Chris White hit a towering, one-out, walk-off homer over the right field fence to lift Lakeland to a 4-3 win over Palm Beach in the opening game of a four-game series. Lakeland had taken a 2-0 lead in the first on a two-run double by Jordan Lennerton and then added a solo run in the third on back-to-back doubles by Francisco Martinez and Ben Guez. Palm Beach scored twice in the fourth and the game stayed that way in the fifth as rains forced a 54 minute delay.The Cardionals tied the game in the sixth on a home run. Jose Ortega came on in relief in the eight and struck out six of the seven batters he faced to get the win. Game two of the series is Thursday at 7 pm.
