Game 1: Kentrail Davis scored on a single by Shea Vucinich with two outs in the bottom of the 13th inning to lift Brevard County to a 5-4 win over Lakeland in the continuation of Sunday’s suspended game. The game resumed Monday with two runners on for the Manatees with no one out in the bottom of the 10th inning, but Zach Samuels shut down Brevard to end the threat. Lakeland managed one hit in Monday’s action with Sean Roof singling, but was stranded at second base. — RECAPBOX SCORE

Game 2: Hunter Morris’ home run to lead off the bottom of the sixth snapped a 5-5 tie and lifted Brevard County to a 6-5 win over Lakeland on Monday. The Flying Tigers scored solo runs in the second and third innings to take a 2-1 lead, but the Manatees put up a four spot in the fourth inning. A Wade Gaynor two-run homer in the fifth cut the lead to 5-4 while singles by Corey Jones, Michael Rockett and Eric Roof tied the game at 5-5 in the sixth. Jordan Lennerton had two singles for Lakeland as eight of the nine starters each had base hits for the Flying Tigers. Lakeland now returns home on Tuesday to open a three-game series against Daytona. — RECAPBOX SCORE
