Yesterday's Game(s)
The start to Game 1 was delayed by one hour and forty nine minutes due to several rain showers in the area. The game was also delayed again in the top of the sixth inning with the score tied at three. After a delay of approximately one hour and ten minutes, the game was re-started. Both teams scored once in the sixth inning, but it took an extra inning for the Lakeland Flying Tigers to take the lead and eventually win 5-4. Brad Harman went three for four and had two RBIs while Lou Marson and P.J. Antoniato both went two for three. Marson hit his seventh home run of the year in the fourth inning. Starter Alex Concepcion struck out seven in his five innings before the in-game rain delay.

Things looked bleak in Game 2 for the Clearwater Threshers down 3-1 in the bottom of the seventh inning with one out on the scoreboard. September 1 had arrived. Hector Made walked which brought up Brian Burgamy. Burgamy smacked the game-tying home run (8) to right field. Brad Harman followed that up with a home run (13) of his own to give the Threshers a huge come-from-behind 4-3 victory.
