Los Arenosos score a historic victory and tie the final of the Double A Superior Baseball

Camuy – Victor Claudio hit a three-run home run and the Arenosos de Camuy scored five times in the first inning to hold on and beat the Toritos de Cayey 8-6 on Saturday in the second game of the final of the Double A Superior Baseball in the Juan “Cheo” Lopez park.

The victory was historic since the “Romantic City” hosted a championship series match for the first time since 1957, the year the “Camuy Arenas” club was founded.

The series tied 1-1 continues next Friday in Cayey.

After being shut out by starter Freddie Cabrera in the opener on Friday, the Sandys punished starter Jesus Ortiz early, who did not survive the opening inning without getting outs.

After walking Noel Cuevas and Kelvin Correa to first base due to an error by third baseman Nelson Molina, Kerby Camacho’s RBI double tied the game at 1-1.

With runners in the corners, Claudio disappeared the ball to left field to break the tie and start the party in the stands of the Camuy park. Ranger Christian Torres made a good jump on the fence in an attempt to catch the ball, without success.

Immediately afterwards, manager and catcher Dennis Perez hit a solo home run to right field for the home team’s fifth run in the first inning.

Ortiz left the game with four earned runs, five hits, one walk and no strikeouts.

Cayey came closer in the third with a two-run home run by Michael Arroyo off the pitches of starter Gregorio Reyes, who had 4.1 innings of six hits and three earned runs.

Reyes ran into trouble in the first inning loading the bases. The Toritos scored first with a grounder to left fielder Noel Cuevas. Cuevas shot home to throw out Richard Gonzalez to avoid the visitors’ second goal.

Camacho gave Camuy another run in the sixth with an unstoppable RBI off Jose Burgos, who had tied up the home team’s bats for 5.1 innings after the Ortiz debacle.

Cayey stayed alive in the seventh with a RBI grounder to Torres’ left field that made the score 6-4. However, Camuy took off again in the “lucky inning” with an undisputed RBI by Fernando Garcia as a pinch hitter.

A hit by Toritos reliever Jose Acosta to Bryan Collazo brought Cuevas to the plate for the eighth score.

Cayey continued to score in his last opportunity in the ninth after Nelson Molina’s homer off Jonathan Pacheco, who was immediately replaced by right-hander Jorge Charrys Santiago.

After one out, Santiago suffered the same fate when Kevin Luciano took him the distance with a club to right field. Santiago was able to get the last two outs to preserve the lead and Camuy take the win.
