Explorers Win “Pitchers Duel” 8-0; Pick Up First District Win
Last night, the Explorers took on the Ferguson Falcons in a district game that saw 2 great pitchers for both teams in what was expected to be a pitcher’s duel. The Explorers pitcher, junior Jonathan Gonzalez, lived up to this as he threw a gem for the Explorers. He tossed 6 scoreless innings allowing no runs and striking out 8 Ferguson hitters while picking up his first career varsity win. In the 4th, seniors Carlos Linares and Alex Rodriguez, junior Jake Marquez and sophomore Ariel Garcia all got hits to spark an Explorers rally that saw them score 7 runs off of Ferguson’s ace. The Explorers won the “pitcher’s duel” by a final score of 8-0. The Explorers travel to South Dade tonight to take on the Buccaneers at 6:30.
