The Arenosos de Camuy beat the Toritos de Cayey 8-6 on Saturday in the second game of the 2023 finals of the Double A Superior Baseball League held at the Juan ”Cheo” López Stadium in Camuy.

Although Cayey -- which won the series opener at home, 4-0 on Friday night -- was the first to step on the plate with a single by Christian Torres in the first inning, the Arenosos answered with five runs in the bottom half of the inning.

Kerby Camacho doubled in the first run for Camuy and a home run by Víctor Claudio with two on board gave the Arenosos a 4-1 lead. Dennis Pérez homered to make it 5-1.

All five Arenosos runs came with no outs off right-handed starter Jesús Ortiz, who was punished with five hits without retiring a batter. He took the loss, while left-hander Henry Iglesias earned the victory with 2.1 innings in relief.

In the third inning, Michael Arroyo brought Cayey closer with a home run, but in the sixth inning, an RBI single by Camacho extended Camuy’s lead to 6-3.

Torres singled in a run in the seventh inning to narrow Cayey’s deficit to two runs, but a pinch-hit, RBI single by Camuy’s Fernando García in the bottom of the inning made it 7-4.

In the eighth inning, Bryan Collazo was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, bringing in Noel Cuevas for Camuy’s eighth run. The Toritos’ Nelson Molina and Kevin Luciano each homered with nobody on base in the ninth inning for the final tally.

The series continues this Friday at 8 p.m. at Pedro Montañez Stadium in Cayey.
