Lakeland 4 Jupiter 3
This was the first, and as it turned out only, game of a doubleheader. The 2nd game was rained out. But in this 7 inning tilt, Wilkin Ramirez was 3 for 3 with a walk. It appears that all the tools are finally starting to come together with his batting average up to 289. He has 10 homers and 23 stolen bases. He still K’s 4 times for every walk so he’s far from perfect, and hasn’t had sustained success yet, but the results for the 21 year old are encouraging. Angel Castro allowed 3 runs on 4 hits and 3 walks over 5 innings with 6 strikeouts.
