No tying in baseball? American, Doral run out of time at Marlins Park

American High and Doral Academy were in the middle of a true pitchers’ duel Monday when the scoreless baseball game came to a halt after eight innings.

The game wasn’t called because of darkness, however, but because it exceeded the time limit allowed for high school games at Marlins Park.

Monday’s official result: A scoreless tie.

When the two teams rented out Marlins Park for a combined $24,000 (money offset by selling tickets to the game as well as reselling Marlins’ Opening Day tickets), they signed a contract stipulating two hours and/or seven innings on the Major League diamond.

Neither team scored in the extra frame. The ninth inning never came.

“We paid a lot of money to not to be able to finish the game,’’ Doral coach Ralph Suarez said. “I feel bad for my kids. It was a great experience being out there, but it was a costly two hours.’’

PJ Loyello, a senior vice president with the Marlins, said with so many high school teams using the park (there was a double header Monday and another scheduled for Tuesday) the agreed-to time limit must be enforced.

“It’s unfortunate there wasn’t a winner or a loser in their game,’’ Loyello said. “We gave them extra time and an extra inning in trying to draw the game to a conclusion.”

Monday’s game will not be completed, Suarez said, because it was not a district contest.

Doral is 5-4-1; American is 6-2-1.

Pine Crest center Antonio Vrankovic (6-11, 265) could be headed to perennial NCAA power Duke.

Vrankovic made an unofficial visit to Durham last week and a scholarship offer could be imminent. Miami, Georgia and Boston University are among those who have shown interest in Vrankovic in the past.

Vrankovic averaged 27.5 points (fifth in Florida) and 16.2 rebounds (second) this past season. His father Stojan Vrankovic (7-2) played for three NBA teams. Vrankovic scored 55 points in a game this past season to share the school record with current Phoenix Suns guard Brandon Knight.

“Antonio has a major upside,” former Pine Crest coach David Beckerman said. “He has great hands and ranks high in the skill areas. He has a natural ability. In the last three years he really has improved 100 percent. His basketball IQ is quite high.”
