In the eighth, Garrett McGowan singled and Ben Miller reached on an error before Luke Powell’s single drove in Garrett. Miller later scored on a wild pitch after Peninsula made a pitching change.

Brendan Bean got the win with 1.2 innings of relief. He struck out four and walked one. Starter Tyler Wehrle gave up a run on three hits with 10 strikeouts and two walks for the Marlins.

The Marlins were scheduled to host Wilmington Saturday at 7, weather permitting.
