Bradenton resumed its game against Brevard County that was suspended on Monday night, securing the win in 10 innings, then dropped its regularly scheduled game on Tuesday at McKechnie Field. The regularly scheduled game was called in the top of the ninth inning due to rain.
The suspended game was resumed in the seventh inning with the score tied 4-4. The game went to extras with the score unchanged. With two in scoring position and two down in the 10th, Gregory Polanco grounded a ball to first which was misplayed by Nick Ramirez, allowing the winning run to score.
The scheduled Wednesday game featured a duel on the mound between Eliecer Navarro and Drew Gagnon. Navarro pitched six innings, striking out nine and surrendering only a run-scoring double to Ramirez that snuck in down the right field line in the first. Gagnon was even better though, pitching seven perfect innings and striking out 10.
