* Away game - not my summary *

Port Charlotte, FL- The Marauders (9-12) broke out of their offensive slump and middle infielders were the offensive catalysts in a 9-2 win over the Charlotte Stone Crabs (11-10). Tyler Waldron (W 2-1) returned to form on the hill, firing six innings without allowing an earned run. Waldron struck out three and did not walk a batter.

The Marauders streak of consecutive scoreless innings reached 24 before Bradenton got on the board in the third. In a scoreless game, Andy Vasquez hit a one-out double to right. Francisco Diaz and Gift Ngoepe each work walks in full counts, fouling off tough pitches after the count reached 3-2. With the bases loaded, Drew Maggi lined a bases clearing triple to right-center to open the scoring. Evan Chambers lifted a fly to center to score Maggi.

After allowing two unearned runs in the third, the Marauders got them back in the fifth. Ngoepe clubbed a solo home run with two outs. Maggi then walked, swiped his seventh base of the season, and scored on a single by Chambers.

Ngoepe added a two run homer in the seventh inning with Dan Grovatt aboard. Chambers scored the final insurance run in the eighth on a sac fly off the bat of Stefan Welch. Eliecer Navarro and Quinton Miller pitched scoreless relief to complete the victory.

The Marauders ended a three-game losing streak and snapped Charlotte's four-game winning streak. Tomorrow Bradenton opens a three-game set in Jupiter. First pitch is at 6:35. The game will air on News Talk 930 WLSS and online on
