Marlins 10 Hawks 9: Marlins Win Wild Comeback
Sunday night's game between the Marlins and Hawks was a wild one. The Hawks took an early 3-0 lead on an RBI single from Ryan Purcell-Pilgrim, a steal of home by Andrew Payne, and an RBI knock from Brad Penney. They'd add two more runs in the top of the fourth to extend their lead on a passed ball and a sac fly from Fred Cutler.
In the bottom of the fourth the Marlins would finally get on the board, thanks to RBI doubles from Reid House and Jake Vincent.
The Hawks got those two runs right back in the top of the fifth, thanks to some passed balls and another steal of home, however the bottom of the fifth was when the fish would finally strike. Having been on a three game losing streak since their improbable 6-0 start to the season, the Marlins were in desperate need of a big inning, and in Anderson Traverse, they found a big swing that created a big inning. With the bases loaded, Traverse crushed a ball into the setting sun and onto Little Jubilee field to make it a one run game. James Taylor would hit an RBI single later in the frame to tie it, and after 5 innings it was Hawks 7, Marlins 7.
Fred Prosper delivered a big hit for the Hawks in the sixth, plating two with an RBI double. In the bottom of the sixth though, the Marlins would score three on a Riley Lockyer RBI single, and a 2 run error. Riley Lockyer would shut the door in the top of the seventh for the Marlins, and they would go back to the win column for the first time in a while.
