News Release

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (June 14, 2017) - The Jupiter Hammerheads enjoyed a lopsided 14-1 win over the St. Lucie Mets on Wednesday at First Data Field.

Jupiter jumped on Mets starter Joseph Shaw in the first two innings. Hammerheads left fielder John Silviano hit a three-run homer in the first inning and bashed a grand slam in the second inning to put the Hammerheads up 10-0.

That was plenty of run support for Jupiter starter Trevor Richards. The FSL All Star limited the Mets to three hits and one run over five innings to earn the win.

Shaw was charged with 10 runs on eight hits in one inning.

Marlins first baseman Justin Bour (ankle) made a rehab start and played four innings at first base. He went 2 for 2 with a double, two RBIs and two runs.

Jupiter scored six runs in the first inning, four runs in the second inning and two runs in the third inning to build a 12-0 lead.

Silviano was held in check after the first two innings but he still finished with seven RBIs.

In a bright spot for St. Lucie, lefty reliever Kevin Canelon pitched the final two innings scoreless. He has now allowed just one earned run in his last 30 innings.

The Mets (30-34) and Hammerheads (31-34) conclude their four-game series at First Data Field on Thursday. First is set for 6:30 p.m. It is the final game before the Florida State League All Star break.
