Tritons Crush Cubs, Clinch Flag

September 17, 2017 (Federal League Wire Service)

              The Tri-Cities Tritons captured their second Expansion Division regular season pennant in the last three seasons as they defeated the Broward Cubs, 13-1 in the season's penultimate game.
              Playing a rare Sunday game, a move necessitated by the after effects of Hurricane Irma, the Tritons rallied from an early deficit.
              Relief ace Calvin Rayburn made his second start of the season for the Water Dwellers. Rayburn was opposed by the Cubs' Burke Fox.
              The Cubs grabbed an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first as Joseph Paniagua lined a two out single, advanced to third on a double by Jamie Bobrow, and scored on a wild pitch.
              In the bottom of the second, the Sons of Poseidon tied the scored when Adrian Roznowski drew a lead off walk, stole second, moved to third on a wild pitch, and scored on an RBI ground out off the bat of Agner Martinez.
              In the third, the Tritons opened up a 5-1 lead as Julian Faria had an RBI single and Rayburn blasted a three run home run on an 0-2 pitch. 
              The onslaught continued in the fourth as Chris Marrero delivered a two run single, Faria had a two run triple, and Roznowski produced a run scoring single as the Tritons took a commanding 10-1 lead.
              In the sixth, the Water Dwellers capped the scoring, adding three runs to their advantage. Roznowski and John Hardardt had RBI hits in the frame.
              Faria led the Tritons with three hits and three RBI. Marrero. Roznowski, Hardardt, Rayburn, and Zac Miller all had two hit games for the Tritons. Miller, by going two for three, all but clinched the league's batting title.
              Rayburn, in addition to his home run prowess, pitched five innings, allowing one run on two hits, to earn his first win of the campaign. Rayburn, who did not issue a walk, struck out 10.
              Fox fell to 1-4 as he was charged with nine runs on seven hits in three and two thirds innings. Fox walked four, hit a batter, and fanned one.
              The Tritons, who finished the season with a three game winning streak, will await the winner of next week's play-in round between the Hollywood Stars and Davie Goliaths.
              The Cubs, who lost four of their last eight, will meet the Delray Beach Mudcats in the Original Division play-in round.
