St. Lucie Faces Jupiter In FSL Division Championship Series Tonight!
The St. Lucie Mets set the single-season record for wins in team history as they went on the road and defeated the Bradenton Marauders 5-4 in 10 innings on Saturday. They bested that record on Sunday with a 5-1 victory in the final game of the regular season to finish the year with an overall record 83-52 – 31 games over .500.
The 83 wins surpassed the total of the previous record of 81 set by the St. Lucie Mets during the 2000 season. The Mets also won 49 games in the first half of the season, the most in any half of a season in team history.
And now it’s onto the playoffs!
On Tuesday night, the St. Lucie Mets will face-off against the Jupiter Hammerheads in a best of three series for the Division Championship.
Right-hander Logan Verret, who went 2-0 with a 2.09 ERA in six starts for St. Lucie this season, will be the game one starter for the Mets. Including his time with Savannah, Verrett posted a 2.70 for the year and in 103.1 innings pitched he racked up 93 strikeouts to go with just 13 walks. I like our chances!
The winner of that series will advance to a best-of-five series against the other division winner for the coveted Florid State League Championship.
LETS GO METS!
