Tritons score winning run on 8th inning balk

By JIM LINETTE ( , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Two balks in the bottom of the eighth inning made it easier for the Mariner Tritons to steal a 5-4 victory from South Fort Myers Thursday night.

A leadoff walk to Joey Morales in the eighth started the game-winning rally. Morales, who scored three times in the game, took second base on the first balk and advanced to third on a groundout. The second balk of the inning allowed Morales to score the winning run.

Born Graeber, who pitched the last three innings in relief of Jacob Martin, got the win for the Tritons.

Tony Lopez was the only Triton with more than one hit and none of the team's eight hits went for extra bases.
