EAGLES BEAT MIAMI HIGH BY MERCY RULE, 12-1

Michael Piulats went 3-for-3 and drove in five runs to lead Southwest to a season-opening 12-1 victory over Miami High in the Dave Westberry PAL Classic at Andre Dawson Field. Ryan Acosta allowed just three hits in four innings pitched and struck out six to pick up the win. The Eagles scored five runs in the first inning on six hits. With one out, Danny Cruz reached on an infield hit, Jorge Tejeda was hit by a pitch and both runners moved up on a wild pitch. Brett Mantrana beat out an infield hit to score Cruz and a Piulats double scored two more. Piulats took third on the throw and raced home on a wild pitch. The final run of the inning scored when freshman Lorenzo Hernandez singled in freshman Eddie Sierra. Southwest made it 8-0 in the second when Piulats singled home courtesy runner Justin Worley and Sierra doubled to score Mantrana and Piulats. The Eagles stretched the margin to 11-1 in the third. Erick Orbeta singled, went to third on a Cruz double and scored on a balk. Tejeda walked to put runners on the corners and Piulats’ second double of the game scored them both. The Eagles' final run came in the fourth when an Orbeta sacrifice fly plated Worley. In three games, two of which were preseason contests, Southwest has outscored its opponents by a combined 41 to 2.
