Game Summary
Great hitting helps FIU win against Boer. Updated Monday December 14, 2015 by David Weiss - FIU Club Baseball. Once again Juan Corrales started the game off with a base hit and the Panthers put 2 on the board in the first. Pitcher Alex Pousa started off slow allowing a walk and 2 base hits in the first. The defense did not help much either. We were fortunate to escape with only 2 runs scored by Boer. In the third, FIU was able to rally for 3 runs. David Weiss led off with a double to the left field fence, followed by a single by Mario Sanchez, and a 2 RBI single by Ubaldo Urrutia. Pousa cruised through the 4th inning, striking out 7 batters and only allowing 1 earned run. In relief, Roland Blandon struggled to find the strike zone and walked the first 3 batters he faced. However, his brother Enrique Blandon got out of the jam with no damage!!! Enrique was electric, pitching the final 3 innings and striking out 3 batters. Overall, this is the best the team has looked. There were still some mistakes, but we were ready to take on a strong Boer team and prevailed. That's what happens when preparation meets opportunity. Co-Players of the game: Alex Pousa (4 IP, 1 ER, 7 SO), Catcher Ubaldo Urrutia 2-3 (3 RBI, 1 R, BB) Notable Mention: David Weiss 2-4 (2B, 2 R, BB, SB)

Game Summary
Strong Pitching, Defense Leads to W in Season Opener. Updated Tuesday December 15, 2015 by Pablo Vinent - Los Dodgers. After 3 straight weeks of rainouts, Los Dodgers finally made their AUBL debut against the Miami Twins. On the mound for Los Dodgers was lefty Mauricio Rodriguez. Despite not having thrown a live pitch in years, Rodriguez didn't miss a beat as he went 7 strong innings, limiting the Twins to 1 run while spreading out 6 hits and recording 8 strikeouts. Leadoff batter Adrian Lorenzo seemed eager to get the season started as he recorded his first hit of the season on the game's first pitch. He quickly came around to score to give Mauricio Rodriguez an early lead. Offensively Los Dodgers were stagnant as they seem to be knocking off the rust and getting their timing back. In the 4th inning rightfielder Eric Cos worked his way on base with a 4-pitch walk, and scored on a pass ball after stealing both 2nd and 3rd bases. Pitcher Mauricio Rodriguez gave himself some insurance in the top of the 7th inning with double down the left field line that scored Nick Geary who reached on a hit-by-pitch. Antonio 'Toto' Collazo came on in relief of Rodriguez in the 8th inning and made quick work of the Twins batter striking out the side. After running into a bit of trouble in bottom of the 9th Collazo managed to pitch himself out of it to seal the win, and the save for himself

Game Summary
It was a beautiful night for baseball at Flamingo Park...finally!! After 3 weeks of rain outs and over a month of inactivity, The Diamondbacks were in mid season form. Diamondbacks Rafa Quintero started the scoring in the 2nd inning with a lead off triple to right field and was driven in by Fabian Hance's sac fly for an early 1-0 Diamondbacks lead. The Sox answered with a run in the 3rd for a 1-1 tie game through 3 innings.  Sox starter Ronny Arteaga pitched well through the 1st 4 innings, keeping The Diamondbacks hitters off balance and keeping the score tight at 2-1. The Diamondbacks would go on to score the next 7 runs on 6 hits over the next 3 innings to break the game open 9-1 in the 6th inning. It was the Sox lack of pitching depth that ultimately was the difference in this game. Diamondbacks Hans Waltemath pitched a great game 6 IP, 1 ER, 1 H, 5 K, 2 BB. Diamondbacks relievers Jamil Lopez, Brett Klasko and Amed Martinez also pitched well, each pitching 1 inning. The Diamondbacks featured a balanced attack on offense - 9 different players scored runs. Luis Exposito had 3 RBI's. The Diamondbacks look forward to playing The Florida Marlins next game in the featured broadcast game of the week, while The Sox face Boer Miami.

Game Summary
Room for Improvement. Updated Sunday December 13, 2015 by David Weiss - FIU Club Baseball. The Panthers came out of the gate strong! Juan Corrales led off with a single and the Panthers scored two runs in the first inning. Starting pitcher, Ariel Medina (4 IP) seemed to get off to a great start as well, keeping the Rockies scoreless for the first two innings. However, the offense became stagnant and the Rockies were suddenly up 3-2 after 3 innings. Stephen Rapaport tied the game at 3-3 with a clutch base hit to right field in the 4th. Andy Navarete (1.1 IP) came in to pitch in the 5th and showed great promise, striking out two in the inning. In the 6th, however, the Rockies had a 2 RBI Double which seemed like a turning point in the game. They were up 6-3 after 6 1/2, but the Panthers fought back and scored 4 in their part of the 6th to take a 7-6 lead. The Panthers showed no mercy and ended up winning 9-6 after 7 (due to time constraints). Jose Canosa earned the W, pitching 1.2 scoreless innings and striking out 2. The Rockies showed great discipline earning 13 Walks/HBPs in the game and scoring 6 runs. However, the Panthers only allowed 4 total hits throughout the game and the defense looked good. The Panthers also got their fair share of offense with 7 hits, 9 Walks/HBPs. Player of the Game: Roland Blandon 1-3, 2B, Walk, 2Runs, 2RBIs. It was not the prettiest game, but it was a win. We were missing some key players but everyone stepped it up BIG TYNE! Pitching will improve as the season continues.

Game Summary
Indians crushed by Biscayne Bats. Updated Tuesday December 15, 2015 by Justin Petrie - Dadeland Indians. On the Indians final Friday night game of the season, which coincided with work and holiday parties the Indians were forced to play extremely short handed. With several fill-ins and subs, the Indians were unable to provide the pitching and defense seen in their season opener, and were mercy-ruled by the Biscayne Bats. The Indians saw progress at the plate with lots of contact, and minimal strikeouts.

Game Summary
Indians Drop Season Opener - Updated Wednesday December 9, 2015 by Justin Petrie - Dadeland Indians. In a hard fought battle under the lights of Miami Beach's Flamingo Park, the Dadeland Indians dropped their season opener to the Cutler Bay Rockies, 6 to 2. In addition to being the first time playing together for a majority of the roster, several of the Indians players are just getting back into baseball, and some rust was to be expected. The Indians showed signs of promise for this season with some great defense and solid pitching. The rust was obvious at the plate, but hitting is expected to improve as the season progresses. Danny Montalvo recorded his first career AUBL hit as a single and then showed off his "catcher wheels" as he scored from first on an Alejandro Cuadra double to right center. Late in the game, pitcher Scott Lyon sliced a triple to the right field corner and ultimately scored on a passed ball. In the end, the Rockies experience won out as they were able to score 3 of their 6 runs in a single inning to break a 1-1 tie while stringing a handful of hits together. 
Cutler Bay Rockies win opener. Updated Friday November 27, 2015 by Bryan Garcia - Cutler Bay Rockies. Pitching took the upperhand this game as the Cutler Bay Rockies pitching staff combined for a total of 23 strikeouts and 2 earned runs (Desilets, Feierabend, Bolanos). Big hits by Anthony Perez and Carlos Bermudez.
