by Miami Red Sox (Premier Division)
The Red Sox were down a run through five, then gave up one in the fifth and four more runs in the sixth, including a dramatic play at the plate where Ray Longaray slid into Mitch Baker and knocking the ball loose in dramatic fashion. Gabriel Collazo, making his first start in ages, had held the big hitting Canes to a few base hits up until the sixth. But the Red Sox made it a game by scoring three runs in the top of the ninth and loading the bases before Canes closer shut the door with a final strikeout. Canes win – Sox lose bottom line.

The Red Sox dug an early hole to go down 4-0 but the team rallied in the sixth for two runs and then two more in the seventh. Finally, the Sox took a two run lead on Ariel Blanco’s clutch two run single in the eighth inning. That set up the matchup between Cory Casuso, the Red Sox starter who threw another complete game, and the top of the Dodgers lineup coming up in the bottom of the ninth. Then, with two strikes, two outs and two runners, down to his last strike, Dodgers Danny Chiappi delivered a clutch two run single with a liner down the first base line to tie the game. One swing later, another single down the third base line by Dodger Cooper Roberts left the Sox on the field. Hats off to the Cooper, Danny and the Dodgers, who absolutely earned their first win of the season in classic comeback style.

It was a very hot and humid day at Coral Gables High School. The D-Backs came out in the top of the 1st with 2 runs on 3 hits for an early 2-0 lead. The Black Bats came up in the bottom of the 1st and had 2 outs with runners on 2nd and 3rd when Eddie Capote and Andy Chavarriaga collided in short left field, causing Eddie Capote to damage his ACL, MCL, and miniscus. Eddie will be having surgery and is out for the rest of the season. (Picture can be viewed at On the play, the ball was dropped and 2 runs scored as a result for a 2-2 tie game after 1 inning. The Bats would put up a run in the 2nd and 2 in the 3rd, while the D-Backs kept pace with 3 runs in the 3rd for a 5-5 tie game. The D-Backs would score 2 runs in the 5th, answerd by a run for The Bats for a 6-5 D-Backs lead after 5 innings. The Bats would regain the lead in the 6th with 2 more runs, but The D-Backs would plate a run in the 7th for an 8-8 tie game going into the bottom of the 7th. With time expiring, The Bats would capitalize on a crucial error that would have ended the game in a tie and singled in the winning run to end this exciting game for a D-Backs 9-8 loss. Andy Chavarriaga (3 runs scored) and Xavier Ubiera (4 RBI’s) each went 3-4 on the day. Larry Hernandez chipped in 2 hits. John Delgado had 3 RBI’s. Jay Habacht pitched 4 innings, giving up 2 earned runs and recorded a no decision. Alex Dickson for The Bats pitched 6 innings and also recorded a no decision. Great game to Ichiro and The Black Bats!

Brewers will regroup for nxt game! Go Brewers!
Furious 5 run rally in ninth nets win for Tigers…
by Davie Tigers (Senior Division)
Tigers would play yet another close and exciting game against long time rival, Miami Brewers. Trailing the entire game, the Tigers wouldn’t quit, scoring 5 in the bottom of the ninth to get a much needed win. The home team Tigers would send Ray out to the hill to start. But hard hitting Brewers would drop 3 quick runs in the 1st as George, Bengi, Bryan, and Popeye would hit consecutive singles off Ray. Ray would get out of the inning on a 6-4-3 double play, the 1st of three that the Tigers would turn on the day. Facing off against longtime Brewers pitcher, George Kenhan, the Tigers would go down quietly one, two, three in the bottom of the 1st. Then in the top of the 2nd, Tigers would get 2 quick outs, one off of a diving stab at second by Coach Carnevale. But the top of the order for Brewers would do it again as George and Bengi would get back to back hits. Bryan would walk and all runners would be brought home by a bases clearing double by clean up hitter, Popeye. Tigers would get out of the inning looking at a 6-0 deficit, and with the Tigers going down meekly against George in the bottom half, things were not looking good. But Ray would settle down, only allowing 1 more run and that would come in the 6th. In the 5th with a runner on 1st, Carlos would make a sweet sliding catch in right. Then Ray would start the 1-6-3 double play to get out of the inning. In the bottom of the 5th, Tigers would finally break through against George, scoring 2 runs. Ricardo, Carlos, and Andy would each get base hits, and Mike Orris would knock them in with a hit of his own. Then in top of the 6th, George and Bengi would strike again, getting back to back hits. Then with Bryan reaching on an error, the Brewers were in a position to blow the game wide open. But the infield would redeem itself, getting a force at second for the 1st out. Then with a hard grounder to 3rd, Mike would fire to Coach Carnevale for the inning ending 5-4-3 double play! Tigers would then tack on 2 more in the bottom of the 6th. Tigers would face the Brewers hard throwing righty reliever in that inning. Danny and Sneider would rip back to back hits to start the rally. A wild pitch would bring home Danny who had doubled and advanced to third on Sneider’s single. But with 2 outs in the inning, it looked like the Tigers would come away with only one run. But with 2 outs and 2 strikes, Coach Carnevale would rip an RBI double down the line at 3rd to bring home Sneider. Max would relieve Ray in the 8th, and despite the Brewers tacking on a run, Max would pitch well to keep the game tight. The Tigers would do nothing in the bottom of the 8th, setting the stage for the 9th inning drama to follow. Scary moment to start the ninth as Big C would get plunked off the top of the helmet. He would be okay and would be replaced by a runner. Then the rally would begin as Danny and Sneider would again get back to back hits. With the bases loaded, Jose would get the Tigers within 2, with a 2 RBI opposite field double to right. Next batter would be Coach Carnevale. Battling the hard throwing righty, Coach Carnevale would foul off several pitches before hitting a hard grounder past the the third baseman for the game tying 2 RBI base hit. With the Brewers left fielder electing to throw home in an attempt to nail Jose, Coach C would wisely head to second to put the winning run in scoring position. Then with the Brewers electing to intentionally walk Adam, Ricardo would come up with a chance to win the ballgame. But the Brewers righty would get a huge strikeout to increase the tension and excitement in the 9th. Stepping up to the plate would be Carlos Fernandez. The big lefty, batting 5th for the 1st time this season, would come up clutch once more for the Tigers, getting a hit up the middle that would score the Coach from 2nd for the winning run! Great game as always against George and the hard hitting Brewers! Tigers look to build on this momentum as we head into next week’s match up with Cardinals…

Good Win
by South Florida Rays (Senior Division)
It was a pretty decent day to play Baseball. After 3 weeks off We finally get some action. The Stingrays and the Whitesox come in short handed with only 9 players each but enough to make it happen. Kevin Parsons pitched another excellent 6 innings. The Whitesox were struggling in their pitching department and gave Us the best They could great effort for them. For the Stingrays that puts Us at 4&2 midway into the Season it was for Us A GOOD WIN.

Southern Yankees edged by tough pitching of Reds
by Southern Yankees (Senior Division)
The South Florida Reds edged the Southern Yankees 7-4 in a close battle and well piched game. The young 23 year old flamethrower from the Reds threw lots of heat for the first 5 frames. Then to make it even tougher on the shorthanded Yankees; the Reds brought in a 19 year lefty with one of the best curveballs in the league. The game was a tight well played battle throughout and the Southern Yankees had a big chance in the top of the ninth with runners on and Christian De la Rosa at the plate. He launched a missile into the gap but the outstanding Reds centerfielder dove and robbed the Yankee shortstop of an extra base hit. Dela rosa and Joe Darelli were stellar in the infield turning 3 excellent double plays along with first baseman Frank Crupi who was gold glove at first base with his scoops on the wet field. Franklin Brito pitched one of his best games ever and was brillant on the mound. Reidy Oliva clubbed a mammoth homerun into the trees in left center and was Thurman Munson like behind the plate filling in at the dish. Oliva led the Southern Yankees with two hits in a game where the lineup was stymied by excellent pitching from the young Reds flamethrowers. The Yankees had nine hits along with 9 strikeouts & just needed to put more hits together and the outcome would have been different. We played tough and look forward to a rematch down the road with all our players back. Hats off to the reds and manager Donny: you have a really good team and we wish you luck in the future. As far as the Southern Yankees are concerned we look to get back some of our missing pieces and know that we lost 3 close games that could have gone the other way if we had our full squad at the ballpark. Next game this Sunday 7/28 vs the Miami Brewers at Sunset Park again a 10 am game time. Stay thirsty my friends!
