The Miami Gardens Sea Dogs threatened early with a lead off single and a walk. With runners on first and second and no outs, starting pitcher Albert Gonzalez was able to strike out the next batter and then bailed himself out with 1-4-3 double play. The Tigers had an opportunity to score in the bottom of the 1st after a walk and an error put runners on 1st and 3rd. With 2 outs, Sea Dogs pitcher Joe Feller struck out the next batter to end the threat. After a scoreless 2nd inning, Tigers Ryan Paylor led off the bottom half of the 3rd with a double to left center – one of his three hits on the day. Paylor would eventually score when Rafa Quintero would hit a two out single to left. The contest would remain 1-0 until the bottom of the 5th. The Tigers opened up the inning with three consecutive singles by Jorge Castellanos, Ryan Paylor, and Bobby Angulo. With bases loaded and no outs, Feller got the next batter to pop up to second but next batter Rafa Quintero would hit a towering shot off the center field fence for a base clearing triple to make it 4-0. The Tigers would add one more in the inning when 3rd baseman Garvi Arias would single in Quintero. In the top of the 6th the Sea Dogs would load the bases with back to back singles and a walk but Pitcher Albert Gonzalez and 1st Baseman Fernando Urtiaga were able to orchestrate a pick off at first to get out the inning and end the threat. That would be it for Tigers pitcher Albert Gonzalez who finished the day with 6 IP, 9K’s, 3H, 3BB, & 0 R allowed. The bottom of the 6th had Castellanos and Paylor duplicating the back-to-back singles from last inning, bringing up Bobby Angulo who would double deep to left to score Castellanos. Next batter Rene Orovio would hit a 2 RBI single to make the contest 8-0. Next batter Quintero would get on by a FC, then Garvi Arias would bring him home for his 2nd RBI of the day making the score 10-0. Ryan Paylor would take the mound in the 7th inning with a chance to end it. Paylor would go on to strike out 3 of the 4 batters he faced to secure the save and give the Tigers the win. The Tigers will now face the Dade Diamondbacks on Sunday Dec 21st, at Archbishop Coleman Carroll in what promises to be a great match up.

It was a perfect day for baseball at The Homestead Sports Complex. Diamondbacks Eric Rios scored a run in the 1st on Ivan Asencion's sac fly after a hit and a stolen base for a Diamondbacks 1-0 lead after 1 inning. After a scoreless 2nd inning, The Diamondbacks scored 3 runs in the 3rd inning, highlighted by a strange fielder's interference call when The Rockies shortstop threw his glove at a ball hit by Mike Casanova. An RBI double by Larry Hernandez in the 4th inning increased the Diamondbacks lead to 5-0. Coral Gables Rockies starting pitcher David Palma pitched well, giving up only 2 earned runs in 4 innings, but was relieved by Alex Lugones in the 5th inning. The Diamondbacks amassed 8 runs in the 5th inning, highlighted by a RARE inside the park grand slam by player of the week Mike Casanova (click here to watch video of the grand slam -  Grand Slam video). Mike Casanova also pitched great! He did not allow his 1st hit until the 4th inning. Diamondbacks Eric Rios and Fabian Hance each pitched well in relief, giving up 0 runs and striking out 3 in 2 innings. Rockies closer Angel Garcia pitched well in relief (2 IP, 5 K's), but the game was already decided, as The Diamondbacks would win 14-0. All 10 Diamondbacks players recorded hits. Diamondbacks Mike Casanova's stats were very impressive. Pitching - 5 IP, 0 ER, 2 hits, 8 K's, 0 BB. Offensively, Mike was 2-4, Grand Slam HR, 5 RBI's, 2 Runs scored.

This past Sunday the Mariners took on undefeated Team Venezuela at Alex Fernandez Park in hopes of giving the their first loss of the season and climb up to .500. The game would start off great, with the Mariners bats clutch hitting while taking advantage of Venezuela's early erratic pitching to score 5 runs in the 1st inning. For the Mariners, starting pitcher Adam Samuels would have some control issues throughout his 3 innings in the game but would be to fight through it. It didn't help him much either that the Mariners committed a couple of errors behind him. After the first inning the Mariners would only be able to add 2 more runs as Team Venezuela pitcher Andres Ibarz was able to shut them down the rest of the game. Mariner relief pitching would be strong enough to win the game however the plague of errors continued throughout the game causing 5 unearned runs throughout the game. Bottom line no errors = a Mariners victory, but that wasn't the case. Offensively, the Mariners were led by Andres Vengochea going 2-3 with a double and 2 RBI's. Maikel Reyes would also add 2 hits in the game as well as 3 stolen bases. Nick Silva continued his hitting streak with a line drive base hit. Base hits were also added by, Isaac Seoane and Juan Quesada. Hats off to Team Venezuela for an exciting game played with a playoff atmosphere. The Mariners look to avenge their first loss of the season this Sunday against a good South Florida Sox team.
