Fort Myers 4, Lakeland 10
Cameron Maybin seems to have found his stroke. He homered for the 3rd time in the last 2 days (one each in 3 straight games). He also added 2 singles and a walk. Wilkin Ramirez is off to a good start also and added a triple amongst his 3 hits. Maybe this is the year it all comes together for him. Justin Justice also had 2 hits.

Burke Badenhop started and pitched 5 innings of shutout ball before surrendering 2 runs in the 6th.

West Michigan 1 Lansing 3
Awesome outing by Caps starter Christopher Cody. Cody went 6 2/3 innings surrendering only 2 hits and a walk while fanning 11! Randor Bierd relieved and allowed 2 hits, 2 runs (1 earned) on no walks and 4 K’s. Unfortunately the offense and defense didn’t support the pitching. James Skelton had 2 hits to lead the offense. Scott Sizemore continues to struggle seeing his average drop to .056. He did however get hit by his 3rd pitch in the last 2 games.
