WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Jupiter Hammerheads are Florida State League champions for the first time.

Jupiter defeated the Clearwater Threshers 7-4 in the championship game Wednesday night at the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches.

Displaced by construction to Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, the Hammerheads took home their first-ever league championship at their home away from home.

Jacob Miller earned the win on the mound for Jupiter after lasting four innings, allowing two runs on four hits without a walk while striking out two.

Led by first-year manager Nelson Prada, the Hammerheads led the league in ERA (4.12).
