The Fort Myers Miracle started a seven-game homestand at Hammond Stadium Thursday night riding a seven-game winning streak.

The Miracle (21-4), and in first place in the Florida State League's South Division, are facing the St. Lucie Mets (16-9) for the first three games with the Tampa Yankees opening a four-game visit on Sunday.

Wednesday's game at Clearwater was postponed by rain, the last game of the series with the Miracle having won the first three games of the series.

Angel Morales delivered an RBI double to spark the Miracle's 5-2 win at Clearwater on Tuesday. He added a solo home run in the seventh inning to pad the lead to three at the time.

Miracle starter D.J. Baxendale improved to 4-0 in five starts. The University of Arkansas product allowed just two runs and five hits in six innings. He struck out five.

The Miracle have now seven games in a row, and their 21-4 record gives them an .840 winning percentage which is the best in all of affiliated baseball. Only Delfines de Ciudad del Carmen of the Mexican League has more wins (22) in all of affiliated baseball.

The Miracle hold a five-game lead in the South Division standings over the Mets and 8 1/2 games ahead of the third-place Palm Beach Cardinals (13-13).
