settled as the Broward Cubs hammered the Fort Lauderdale
Eddie Cabrera collected three hits, drove in two runs, stole home,
and earned a save, tossing two and two thirds scoreless innings.
Pete Maestrales also had three hits for the Bruins and Jamaal

The Tri-Cities Tritons held on for a wild 14-12 win over the pesky
Davie Goliaths and the victory allowed the Water Dwellers to
leapfrog the Philistines in the Expansion Division standings.
A five run first inning, aided by consecutive RBI singles by Elio
Licea and James McDonnell, gave the G-Men an early lead, but, the
Tritons scored four in the third and then added five runs in the
fifth and five more in the sixth.
Jordy Oriach, Mike LaManna, Chad Allen, and Gerardo Castellanos
had two hits a piece for the Sons of Poseidon. Castellanos hit a
two run home run in the third. Zac Miller's two run double
highlighted the rally in the fourth, and consecutive two run
singles by Ryan Maldonado and Jordy Oriach keyed the fifth.

brought the potential go ahead run to the plate, but Marco
Llamozas bid for hero status wound up in Miller's glove in center
field for the game's final out.
Chris Archer yielded five earned runs on six hits in six and a
third innings and captured his first win of the season. Matt
Chikerotis started for the Philistines, but only last two and a
third innings. Pete Ginter permitted five runs on four hits and
three walks in an inning and a third and suffered his third loss
of the campaign.

fourth. Goliaths' manager Don Gagliano was ejected for arguing

10-0 in the next two innings.

three of their last four contests.
