(Suimmary by Marauders radio announcer, Nate March - Pictures after)

The Marauders (23-28) used four home runs to secure an 8-4 win over the Fort Myers Miracle on Friday night at McKechnie Field. The four clouts matched the most home runs the Marauders have hit in a single game since the franchise came to Bradenton. The win is the Marauders fourth straight, and eighth in the team's last 10 contests.

Fort Myers starter Manuel Soliman (L, 1-6) served up three long balls in the bottom of the first inning. Willy Garcia crushed a two-out home run to left. With 16 homers this season, Garcia has the second highest total by a Marauder in a season. Dan Gamache walked following the homer, and promptly scored on Jose Osuna's eighth dinger of the season. Jacob Stallings went back-to-back with Osuna to make it 5-0 Bradenton after just one inning. Soliman surrendered an unearned run in the second to make it 6-0.

Zack Dodson (W, 6-8) took full advantage of all the run support by cruising through the first four innings with a shutout intact. A two out rally in the top of the fifth turned into a four-run frame for the Miracle, capped by D.J. Hicks fourth home run of the season. Hicks hit a three-run bomb to make the score 6-4.

Emmanuel De Leon and Zac Fuesser held the Miracle off the board over the final four innings. De Leon faced Hicks with the bases loaded and one out in the seventh, but escaped the jam. The righty got Hicks to chase a slider down and in for a strikeout, then induced a fly out to center by Matt Koch. Fuesser earned his second save of the season but recording the final six outs.

Bradenton snagged the first of two insurance runs in the eighth. Gamache had an RBI-single against Steven Gruver to plate Gift Ngoepe. In the eighth, Stallings hammered the first pitch from Chad Rodgers to left centerfield for his second bomb of the night and fifth of the season. Four of the five have come against the Miracle.

Guys in the bullpen were bored so they took turns trying to throw a baseball into a recycle bin. Small hole on the side of it just bigger than the baseball.

Fuesser's dad disagrees.

P.S. Did anybody make the shot into the recycle container, LGM?
