Saldana, Juan Luis Injectables Roll Over Public Works Pavers 8-1

June 25, 2008 — The Juan Luis Hospital Injectables knocked off the Public Works Pavers 8-1 in governmental coed softball Tuesday night at the Renholt Jackson Sport Complex in Estate Whim behind a strong four-hit, one-run pitching effort from Saolo Saldana.
The Injectables grabbed a 3-1 advantage in the bottom of the first inning and never looked back as they cruised to a relatively easy, time-shortened five-inning victory.
Batting first, the Pavers scored their only run of the game in the top of the first inning on Luis Roman's RBI single. That lead was short-lived, however, as the Injectables grabbed the lead for good at 3-1 in the bottom of the inning, scoring three runs on a two-run home run by Dennis Brow and an error on the Pavers' left fielder.
The Injectables extended their lead to 6-1 in the bottom of the second, plating three runs on a bases-loaded walk drawn by Brow, a sacrifice fly by Eustace Davis and an RBI ground out by Raymond Cintron.
With Saldana pitching his strongest game of the season, the score would remain that way until the bottom of the fourth inning, when the Injectables closed out the scoring for the game with two runs on RBI singles by Myron Johannes and Saldana for the final score of 8-1.
Saldana went the distance to pick up the win on the hill for the Injectables, while Benny Luis got the loss for the Pavers. Top hitters for the Injectables were Brow, 1 for 2 with a home run and three RBIs; Davis, 2 for 3 with an RBI; and Rashawn Foster, 2 for 3. For the Pavers, Roman went 1 for 2 with an RBI and Luis and Feliciano Cintron both went 1 for 2.
