Mourning Senior Four-Run Fourth Propels Them To 6A-16 Victory

The Mourning Senior Sharks traveled to take on 6A-16 rival North Miami Beach Chargers in a late season district showdown. The game was tied entering the fourth inning, but four runs in the top half of the frame propelled the Sharks to a 7-2 victory.

Each team traded runs in the third inning. First, the Sharks (9-12, 7-5) took the 1-0 lead on a run scored by Jose Marquez after he led off the inning with a bunt single down the third baseline. The Chargers (4-12, 2-10) tied the game in the bottom half of the inning when Jesus Morel scored after Joel Zequera reached on an error by the Sharks infield.

The Sharks took control of the game the very next inning as they hung four runs on the Chargers. Fabian Ortega got things going with an RBI double that scored Max Liff from third. Then, several miscues on the Chargers, including two passed balls, allowed Ortega, Marquez, and Anthony Antigua to add to the lead with three more runs.

Jim Varona didn’t start the game for the Sharks but came in in the third and finished the game to pick up the victory. Varona threw 58 pitches over 4.2 innings, allowing no hits, one run, and striking out five.

Morel scored his second run of the game for the Chargers in the fifth to close the gap, but a double from Antiqua in the fifth and a bases-loaded walk in the sixth added two more runs for the Sharks. The Chargers couldn’t get another base runner the rest of the game and the Sharks locked down the 7-2 district win, sweeping the season series.
