TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Estevan Florial hit an RBI single in the top of the eighth inning to lead the Tampa Tarpons to a 5-4 win over the Dunedin Blue Jays in the first game of a doubleheader on Sunday.

Pablo Olivares scored the go-ahead run on the single after he started the inning on second.

The Tarpons scored three runs in the seventh before Dunedin answered in the bottom of the inning when Kevin Vicuna hit an RBI single, bringing home Demi Orimoloye to tie the game 4-4.
