Coral Shores starting pitcher Tyler Rodriguez pitched five innings and recorded 12 strikeouts in a 4-0 shutout over the Marathon Dolphins at Founders Park on March 29. Rodriguez was dealing as he mowed down eight of the first 10 batters he faced through his first three innings. The Hurricanes offense jumped out in front, scoring three runs in the bottom of the first against Marathon’s Mathew Kratzert. Following the first inning, Marathon’s Kratzert settled in by not allowing another hit through his outing, picking up five strikeouts in total. Marathon added hits by Corbin Neller, Enmanuel Polanco, and Dylan Globe the rest of the way. The Dolphin shortstop, eighth-grader Gavin Leal, did all he could keeping the Dolphins in the game defensively the entire game. The Canes’ Dylan Bloom struck out the side in the sixth and seventh innings to secure the victory. The Hurricanes and Dolphins turn right back around and meet up again when the Fins host the Canes Friday, April 2 at 7 p.m.
