|Tigers improve to 4-0 on the season with a win over Deerfield White Sox. Again the visiting Tigers would strike early, scoring 4 runs in the 1st. Adam would walk to begin the rally, and ultimately score his 1st of 3 runs on the day. Long time Tigers vet Vince Gonzalez would get an RBI hit that inning as well. In the bottom half of the inning, Ray would give up a base hit, but Tigers 3B Mike Orris would start a well turned 5-4-3 double play to get out of the inning. In the 2nd, the Tigers would tack on 2 more runs as Cesar would get a base hit down the 3rd base line to start things up, and Jose would get a base hit to advance Andy, running for Cesar. Adam and Kevin would then come up with RBI's that inning to stretch the lead to 6-0. In the bottom half of the 2nd, the White Sox would threaten, getting a base hit to lead off the inning against Ray. But Ray would get out of the jam, getting a grounder to force the runner at 2nd. Then with a man on 1st, a liner to right appeared to be heading over RF Carlos Fernandez' head. But the oh so athletic Carlos would snag the liner and quickly throw offline to 1st attempting to double the runner up. Big Chayanne Hernandez would make a nice play to grab the throw, diving back to tag the bag in time to double up the runner. Tigers continue to play some solid defense, which has been a major factor in their early season success. In the 5th, Tigers would add 3 more, as Coach Carnevale would lead off with a walk, Jose would single to center, and Adam would crush one to deep right for a 2 RBI Triple. Adam would later score on a wild pitch. Adam, a former Tigers team MVP, has had a slow start with the bat, but has found ways to contribute by getting on base and playing solid defense. Speaking of defense, in the bottom of the 5th, the White Sox would again threaten, getting 3 consecutive hits off of Ray. But Ray would get out of a jam, aided by another great play in the outfield, this time by LF Sal Rodriguez. Sal would snare a hard liner that appeared to be headed over his head for an extra base hit. Tigers would add more runs in the 6th and 7th innings, with Marcel and Big C getting RBI hits in the 6th, and Vince notching 2 RBI's in the 7th with another hit. Kevin Parsons would take over on the hill for Ray, and was lights out, going 2 innings, allowing only 1 hit and striking out 4. Tigers are playing some great baseball and look forward to keeping it going after the bye and All Star break.
