Gonzalez leads Palm Beach to 1-0 win over Tampa

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Edgar Gonzalez allowed just two hits over six innings, leading the Palm Beach Cardinals over the Tampa Tarpons in a 1-0 win on Wednesday.

Gonzalez (3-5) picked up the win after he struck out six and walked two.

The game's only run was scored in the bottom of the sixth inning. After leading off the inning with a single, Dennis Ortega advanced to second on a single by Rayder Ascanio, went to third on an error, and then scored on a single by Justin Toerner.

Miguel Yajure (1-5) went six innings, allowing one run and four hits while striking out three to take the tough loss in the Florida State League game.

The Tarpons were blanked for the fourth time this season, while the Cardinals' staff recorded their fourth shutout of the year.
