Sunsets Top Twins; Sentries Spank Stars

April 24, 2018 (Federal League Wire Service)

              The 2018 Spring/Summer season opened with a lightning delay and end with a few fireworks as the defending league champion Sunrise Sunsets and the Margate Sentries clubbed their way to opening day victories.            
              The Sunsets overcame deficits of 7-4 and 11-10 to defeat the Hallandale Twins, 13-11.  
              Chris Price and reigning MVP Anthony Garcilazo led the Twilighters with three hits each. Price drove in two runs, Garcilazo knocked in three.
              Nick Arata, rejoining the 'Sets after a three season absence, hit the season's first home run, a solo shot leading off the bottom of the second that gave the Twilighters a 4-3 lead. 
              The Twins led 7-4 in the fifth, thanks to run producing hits by newcomers Sheng Tzu Pang and Ruben Aguilar, but the Sunsets responded with six runs in the home half of the fifth to take a 10-7 advantage. Jimmy Schariest, Justin Dages, Price, Garcilazo, and Chris Craig had consecutive hits in the frame.
              RBI singles by Clyde Yeh, Tzu Pang, and an RBI double by Sergio Perez helped the Twins to take an 11-10 lead in the sixth. Once again, the 'Sets responded. This time, the defending champs pushed across three runs, aided by Garcilazo's two run double, to take the lead for good.           
              Tommy Tritz pitched two innings in relief of starter Brant Spring, allowing one run on two hits, and earned the win. Joe "Truth" Adair permitted three runs on three hits in two innings and took the loss.
              Tzu Pang and Rafael Laureano led the Twins with three hits a piece in a losing effort.             
              The Margate Sentries broke open a close contest with a nine run outburst in the bottom of the sixth and cruised to an 11-5 win over the Hollywood Stars.  
              Raul Ascanio, who was drafted by the Stars but demanded a trade before the start of the season, got the opening day assignment for the Gatekeepers and picked up the win. Ascanio yielded three runs on six hits in six innings, walking one and striking out 10.            
              Rafael Lara started for the Stars and limited the Sentries to one earned run on five hits in five innings. Yoel de la Cruz surrendered eight earned runs on eight hits in two thirds of an inning and suffered the loss.  
              Rookie centerfielder Giornic Sille and veteran Dan Heaton led the Sentries with three hits each. An RBI single by Andres Acosta in the sixth tied the score at 3-3, and, later in the inning, Jorge Michelina's two run single put the Munguiamen ahead to stay.
              Ishy Demoya had two hits for the Stars and gave his team a brief 3-2 lead in the top of the sixth with an RBI single. 
              The road does not get an easier for the Stars as they play the Expansion Division pennant winning Tri-Cities Tritons next.
