FORT MYERS Brian Schales drove in three runs, and the Miracle survived a ninth inning threat to beat the Charlotte Stone Crabs, 7-5, Wednesday night at Hammond Stadium.

Schales' first RBI, a single in the fourth, gave the Miracle a 1-0 lead. After Charlotte struck for two runs in the top of the fifth to grab a 2-1 advantage, the Miracle quickly tied the game in the bottom of the inning on a Jacob Pearson RBI double.

Fort Myers pulled ahead 3-2 in the sixth on an Ernie De La Trinidad single.

In the seventh, the Miracle erupted for four runs. Schales knocked in two with a double off the wall in left, before De La Trinidad collected his second RBI of the night with a sacrifice fly. Yeltsin Encarnacion made it 7-2 in favor of the home team with a run scoring single.

Charlotte scored three times in the ninth, capitalizing on three Miracle errors before Zach Neff retired Moises Gomez on a fly ball to center with the tying runs on base to end the game.

Tyler Watson started for the Miracle and tossed four no-hit innings. The left-hander walked three and struck out six. He threw 84 pitches, 48 strikes.

Johan Quezada (7-1) earned the win despite surrendering six hits in 2.2 innings. The right-hander allowed two runs.

Neff collected the seven-out save, his fifth save of the year.

The Miracle go for the three-game sweep tonight in Fort Myers. First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m.
