Madison Boer and two relievers combined to limit Daytona to just one hit as the Fort Myers Miracle defeated the Cubs 4-0 Sunday at Hammond Stadium.
Making his seventh start with the Miracle, Boer gave up a leadoff single to Greg Rohan in the second inning, but that was the only hit allowed by Miracle pitching.
Boer struck out five in five innings of work. He walked two and committed an error in the third that loaded the bases, but pitched out of the jam by getting Richard Jones to ground out to Andy Leer at first base.
The Miracle got all the runs they needed in the first when Oswaldo Arcia bashed his team-leading seventh homer of the season, a two-run shot, to make it 2-0.
Angel Morales singled home Levi Michael in the second and Josmil Pinto drove in Arcia with a double in the third to complete the scoring.
Daytona had one last chance to make it a game in the eighth when Nelvin Fuentes walked the first two batters. Fuentes got a groundout and a strikeout before Matt Hauser came on and got a groundout to first for the final out.
Hauser pitched a perfect ninth to pick up his first save.
Boer earned his first victory in a Miracle uniform. P.J. Francescon took the loss for Daytona.
The Miracle (22-34) go for a split in the four-game series with the Cubs (23-31) at 7:05 p.m. Monday at Hammond Stadium.
