The Fort Myers Miracle won their fourth straight game Thursday night by blanking the Bradenton Marauders 1-0 at Hammond Stadium.
Pat Dean put together his second quality start for the Miracle, pitching 5 2/3 innings and scattering six hits. He struck out two.
Ricky Bowen pitched 1 2/3 in relief to earn the win. Edgar Ibarra struck out two in the eighth and struck out Wes Freeman to end the game for a five-out save.
The only run of the game came in the sixth inning. With the bases loaded and no outs, Josmil Pinto lifted a sacrifice fly to deep center field that easily scored Daniel Santana.
Santana broke out of a 1-for-13 slump by starting the sixth with a single to center. He advanced to second when Levi Michael walked and to third on a single by Angel Morales.
Reliever Eliecer Navarro got Dan Rohlfing to ground into an inning-ending double play to avoid further damage, but he was pinned with his first loss of the season.
Bradenton starter Colton Cain allowed just two hits and no runs in five strong innings.
Morales had the only two-hit night for the Miracle.
The Miracle (4-3) and Marauders (2-5) play again at 6:30 p.m. Friday in Bradenton. Both teams return to Hammond Stadium on Saturday.
To commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, the first 750 fans Saturday will receive a free seat cushion.
