This game was tight until the seventh inning.  Through six innings Clearwater led 1-0 with a run in the fifth off Dunedin starter Brian Wolfe.  Wolfe was acquired over the winter in the Koskie deal.  Clearwater had scored one run on five hits through six innings and manager Omar Malave sent Wolfe back out for the seventh.  The Phillies scored a run on three singles and a hit batter when Wolfe was pulled.  Brad Mumma gave up another single and then a grand slam to put the game out of reach.
