Game summary
by Miguel Garcia - Coral Gables A's
Led by a first inning 2 run HR from Luis Cabral and a complete game masterpiece from Alex Arteaga, the A's started the season with a 6-1 win over the Sox on Sunday.  The A's put up 3 runs in the top of the 1st inning and this would prove to be more than enough for Arteaga who was dominant on Sunday striking out 16 en route to a complete game win as he gave up only 1 run on 6 hits. Offensively, the A's combined for 9 hits and 7 walks.   Pee Wee Rodriguez and Juan Quesada led the way as both players went 2-2 and reached base safely 3 times apiece.  Carlos Alvarez singled in the 6th and quickly stole 2nd and 3rd and scored on an errant throw to 3rd.  Albert Jardines doubled in the 3rd.  Chicho Vengoechea and Yasmany Thondike added hits.  All in all, a good start to the season for the A's.
