A's Win 9th SFBL Championship
by Coral Gables Athletics (Premier Division)

Sunday saw two great games between the A's and the Miami D'backs as both teams looked for to take home the Premier Division Championship. In Game 1 of the Best of 3 Series, the A's jumped out early to take a 6-1 lead as they took advantage of some wildness from the D'backs starter and some timely A's hitting. Key to early runs was a 2 run double from Eric Perez and an RBI double from Jose Martinez as well an RBI ground out from Siby Vizoso. With a 6-1 lead, the D'backs made a great comeback with a 5 spot in the bottom of the 7th as they took advantage of A's wildness and 3 costly errors. The A's answered quickly as Alvaro Gomez drove in 2 in a 4 run 8th inning rally to give the A's a 10-6 lead for an eventual 10-7 win. The 4 run cushion would be more than enough for Alex Arteaga who was lights out in Game 1. Alex pitched 7 of the 8 innings (he left after 6 and then came back to close it) while striking out 9. Key contributors offensively were Gomez who went 2-3 with 3 runs scored and 2 RBI, Jose Marintez who scored twice and stole a base and Albert Jarines who scored 2 runs. Game 2 was also a nail biter as the D'backs took an early 2-0 lead and the A's bats got cold after banging out 8 hits in game 1. But the A's tied the game in the 6th with a big RBI single from Ariel Bello and Carlos Alvarez and then took the lead in the 7th when Gomez singled and then stole 2nd and 3rd base before scoring on a SAC fly from Eric Perez. This would be enough for the A's as they held on for a 3-2 win and their 9th SFBL Championship!
