Pace edges Douglas in game of baseball powers

It was a meeting of high school baseball royalty on Wednesday night when defending 9A state champion Douglas traveled to Monsignor Pace High School to take on the defending 6A state runners up.

And when it was over, Pace, a team that came into the game “averaging” 14 runs per game and a team .405 batting average, came away with a 5-4 victory.

The winning run came home in the last of the sixth when — with two outs and a runner on first— Jeter Downs launched a high fly ball to center field that the center fielder overran, allowing Anthony Sanabria to come all the way around and score.

“Just a great game against a high quality opponent and the kind of game that gets you ready for the postseason,” said Pace coach Tom Duffin, whose team improved to 11-1. “Just a great job by the kids of finding a way to grind it out.”

Pace stunned Douglas starter and University of Miami commit Brandon Kaminer, who entered the game 4-0 with a 0.30 ERA and 40 strikeouts, for two runs in the first inning thanks to a pair of UM commits Downs and Michael Montes. Downs doubled and Montes singled him home before Montes scored on an Andres Sanchez double.

Trailing 3-0, Douglas (7-3) trimmed the Pace lead to 3-2 in the third on a two-RBI double from Missouri commit Chad McDaniel and tied it in the fourth on a David Vazqeuz solo home run.

Pace retook the lead in the bottom half of the inning when Brandon Cruz took Kaminer deep over the right center field fence marking the first homer given up by Kaminer in nearly a year.

Kaminer came out of the game with one out in the sixth and was not the pitcher of record.

He gave up six hits, three earned runs and struck out 10.
