It was a beautiful day at Fort Lauderdale Stadium for baseball. Both team's pitchers turned in great performances. Dade Diamondbacks starter Mike Casanova was brilliant - 6 IP, 0 ER, 5 Hits, 12 K, 0 BB. Reliever Mario Figueredo was equally effective - 3 IP, 0 ER, 0 Hits, 3 K, 2 BB. However, The Diamondbacks struggled to support their pitching staff. Diamondbacks catchers committed repeated passed balls on strikeouts and could not throw out any stealing base runners, leading to all 7 unearned runs. For The Sox, player of the week Albert Garcia threw 7 scoreless innings - 7 IP, 0 ER, 5 Hits, 6 K's, 1 BB. Sox reliever Christopher Contreras also pitched well - 2 IP, 0 ER. Larry Hernandez had 2 hits for The Diamondbacks. Speedy Medina scored 2 runs for The Sox.

After 2 disappointing games, the Mariners were finally able to record their first win of the season with a blowout against the Rockies. The Mariners were dominant in both offense and defense from the get go. On the mound was Adam who continued his hot start going 3 innings, allowing 1 hit and striking out 7. Next making his long awaited season debut on the mound was Nick Alfonso. He too would go 3 innings striking out 5 batters and allowing only 1 run for the victory. Devon would close out the game and even though he ran into some problems with control issues he would fight through it and finish the inning with a strikeout and some good defense behind him. Offensively, the Mariners bats finally woke up banging out 16 hits! They were led by Ulrichel Pena who was a homerun away from the cycle while collecting 5 RBI's. Bino Garcia making his Mariners debut would also have a big game collecting 3 hits. Multi hit games were also added by George Sauma, Maikel Reyes & Isaac Seoane. Collecting big hits were Nick Silva who continues his hot start with a long double, Juan Quesada with a bomb for a triple, Rodnel Bello with a huge double and Andres Vengochea with a screamer down the line. Each Mariner starter had at least one hit in the game.

With Game 1 of the 2014 Fall Season, the team better known as the Doral Dbacks part ways with a successfully created reputation. However, results prove that the vision is very much still alive. The defending AUBL Miami Champions find a new identity as the West Kendall Nationals, the Nationals welcome to the Championship squad new additions of Marcus Salmon, Chris Wilmoth, and Gilbert Garcia. With the addition of these three new superstars, the Nationals seek to continue their legacy and fulfill a second championship and they would begin with a matchup against the Miami Gardens Sea Dogs.  The Nationals offense would jump to a very usual start by the hands of Yerandy Martinez, who led off the game with a standup Double, Yusbell Ortega would draw the first of his 2 walks for the game, a pass ball would score Martinez and Ortega would move to 3rd after a Stolen Base. Bringing up Anthony Boza, a deep Sac fly would give the Nationals the early 2-0 lead. Frank Lorenzo, would start the new campaign for the nationals going three innings with 2 Earned Runs allowed before leaving the game with a minor hand injury. Top of the 3rd, Ortega would walk again and shortly after scoring from 1st off a powering Stand up Double from Boza, making it 3-1. Sea Dogs would tie in the bottom half, giving the 3-3 tie. Martinez would take the mound, going 3 innings with 1 run scored and 2 K's. Top of the 5th inning, Rudy would single his way on. Followed by a walk from Angel Rodriguez, Martinez would ground to the Shortstop and off a bad throw both Alvarez and Rodriguez. Nationals would lead into the 7th with a 7-4 lead and add cushion as Alvarez and Angel Rodriguez would get on once again with back to back hits, bringing Ruben Paredes with a 2 Run Double bringing the score to 8-4, Martinez would Triple his way on and score Paredes.
