DUNEDIN, Fla. (May 26, 2022) – The St. Lucie Mets won their second straight game by defeating the Dunedin Blue Jays 7-4 on Thursday at TD Ballpark.

The Mets jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first four innings. Jack-Thomas Wold got the scoring started with a two-out RBI single in the first inning. The Mets scored three runs without a hit in the second inning. Alex Ramirez lofted a sac fly and Omar De Los Santos hit a ball that was thrown away, allowing Vincent Perozo and Junior Tilien to score for a 4-0 lead.

Raul Beracierta crushed a two-run homer in the third inning off Soenni Martinez to make it 6-0 Mets.

De Los Santos hit a sac fly in the fourth inning to bring home Kevin Villavicencio to put the Mets up 7-0.

Mets starter Dominic Hamel cruised for most of the game. He retired the first eight batters he faced and 10 of the first 11. Gabriel Martinez got the Blue Jays on the board with a one-out homer in the fourth.

The next time up Martinez cranked a long three-run homer on Hamel’s 95th and final pitch of the night to make it 7-4.
