  • The 1st 2 Palm Beach batters in the 3rd reached base via HBP and error respectively, which sparked a 3 run inning. The rally opened up a 5 run lead that they would not relinquish.
  • Luke Voit opened the scoring for Palm Beach with a 1st inning 2 run triple. He's now batting .337/.415/.519 in 118 plate appearances in the Florida State League.

Rowan Wick has more homers (7) than every team in the league save for Jamestown. 10 games is a very small sample, but State College games have been very fun to watch so far.
