Miami Explodes in Big Win Over Maine on Sunday

Canes find their bats in 11-2 rout of Black Bears

The #16 Miami Hurricanes scored early and often in an 11-2 blowout victory of the visiting Maine Black Bears on Sunday afternoon. Miami bashed out twelve hits to take the rubber game of a three game set with Maine. Coming off a 3-1 loss to the Black Bears on Saturday night, concern was a little elevated by an offense who could only muster two base hits. However, that concerned quickly turned into excitement as Miami scored two runs in the first, one in the second, and put the game out of reach with a five run third inning.

David Thompson led off the third with a double. The next batter Brad Fieger brought him home with a single. After a Willie Abreu double moved Fieger to third,  Garrett Kennedy  knocked them both in with a double of his own. Alex Hernandez then followed with a double to knock in Kennedy, all before the first out was recorded. When the dust settled  the Canes scored five runs on five hits (four of them doubles) and had an 8-1 lead.

Junior LHP Andrew Suarez looked great in his season debut, allowing only four hits and striking out a career high ten batters over five innings to earn the win. Thomas Woodrey and Danny Garcia each hurled two scoreless innings, respectively to close out the game for Miami.

With the win Miami wins the series over Maine and moves to 2-1 on the young season. Next game for the Hurricanes is Wednesday evening against Florida Atlantic University at Mark Light Field. First pitch is scheduled for 6pm. After the mid-week game with FAU, the Canes will gear up for a showdown, as the in-state rival Florida Gators come to Coral Gables for a three game series next weekend.
