APARICIO SHUTS OUT MIAMI CHRISTIAN, 6-0

Kike Aparicio threw six shutout innings, striking out five and walking none, to lead Southwest to a 6-0 victory over Miami Christian in an opening round game of the HSBN March Madness Shootout at Pace High School. The Eagles (8-8) got the only run Aparicio would need in the top of the first when Jorge Tejeda singled, took second on the throw, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on an error by the shortstop. Southwest took a 2-0 lead in the third when Danny Cruz was hit by a pitch, stole second after escaping a rundown, and scored on another Tejeda single. The Eagles scored four runs in the sixth inning. Brett Mantrana led off with a double to left field and took third on a wild pitch. A walk to Aparicio and a bunt single by Lewis Romero loaded the bases. Two outs later, Eddie Sierra picked up an RBI by drawing a walk, courtesy runner Jordan Worley raced home on a wild pitch and Orbetaís third single of the game drove in the final two runs. Orbeta shutout the Victors (thatís their nickname, not their Saturday status) in the seventh to preserve the win.
