Lane Thomas homered and had two hits, driving in two as the Dunedin Blue Jays beat the Bradenton Marauders 7-3 at LECOM Park in Florida State League play on Tuesday.

Thomas led off the game against Bradenton starter Taylor Hearn with his fourth homer. He broke a 3-3 tie in the eighth with a double off Yunior Montero (4-3), the second of four Blue Jays hits in the inning.

The Blue Jays built a 3-0 lead in the fourth on a sacrifice fly by Juan Kelly and an infield grounder by Carl Wise.

Bradenton erased the 3-0 hole in the bottom of the inning. Will Craig and Logan Hill started the inning with back-to-back singles off rehabbing major league pitcher Aaron Sanchez. After a walk and an RBI grounder, Christian Kelley and Kevin Krause hit back-to-back singles to drive in the other runs.

Ryan Borucki (4-4) got the win with four innings of scoreless, one-hit relief.
