Twins Topple Goliaths, 9-4

May 23, 2018 (Federal League Wire Service)

              The Davie Goliaths' five game winning streak came to an end on a picture perfect Wednesday night at Coral Glades as the Philistines fell, 9-4, to the Hallandale Twins.             
              Doc Guida started for the Fraternals and rewarded his team with six strong innings to garner the win. Guida limited the Goliaths to two runs on five hits to even his record at 1-1. Guida fanned three and walked one.
              Joe Adair earned a save with three innings of relief work.
              Jesse Wallace started for the G-Men and suffered his first loss of the campaign after being tagged for seven runs on eight hits in four and a third innings. Wallace walked four and struck out three. 
              The Twins built a 3-0 lead after two innings. In the first, Gio Texiera drew a leadoff walk and eventually scored when Esteban Reinoso grounded into a double play with the bases loaded. Ruben Aguilar singled in Brent Campbell to put the Twins ahead 2-0. 
              In the second, Ornan Toledo doubled, moved to third on a base hit by Jeremiah Schnapp, and scored when Jehiel Russo grounded out to second.           
              In the fifth, the Twins poured across four more runs, driving Wallace from the game in the process.            
              Campbell led off with a base hit and Russo followed with a seeing eye single to center. Reinoso walked to load the bases and Aguilar delivered Campbell with a sacrifice fly to center. Jeff "The Pin" Lynch doubled home two more runs, and Juan Mendez scored Lynch with a double of his own.
              The Goliaths dented the scoreboard in the bottom of the fifth. Paul "The Fork" Tunink drew a lead off walk and stopped at second when Nick Flesner singled. Both runners moved up when Anthony DeFilippis bunted, and Tunink scored when Jarrod Rubinstein grounded out.
              The teams traded runs in the sixth. Aguilar's sacrifice fly in the top of the inning put the Twins up, 8-1, and Luis Velandia's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the sixth made it an 8-2 ballgame.  
              A sacrifice fly off of the bat of Rubinstein cut the gap to 8-3 in the seventh, but an RBI single by Aguilar in the top of the eighth put the Twins in front, 9-3.
              An RBI single by Andres Gomez in the bottom of the eighth capped the scoring.
              Aguilar led the Twins with two hits and four RBI. Gomez had two hits for the Philistines. 
              Despite the loss, the Goliaths remain atop of the Expansion Division standings. The win was the second in a row for the Twins. 
              Tuesday's Highlights-Sunsets Slip Past Sentries; Stars Spank Mudcats: The Sunrise Sunsets watched a three run lead evaporate in the late innings, but recovered to defeat the Margate Sentries, 6-4, to maintain their Original Division lead.             
              Brant Spring started for the Twilighters and tossed seven strong innings. Spring allowed one run, scattering five hits, did not walk a batter, and struck out six. However, Tommy "The Vulture" Tritz permitted three runs in the top of the eighth and wound up as the winning pitcher when the 'Sets rallied in the bottom of the eighth. 
              Pete Ginter started for the Gatekeepers and was charged with two earned runs on seven hits in seven innings. Alex Rodriguez was responsible for both Sunset runs in the bottom of the eighth and took the loss.
              Tritz picked up his third win without a loss, while Rodriguez experienced his first loss of the campaign. 
              The 'Sets took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first on an RBI single by Anthony Garcilazo, but the Sentries tied the score in the second when Rob Wiley singled home Andres Acosta. 
              In the third, a Sentries error helped the Sunsets take a 3-1 lead. An RBI single by Garcilazo in the seventh scored Chris Craig as the 'Sets stretched their lead to 4-1.           
              In the top of the eighth, Wiley led off with a single and was forced at second by Tim Hopkins. Pinch hitter Dave Munguia drew a walk and Dan Heaton was hit by a pitch, loading the bases. Dave Marquez drove in all three runs with a double, tying the score.            
              In the home half of the eighth, Brandon Hull led off with a base hi off of Rodriguez and stole second. A pair of one out waljs loaded the bases and the Sentries summoned Raul Ascanio from the bullpen.
              Ascanio struck out the first batter he faced, but hit both Justin Dages and Chris Craig with pitches to force in two runs.
              Garcilazo led the Twilighters with three hits and two RBI. Marquez had three hits and three RBI for the Gatekeepers. 
              The Hollywood Stars snapped their losing skid with a 9-4 win over the Delray Beach Mudcats.
              Rafael Lara pitched seven innings, allowing two earned runs on seven hits, to earn his first win of the season.
              Amaury Archbold started for the 'Cats and suffered the loss. Archbold slid to 0-2 after yielding two earned runs on nine hits in five innings. 
              Osvaldo Capote paced the Stars with three hits. Raul Nieto drove in a pair of runs. Archbold's two hits led the Mudcats. Jamaal Thelwell homered for the 'Cats. 
              Despite the loss, the Stars remain stuck in the Expansion Division cellar.
