The Fort Myers Miracle's were held to four singles Tuesday night in a 6-0 loss to the Palm Beach Cardinals.

Miracle pitcher Brady Anderson pitched well despite his final line showing four earned runs. In a scoreless game in the fourth, he allowed a two-run home run to the Cardinals' Chris Chinea to left field. He then put up zeros through to the seventh when he allowed the first two hitters to reach.

Keaton Steele came in to replace Anderson in a 2-0 game before Palm Beach plated four runs with four more consecutive baserunners. Each time, the Cardinals moved everyone over 90 feet, quickly upping the lead to 6-0.

Andy Young, Luke Dykstra and Thomas Spitz all collected RBI-singles as the Cardinals put the game away in the seventh.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals' Ramon Santos (W, 3-2) dazzled in just his second start of the year. He also has 21 relief appearances. The hard-throwing righty, who now stands 3-2 on the year, allowed just two hits over seven strong innings, striking out a season high seven.

For Anderson it was his seventh loss on the year against five wins.

With the loss, the Miracle falls to 27-17 in the second half. The Cardinals are 22-22.

The Miracle look to salvage a win in the three-game series tonight at Palm Beach with left Lewis Thorpe on the mound. He will oppose Connor Jones with first pitch at 6:30 p.m.

The Miracle return home for a four-game series against Dunedin this weekend. The first game is Thursday night at Hammond Stadium. Game time is 7:05 p.m.
