After being shut out the night before, the Jupiter Hammerheads’ offense surges on Wednesday night. The Hammerheads outslug the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels by a score of 9-5 to even the series at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium.
The Mighty Mussels got the first run on the board in the first inning before the bats woke up. Yiddi Cappe electrified the crowd at RDCS as he raced around the bases for an inside-the-park homer in the third inning. It was the first home run for the Marlins’ No. 12 overall prospect according to MLB Pipeline.
