Big Inning Dooms Stone Crabs in Opener to Palm Beach

The Stone Crabs took an early lead against the Palm Beach Cardinals, but a big eighth inning handed the Stone Crabs a 5-2 loss on Wednesday night at Roger Dean Stadium.

The Stone Crabs jumped out to a two run lead in the first inning. Tyler Goeddel drove home Tommy Coyle to put the first run on the scoreboard. Goeddel later scored on an RBI single by Marty Gantt to make it 2-0 Stone Crabs.

Palm Beach cut the lead in half in the third on an RBI double by Ildemaro Vargas.

But it was the four run eighth inning that would doom the Stone Crabs. When it was over, the Stone Crabs could not recover from the deficit as they fell 5-2.

Parker Markel suffered the loss for the Stone Crabs.

The series continues on Thurday at Roger Dean Stadium.
