Jake Sabol started for Traverse City (39-24) and went six innings, allowing two runs on four hits with five strikeouts and four walks. Florence (35-28) scored twice in the fourth and added another run off reliever Kyle Teague in the seventh.
The win extended Traverse City’s lead in the East to four games over the Freedom. The Beach Bums came into the series with a three-game lead.
“We’re super happy to get the win here,” said Kometani. “Florence is a really good team. We’ve got to stay on top of our game and just do what we can to win as many games as we can.”
The Beach Bums start a three-game series at home against the Frontier Greys tonight.
