In his final tuneup before the AA playoffs, RHP Logan Verrett was solid: 5 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR.
Frank Francisco handled the eighth, yielding a hit and a walk while fanning one.
On the night he won the Eastern League MVP award, Allan Dykstra (.274/.436/.504 – 121 gms) was 1-for-3 with a homer, his 21st, and two RBI.
DH Jayce Boyd had a nice day, going 4-for-5 with a double and three RBI to close out the St. Lucie season.
Jeurys Familia threw a scoreless first inning in his first rehab appearance for St. Lucie. I wonder if he will join the Gnats or Cyclones for a few more innings in the next week.

This game took 2:55 to score three runs. I do not know why and I was there.
