SOUTHWEST MIAMI HIGH SCHOOL EAGLES BASEBALL
MICHAEL PADRON SHUTS DOWN GABLES, 8-2
Michael Padron allowed only four hits in six innings on the mound to lead Southwest past Coral Gables, 8-2, at Andre Dawson Field. The only run he allowed was unearned as it scored on a two-out, dropped fly ball. The Eagles (6-2-1) took advantage of the wildness of Cavaliers starter Ernest Denis to score two runs in the first inning. Erick Mondelo and Erick Orbeta drew walks with one out. Jorge Tejeda beat out an infield hit to load the bases before Denis hit both Lorenzo Hernandez and Eddie Sierra with pitches, each forcing in a run. Before the day was over, five Eagles would be hit by five pitches, one short of the school record. In the second inning, Danny Cruz doubled, moved to third on a fielder’s choice and score on a wild pitch to make it 3-0. Two more runs scored in the fifth. With one out, Damian Alfonso and Jordan Worley were both hit by pitches, moved up on a ground out and scored on a Mondelo single. The final three runs came in the sixth. Worley doubled to right and scored on a single by Cruz. Mondelo was hit by a pitch, and he and Cruz each advanced on a stolen base. A wild pitch plated Cruz before an Orbeta single drove home Cruz. The Cavaliers, co-leaders in district 14-9A, fell to 5-3-1. The box score is here.
Michael Padron lowered his ERA to 0.89
