Lakeland 3 at Dunedin 5

AJ Wideman got the start for the DJays and held Lakeland scoreless for the first 5 innings - helped in part by an assist at home: Butler to Gonzalez to Corrente. Wideman allowed 2 runs in the 6th - 1 unearned - before exiting the game. Connor Falkenbach was back from NH and picked up the save.

Dunedin scored 3 in the 7th to take the lead after trailing 3-2. David Corrente led off the inning with a HR. That was followed by a Lakeland error and 4 walks to score the final two runs.
