Shane Dyer recorded the save, providing 2 1/3 innings of scoreless relief with 2 strikeouts. The series wraps up on Thurday, Alex Colome will start the decisive game three on Thursday night.


  1. Why is Barnese on the disabled list?

  2. If the Stone Crabs are going to start Colome they would be wise to get a reliever up as soon as he finishes his warm up pitches. He has a tendency to give up 4 or 5 runs early before settling down. I don't think Charlotte wants to start a one and done game 5 runs in the hole.
