Miramar Breaks Out The Offense In Win Over Hallandale

Miramar pitcher threw 4 shutout innings Thursday night with 11 runs of support from his offense.

The Miramar Patriots beat the Hallandale Chargers 11-1 in five innings on Thursday evening, despite a few drizzles of rain throughout.

With an opening day win, Hallandale started off the season 1-0, and drove down to Miramar High for what was an offensive slanted game. Rafael Sanchez started the game off for Hallandale with a long double to left-center, and followed that up in the fourth inning with a triple. Miramar starting pitcher, Ed Sanchez worked out of jams in four of his five innings of work, proving resilient.

Miramar (2-2) scored two runs early on back to back hit-by-pitches, followed by a sac-fly by Adrian Martinez and singles from Chris Beach and Ellen Cancel. The Patriots scored again in the second with a triple by shortstop Alex Rodriguez and single by pitcher Ed Sanchez.

Hallandale (1-1) answered back in the third with a run from pinch-runner Damian Johnson, but saw no more runners cross the plate for the night.

Hallandale starting pitcher Josh Martinez had his night cut short after Miramar tacked on two more runs in the third with a Jose Artiles double. Rafael Sanchez took to the mound, but gave up another run before the inning ended.

In the fourth, a defensive miscue followed by a Chris Beach single set the stage for Cancel, who drove a towering shot to left for a three run blast.

Miramar shortstop Ellin Cancel is greeted by his teammates after a three-run home run in the fourth.

“He’s been our starting second-baseman for two years and has been a real asset to the team. He got a couple hits early, he showed some patience, and it paid off for him,” said Miramar Manager Mario Rodriguez.

That is all Miramar needed, as Ed Sanchez threw two more innings of shutout baseball.

For a young program and its new Manager Greg Conde, the Chargers look to the positives in Thursday’s loss.

“The guys know they have to work hard to compete. This is good experience for us against a good team, and now we know what it’s going to take to get to where we want to go as a ball club,” said Conde.

Miramar takes on West Broward (3-0) Friday afternoon at 3:45 PM for the Patriots’ first district game.
