GMAC baseball first round - Big wins for Ferguson and Southridge; North half interrupted by inclement weather

Due to that monster thunder storm that hit the North Miami area this afternoon, the Killian-Goleman and Hialeah-Columbus games at Alex Fernandez Field were postponed until Tuesday afternoon.

The other half of the bracket at Southridge went on without any weather issues. Ferguson broke open a tie game in the fourth inning and mercy-ruled Miami Springs 11-1 in six innings. From Melissa Arteaga's story that will post later online at www.miamiherald.com/hssports: Ferguson senior Javy Barros (5-1) threw a complete game and allowed just two hits and an unearned run, while striking out three. Senior Bryant Elliott went one-for-three with a double and three RBIs to ignite the Falcons’ fourth inning rally.

In the late game, Southridge won a closer game 7-4 against American to advance to the semis. The Spartans, a favorite to win it will play either Hialeah or Columbus next.

The tournament will now be run over the next 3 days. Here's the new schedule.
