Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets ________________________________________
JUPITER 3, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)
The FSL playoffs got underway yesterday, and things didn't end all that well for the Mets. Rain was a factor all night, causing a rain delay of over two and a half hours. Christian Yelich had a great night for the Hammerheads as they took the early lead in the series. Game two will be this evening in St. Lucie.

The Cyclones lost, Batavia was postponed, and Auburn won. With those results in mind, either a Brooklyn win tonight or a loss by the Muckdogs in either game of their doubleheader will Clinch a playoff berth for the Cyclones. Batavia's doubleheader gets underway at 4 PM EST, the 'Clones are scheduled for 6:05 PM EST. Hopefully Brooklyn gets better work from it's bullpen tonight, as 7 runs allowed in 4 innings of work just doesn't make winning easy.
