silviano, Vazquez, and Rindfleisch each had a pair of hits.
