Red Sox sink with early deficit
by Miami Red Sox (Premier Division)

Despite facing a short-handed Hurricanes squad, the Miami Red Sox came out with a dud instead of a bang, gave up the early lead and wasted a late rally. Hence, the Sox go down for the second time in this young season.

 Defense and Pitching nets Tigers 3rd win…
by Davie Tigers (Senior Division)Davie Tigers go to 3-0 on the young season following a win over the Southern Yankees. Both teams were fortunate to get out on the field as the rain washed out all the other games on the SFBL schedule. The visiting Tigers would jump score two quick runs in the 1st, with Carlos Fernandez driving in yet another 1st inning run. In the bottom of the 1st, Ray would give up a double to Yankee vet and long time Tigers killer, Sam Bartoletti. But Ray would get coax two consecutive ground outs to leave Sam stranded at third. In the top of the 2nd, the Tigers would tack on another run led by two Tigers veterans, Sneider Melendez and Danny Stramwasser. Sneider, showing signs of life with the stick, would single and come in to score off of Danny’s 2 out double to right center. Yankees would score a run off of Ray in the 2nd, but that would prove to be their only run on the day, as Ray would go 5 strong innings to earn himself another win. Tigers would add more runs in the 3rd and 4th, getting doubles from Vince and Sneider, as well as an RBI hit from Chayanne. Defensively, the Tigers looked sharp, making only 1 error, and turning over 13 plays in the infield into outs. Also looking sharp would be Kevin Parsons. Kevin would relieve Ray on the mound in the 6th, and would allow only 1 hit to seal the win for the surging Tigers. It’s always a pleasure to play the Yankees. Ray, Jerry, Sam and the rest of the team epitomize class and sportsmanship, and it was always great to see longtime Yankees manager, Skip, who was out coaching 3rd for their team. Good luck to the Yankees the rest of the season, and to quote Ray Asmar, Stay Thirsty, my friends!’

Southern Yankees imitate Bad News Bears on field
by Southern Yankees (Senior Division)

Page SIX reported that the Southern Yankees infield went out together Saturday night to the movies. The Bad News Bears were playing on the big screen & the Yankees duplicated that performance Sunday morning with their infield play.8 count-em 8 errors! @ short & third base led to a multitude of extra at bats for the slugging Davie Tigers as they embarassed the Southern Yankees 11-1. Not the three aces you want unless you are playing 3 card poker with the houses chips. The Southern Yankees defense was as pourous as a paper towel trying to soak up a big gulp soda spill. Enough said- it was a game to reflect on and one of the worst performances the team has ever played. You know when you go to some restaurant or place and you know you are likely not to return? I have a saying for that and it is take a good look. Well I hope those of you who lost your form catching grounders in the infield or making throws to first base decide to take a good look and return to the athletic talents you were clearly missing for this contest. I am not trying to embarass anyone as you didnt hear Skip or myself screaming @ you when you came off the field. We are here to encourage & motivate you and make it a fun experience. I am SURE YOU WILL REBOUND THIS WEEK! But and there is always a but; there was a few bright spots. Franklin Brito once again pitched valiantly in defeat and slugged a booming double in power show of frustration. Sam Bartoletta also clubbed a long extra base hit along with Scott whitaker who also joined the triple double squad. Newcomer Eric Judd was a monster and threw out two Tigers by their tail at third base and on a play at home. He also came in to pitch a couple scoreless innings and has a bright future with the team. The Southern Yankees were missing many key players for this coNtest but unfortunately it was a game to forget& we didnt hit anyway. Hats off to Manager Dave CarnavAlle & his talented Tigers team. Ray Sinabria once again; as he has done over the years, been a Southern Yankees killer with his assortment of curves , slurves and knucklers. Last week we hit well against 90s heat & this week we could do nothing. The Southern Yankees look to regroup this week and get our all stars back and be more competitive. Rememnber its not about getting knocked down; its how high you bounce after that! The Davie Tigers play the game right as reflected by their manager and talented players. we preach the same here & hopefully our missing cast of players will finally make it to the ballpark & pick up their team. Good luck Tigers and we hope to see you again later in the season and give you a more competitive contest. The Southern Yankees will return to form this week @ 10 am on the same Lynn University field and play as they are capable of.STAY THIRSTY MY FRIENDS!

 Ray and Kevin help keep Tigers undefeated…
by Davie Tigers (Senior Division)

 Tigers improve to 4-0 on the season with a win over Deerfield White Sox. Again the visiting Tigers would strike early, scoring 4 runs in the 1st. Adam would walk to begin the rally, and ultimately score his 1st of 3 runs on the day. Long time Tigers vet Vince Gonzalez would get an RBI hit that inning as well. In the bottom half of the inning, Ray would give up a base hit, but Tigers 3B Mike Orris would start a well turned 5-4-3 double play to get out of the inning. In the 2nd, the Tigers would tack on 2 more runs as Cesar would get a base hit down the 3rd base line to start things up, and Jose would get a base hit to advance Andy, running for Cesar. Adam and Kevin would then come up with RBI’s that inning to stretch the lead to 6-0. In the bottom half of the 2nd, the White Sox would threaten, getting a base hit to lead off the inning against Ray. But Ray would get out of the jam, getting a grounder to force the runner at 2nd. Then with a man on 1st, a liner to right appeared to be heading over RF Carlos Fernandez’ head. But the oh so athletic Carlos would snag the liner and quickly throw offline to 1st attempting to double the runner up. Big Chayanne Hernandez would make a nice play to grab the throw, diving back to tag the bag in time to double up the runner. Tigers continue to play some solid defense, which has been a major factor in their early season success. In the 5th, Tigers would add 3 more, as Coach Carnevale would lead off with a walk, Jose would single to center, and Adam would crush one to deep right for a 2 RBI Triple. Adam would later score on a wild pitch. Adam, a former Tigers team MVP, has had a slow start with the bat, but has found ways to contribute by getting on base and playing solid defense. Speaking of defense, in the bottom of the 5th, the White Sox would again threaten, getting 3 consecutive hits off of Ray. But Ray would get out of a jam, aided by another great play in the outfield, this time by LF Sal Rodriguez. Sal would snare a hard liner that appeared to be headed over his head for an extra base hit. Tigers would add more runs in the 6th and 7th innings, with Marcel and Big C getting RBI hits in the 6th, and Vince notching 2 RBI’s in the 7th with another hit. Kevin Parsons would take over on the hill for Ray, and was lights out, going 2 innings, allowing only 1 hit and striking out 4. Tigers are playing some great baseball and look forward to keeping it going after the bye and All Star break.

WhiteSox can’t string hits against Sanabria
by Deerfield White Sox (Senior Division)

 The same White Sox team that showed up defensively out of the gate on the first game of the season showed up again on the second game. The defensive miscues allowed 4 unearned runs on the first inning which in all reality would be all the offense the Tigers would need as the crafty Old timer Sanabria would wiggle out of jams time after time, either on his own or by some stellar defense behind him, specially on the outfield corners. White Sox are hoping to get their entire team out all together sometime before the next century comes around, Juan Vene has pitched his guts out with no real help from his defense and or the offense as was the case this Sunday. Good game Tigers, we hope to put up a better fight our next time out between the lines.

by Perrine Monarchs (Senior Division)

 It was a close game from the start as both teams fought to keep the lead. The Monarchs offense was led by a 4-4 performance from Chaz Lemoine and good pitching from Sean Dyer. Randy White and Andy Glenn also scored 2 runs each to help preserve the win. Good game from the D-Backs as we look forward to playing them again.

 D-Backs leave tying run at 2nd base
by Dade Diamondbacks (Senior Division)

 It was a sunny day at South Miami High School. The Monarchs scored 2 runs in the 1st, but the D-Backs answered with 3 of their own, highlighted by Andy Celaya’s double for a 3-2 lead after 1 inning. Both teams added a run in the 2nd. The Monarchs scored 3 runs in the 3rd, followed by 2 runs for The D-Backs for a 6-6 tie after 3 innings. Chaz Lemoine’s long 2 run homerun to center field put The Monarchs up 8-6 after 4 innings. The D-Backs got 1 back in the 5th to close the gap to 8-7. The Monarchs added a run in the 6th and 1 in the 7th for a 10-7 lead. The D-Backs rallied in the 7th (and final) inning to plate 2 runs on hits from Ivan Asencion and Andy Celaya, but the tying run remained stranded at 2nd base for a 10-9 final score. Andy Celaya was 4-4, 2B, BB, 2 RS, 2 RBI. Ivan Asencion was 2-4, BB, Run, 2 RBI. 6 other players chipped in hits. It was an evenly played game, as both teams had 12 hits.

 Monstruos finally play Monstruo baseball!
by Monster Mini Golf Monstruos (Senior Division)

 After a very sluggish start to the season by the Monster Mini Golf Monstruos, as many of there past games we’re played with lack of heart and want. They turn it around and play for the first time, with the sense that they actually want too be there. Even though only 10 of the 18 MMGM players showed up at the game, they we’re that 10 that wanted too be there, and that’s why they won todays game against a great team the South Florida Reds. From the first pitch it was evident the Monstruos were ready for the Reds. With great defense, good hitting even better base running, and not to mention tremendous pitching the Monstruos cruised to a 10-3 W. The Monster mini Golf Monstruos we’re Carried Defensively by Brian De La Nuez and Mateo O’Campo. Ofensively by Edward Miller and Brian De La Nuez combining for 4 Hits, 4 Steals, and 4 Runs Scored. The pitching by the Monstruos was great the whole game, but the last 4 innings were ABSOLUTLY DOMINATED by Gaby Manduley and Brian De La Nuez combining for 10 K’s in the last 4 innings with 0 Earned Runs. Player of the Game by Far was Brian De La Nuez known by his teammates as the next Koji Uehara.

 The Rangers made many errors on sunday but showed that they are strong enough to win even with many miscues. The team hit well and Albert Gonzalez pitched a good game against a tough Yankee lineup. Thanks to the Yankees for great game, you guys played well.
