Sanford Monarchs @ Winter Garden Tangelos (7-2 SAN)
The Sanford Monarchs (4-4), who were currently riding a 3 game winning streak, played the Winter Garden Tangelos in the only game of the weekend for the Future’s League. A huge first inning was all the Monarchs needed for the win as they pushed across all 7 of their runs in the first inning. After a lead off single followed by back to back walks, Connor Andrews (Lake Sumter State College) came up to the plate with the bases loaded and with the swing of the bat cleared them all with one out grand slam. The Monarchs kept pouring it on in the inning with 3 more runs plated before the Tangelos made it out of the nightmare of an inning. The Tangelos pushed across a run in the first and the second inning but the Monarchs shut down all scoring after that. Eldridge Figueroa (University of Arkansas Little Rock) went 3-4 with 5 stolen bases and Stephan Perez-Collazo (Florida National University) went 3-4 as well for the Monarchs. Two bright spots for the Tangelos were Andrew Paraiso, who threw 4 shutout innings of relief, and Jarret Riffle (Pfeiffer University) had two hits despite the loss. This game pushes the Monarch win streak to 4 games.
