Stone Crabs Suffer Big Loss in Jupiter

For the first time this season, the Stone Crabs suffered a big loss at the hands of an opponent as they fell to the Jupiter Hammerheads 9-1 in the series opener Monday night at Roger Dean Stadium.

The Hammerheads jumped out in front in the first inning. Austin Dean singled to short and later scored on a sac fly by Felix Munoz to give them a 1-0 lead.

Jupiter scored a pair of runs in the third inning. A pair of errors on the first two batters of the inning led to the first run. Then Munoz collected his second run of the game with a line drive to center to make it 3-0.

Jupiter strung together three consecutive one run innings from the fourth to the sixth to increase the score to 6-0.

The Stone Crabs finally got on the scoreboard in the seventh inning. Joey Rickard drew a walk to open the inning. Jake Bauers followed with a single to right, advancing Rickard to second. Rickard later scored on a line drive by Juniel Querecuto to score their lone run of the night.

The Hammerheads added three more runs in the eighth inning to hand the Stone Crabs a 9-1 loss.

Jacob Daria suffered the loss, this first of the season. Scott Lyman was the winning pitcher for Jupiter.
