Determined to not let Mother Nature steal the show, the Stone Crabs and Fort Myers faced off at a soggy Hammond Stadium. But when play started, it was the Stone Crabs who fought their way to a 3-1 victory of their South Division rival.

After the hour and a half rain delay, the Stone Crabs wasted no time in taking the lead in the first frame. Willie Argo led off the game with a single to right. He then stole second and later moved to third on a single by Jake Hager. Jeff Malm then drew a walk to load the bases. Alejandro Segovia worked a bases loaded walk to score Argo and give the Stone Crabs a 1-0 lead.

The Stone Crabs added to their lead in the sixth inning. Segovia and Jake DePew reached safely with singles. Then Kes Carter drove home both of them with a triple to center to increase the lead to 3-1.

The Miracle scored their lone run in the bottom of the sixth inning. A sac fly by Adelin Mejia scored Levi Michael to help the Miracle avoid the shut-out.

The Stone Crabs held on for the 3-1 victory. Jake Partridge was the winning pitcher for the Stone Crabs while Nate Garcia picked up the save. Manuel Soliman was the losing pitcher for Fort Myers.
