Goliaths' Rally Ruins Mudcats; Sentries Stampede Twins

July 18, 2017 (Federal League Wire Service)

              The Davie Goliaths assembled an improbable five run rally in the bottom of the ninth and walked off with a 13-12 win over the Delray Beach Mudcats. 
              A two run single by Sean Grove with two out in the final frame scored Jehiel Russo with the tying run and pinch runner Frank Brown with the winning run.
              Paul "The Fork" Tunink pitched an inning and two thirds of spotless relief for the Philistines and picked up his first win of the campaign. Neal Kenney surrendered four runs, three earned, on one hit and two walks in a third of an inning and suffered the loss. 
              Cory McEwen started for the 'Cats, and Seth Natal started for the G-Men. Neither pitcher factored in the decision. McEwen allowed four earned runs on eight hits in five innings. Natal faced only four batters, giving up three runs on three hits and a walk, before exiting with shoulder tightness.
              The 'Cats built a 12-7 advantage in the top of the fifth on the strength of two hits each by Alejandro Caboverde, Jamal Thelwell, and Chris Jones, but the Goliaths picked up a run in the bottom of the fifth when Jorge Caballero drew a bases loaded walk.
              In the ninth, still clinging to a four un lead, the Whiskered Fish sent Kenney to the hill to get the final three outs. However, Ciros Burdier got a one out single, Tunink reached on an error, and Kyle Noel drew a walk to load the bases. When Russo worked out a walk to force in a run, Kenney was lifted in favor of Pete Maestrales.
              After retiring Jarrod Rubinstein on a pop up for the second out, Maestrales walked Anthony DeFilippis to cut the deficit to two runs. Brown was sent in to pinch run for DeFilippis, and Jorge Caballero followed with a single to left that scored Noel to bring the Philistines to within a run. Grove then lined a 2-1 fastball to center that enabled Russo and Brown to score.
              After the game, the G-Men announced that catcher, and Best Newcomer Award candidate, Kyle Noel would miss the rest of the season, and, likely, all of next season with a torn ligament in his right hand. 
              The win snapped the Goliaths' four game losing skid. The Mudcats have now lost three of the last five.
              In a game that may still impact the playoff race, the Margate Sentries walloped the Hallandale Twins, 12-3.
              Cody Stauble improved to 2-3 this season after tossing six effective innings. Stauble permitted three run on eight hits, walked three and struck out six. David Marquez pitched three scoreless frames of relief and earned a save. 
              Stauble and Marquez, in addition to their pitching contributions, were also the Gatekeepers' hitting stars. Stauble had three hits and an RBI, and Marquez hit a pair of home runs, a two run shot in the sixth, and a solo blast in the eighth.
              Alex Rodriguez, who decided not to have season ending elbow surgery, went four for four while dh'ing. Ivan Garcia and Tim Hopkins added two hits and two RBI each for the Munguiamen.
              Joe Adair started for the Twins and absorbed the loss after allowing three earned runs on seven hits in three innings.
              Javier Oliveros led the Twins with three hits and an RBI. 
              The Twins, who have lost 10 in a row, had 12 hits, but left 12 runners on base, including leaving the bases loaded in consecutive innings.
              The Sentries, who snapped a three game losing streak, signed 26 year old catcher Oswaldo Pirela to take the place of recently retired backstop Phil Laufman. Pirela went 0-4 in his debut on Tuesday night.
