Boca Red Sox vs Coral Gables A's

Miami Christian School
200 Northwest 109 Avenue
Miami, FL 33172

Boca Red Sox (8-4-0)
#2 seed National League

The Boca Red Sox beat Team Puerto Rico in a walk off thriller 8-7 last weekend after routing The North Miami Orioles 8-1 in round 1.

The Boca Red Sox feature a balanced attack, with 10 players hitting over .300 this season. Endy Acevedo is tied for the league lead in HR's with 3. Manager Eric Lyon has worked hard this season to keep his roster consistent, facing 2 double headers late in the season. Pitchers Chris Snevel and Brian Neal have shouldered most of the load, combining for 63 innings and 73 K's. The Red Sox are experienced and will be tough to beat, coming in as the #2 seed.

Coral Gables A's (10-2-0)
#1 seed National League

The Coral Gables A's narrowly escaped with a 9-8 victory over Public Safety Blue last weekend and a 1-0 victory in 12 innings over The south Broward Mets in round 1.

The Coral Gables A's are the reigning champs. The A's are well respected nationwide as one of the top tournament teams in the country. This team is built with pitching, defense and timely hitting. Alex Arteaga and Willy Mizrahi are 2 of the top pitchers in the league as a 1-2 punch. Sheehan Planas-Arteaga leads the team in hitting (.600 AVG, 2 HR, 11 RBI). The A's also added former league MVP, former homerun champion and 3 time league champion Yerandy Martinez this season. It will be difficult to unseat the A's as champs.

Boer Miami vs South Dade Toyota Braves

Coral Park High School
8865 Southwest 16th Street
Miami, FL 33165

Boer Miami (7-4-1)
#3 seed American League

Boer Miami has been a perennial power in AUBL Miami for several seasons. Having been league runner-up twice, Manager Silvio Silva Jr hopes this will be their 1st championship season. Boer Miami always boasts one of the top pitching staffs in the league. Several former Boer players are currently playing professionally. Guillermo Moscoso and Horatio Acosta pitched for Colombia in the World Baseball Classic. MVP candidate Yuniel Cabrera has been dominant (.639 AVG, 3 HR, 16 RBI).

Boer Miami has been one of the hottest teams in league, after a very slow start. After defeating Miami New Realty 10-6 and The West Kendall Nationals 6-4, Boer Miami looks to return to the AUBL Miami finals for the 3rd time in the last 4 seasons.

South Dade Toyota Braves (11-0-1)
#1 seed American League

The South Dade Toyota Braves have always been a top team in AUBL Miami, but this season has been their finest to date. Marco Pereira and Franklin Gonzalez lead the team offensively with very impressive numbers (Pereira .656 AVG, 1 HR, 17 RBI, Gonzalez .645 AVG, 19 RBI). 7 players are hitting over .400. The Braves have earned their #1 seed this season with top pitching and devastating hitting.

The South Dade Toyota Braves have never been to the AUBL Miami Championship Series, but are poised to give Boer Miami a great game this weekend. the Braves went undefeated this season and have a very deep roster. The braves defeated former champions Dade Diamondbacks with an impressive 7-1 performance after defeating The Dade Vipers 1-0 in round 1.
