The Fort Myers Miracle (42-24) used solo home runs by Zander Wiel and Mitchell Kranson to defeat the Jupiter Hammerheads (32-33) 4-1 Saturday night at Hammond Stadium.

The win is Fort Myers' 13th in a row at home and 46th on the season, breaking a franchise record for home wins.

Lachlan Wells struck out seven over five two-hit innings and left the game in line for the win. Wiel's home run came in the bottom of the second against Hammerheads starter Scott Squier. The Hammerheads (32-33) tied the game in the sixth with Tyler Jay (3-0) on the mound when Joe Dunand ripped a two-out double down the right field line to score Junior Arrojo. Jay came back strong by fanning five over his two innings.

In the bottom of the sixth, Kranson ripped a solo shot to right off Lukas Schiraldi (0-2) to give the Miracle (42-24, 75-59) a 2-1 lead. Fort Myers added a tally in the seventh on Ariel Montesino's RBI-single and one more in the eighth on Kranson's RBI-double to plate Wiel. Kranson delivered three extra-base hits on the night with two doubles and his tater.

Tom Hackimer held the Hammerheads hitless over the final two frames to seal the win for the Miracle.

The magic number stands at one with Charlotte still to complete their Saturday contest. The Miracle and Hammerheads play one more at 11:05 a.m. Sunday in the regular season finale.
