A tendon injury in his left hand kept Fedrick Cardona out of Gainesville’s starting lineup Wednesday, but didn’t prevent him from scoring the go-ahead run in the bottom of the sixth inning against Heritage at Ivey-Watson Field. Despite the pre-game injury that made the Red Elephants’ shortstop a late scratch from the lineup card, he came around to score after he entered as a courtesy runner at first base to bring about a 3-2 win. The win comes in the first game of the week for Gainesville (13-3, 10-1 Region 8-AAAAA) against Heritage, with a trip to Conyers for the second game of the series Friday.
