Stars Stone Goliaths

May 22, 2019 (Federal League Wire Service)

              The Hollywood Stars snapped a three game losing skid and moved back into a second place tie in the Expansion Division as they rallied, and then held on, for an 11-10 win over the cellar dwelling Davie Goliaths. 
              A two run double by Matt Rodriguez sandwiched between a pair of Goliath errors helped the Stars to reverse a 10-7 deficit in the top of the ninth. Stars' reliever Brandon Von Achen then loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth on three walks before escaping with a white knuckle save.
              The Stars built a 7-2 lead in the fifth, but the Philistines tied the score with five runs in the bottom of the fifth. Brett Smith's RBI single and a two run double by Andres Gomez were the key hits in the frame.
              In the sixth, during a steady rain, the G-Men took a 10-7 lead. Smith and Gomez delivered RBI singles after the go ahead run scored on a wild throw.
              Carlos Ariza, the Stars' third pitcher of the night got credit for his second win of the season. Von Achen earned his first save of the campaign. Richie Perez, whose own throwing error opened the door to the Stars' ninth inning rally, permitted one earned run on one hit in two innings and was saddled with the loss. 
              Erickmay Simancas, Dio Castillo, and Teo Zorrilla led a 17 hit assault by the Stars with three hits each.  Gomez went four for four with four RBI for the Goliaths. 
              In the bottom of the ninth, Anthony DeFilippis drew a leadoff walk, but was erased at second when Paul "Truly" Nolan ground into a force play. Anthony Aleixo and Perez followed by coaxing free passes from Von Achen to load the bases. However, the lean lefty fanned Nick Hernandez for the second out and then ended the game by inducing A.J. Aleixo to line out to right for the third out.
              The loss was the fifth in a row for the Philistines.
              Tuesday's Highlights-Atlantics Stun Sunsets; Cubs Crush Twins: The Fort Lauderdale Atlantics moved into first place in the Original Division as they staged a four run rally in the bottom of the ninth to outlast the Sunrise Sunsets, 12-11. 
              Jarrod Rubinstein's one out single to right off of reliever Johnny Cole scored Willie Castillo with the winning run after Gary Frady's single off of Cole sent Jose Ayala home with the tying run. 
              Aquiles Torrealba pitched two innings of relief and picked up his first career win. Torrealba yielded two runs in relief of starter Joe Feller. Brant Spring was tagged with the loss and fell to 1-1.
              Castillo led the Oceaneers with four hits. Frady had three hits, and Ayala contributed two. Torrealba also homered for the 'Tics.
              Cole had three hits for the Twilighters and drove in six runs. Elijah Rodriguez hit a two run home run in the fifth, and Jimmy Schariest solo home run in the sixth for the 'Sets. 
              After the Twilighters tacked on two insurance runs in the top of the ninth off of Torrealba on a sacrifice fly by Chris Price and an RBI single by Anthony Garcilazo, the Atlantics got RBI singles by Ayala, Castillo, and Frady before Rubinstein connected for the game winner. 
              The Atlantics have won two in a row, while the Sunsets have lost two of their last three. 
              As the Atlantics ascended to first place, and the Sunsets slid into second, the Broward Cubs romped to a 13-5 win over the Hallandale Twins and moved into third place. The Fraternals fell from second place into fourth as a result of the loss.
              The Cubs combined for 18 hits and swatted four home runs. Donny Gagliano hit a two run shot off of Twins' starter Doc Guida in the third. Reol Alvarez led off with a round tripper in the fourth, and Cory McEwen hit a pair of homers off of reliever Obrayan Martinez. McEwen poled a solo shot in the sixth and connected for a grand slam in the seventh.
              Chad Volbert pitched a complete game for the Cubbies, permitting four earned runs on 14 hits, to earn his first win of the campaign. Guida allowed four earned runs on 10 hits in five inning and suffered the loss and fell to 1-1. 
              The Cubs expedited matters by roaring out to a 4-0 lead in the fourth and then proved that they were not facetious in their aspirations as they added on two runs in the fifth, two more in the sixth, and five in the seventh.  
              McEwen and Cheris Thompson pace the Cubs with three hits each. Gagliano and Mickey Tanyi added two hits a piece. Francisco Calderon had three hits for the Fraternals. 
              The Cubs have won two straight, while the Twins have dropped three of four.
              The Twins added free agent outfielder Adrian Roznowski to their roster. The former Triton outfielder went 1-4 in his Twins' debut.
              Monday's Recap-Tritons Grind Goliaths: The Tri-Cities Tritons notched their fourth straight win, and the Davie Goliaths suffered their fourth consecutive loss, as the Water Dwellers whitewashed the Philistines, 10-0, on a perfect night at Coral Glades. 
              Jose Marcano tossed a three hit shutout for the Sons of Poseidon. Marcano walked one, hit one, and struck out 16, to improve to 2-0. 
              Alvaro Gomez started for the G-Men, but strained his groin in the second inning, ending, what would have been, a classic pitcher's duel. Gomez displayed his warrior mentality by remaining in the game, despite not being able to rely on his velocity. Instead, Gomez kept the Tritons off balance with an assortment of breaking pitches and arm angles. Gomez was charged with three earned runs on eight hits in seven innings of courageous work.
              The Tritons opened the scoring in the bottom of the fourth. With two out, Calvin Rayburn drew a walk and then scored on a double by Armando Cupeiro. Jayven Miller followed with a single through the right side, scoring Cupeiro and putting the Water Dwellers ahead, 2-0.
              As Marcano was mowing down the Goliath batters, the Tritons maintained their two run advantage before breaking through for seven runs in the seventh. 
              The rally began as Mike Whittaker reached on catcher's interference. Agner Martinez walked, and Jay Warman's one out single loaded the bases. Zac Miller drew a bases loaded walk to score Whittaker. Rayburn doubled in two runs and then Cupeiro singled in two more. Finally, Marcano hit a ball off the right field fence that, at first, appeared to be a home run. However the ball remained in the park and wound up as a two run single. 
              Zac Miller coaxed a bases loaded walk from reliever Jose Zambrano in the eighth to cap the scoring. 
              Cupeiro had two hits and three RBI for the Tritons. Marcano had two hits of his own and drove in two runs.
              The Tritons' win enabled them to establish a four game lead over the idle Margate Sentries in the Expansion Division race.
