The Juncos Mules (los Mulos de Juncos) defeated the host Florida Titans (los Titanes de Florida) 3-0 on Sunday in the Double A Superior Baseball League’s Carnival of Champions.


Juncos, which blanked the Cabo Rojo Pirates (los Piratas de Cabo Rojo) 1-0 on Saturday, was the only team with a 2-0 record in the round-robin tournament through Sunday’s games. Florida fell to 1-1.


Star left-hander Luis Cintrón went eight innings, scattering four hits and striking out six to pick up the win for Juncos. Right-hander Héctor Quiñones pitched the ninth inning to earn the save.


A single by Juncos’ Richard Vincent González drove in the first run of the game in the fourth inning. In the fifth inning, González was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to push across the second run, and a ninth-inning single by Luis Román drove in the game’s third and final run.


Left-hander Joshua Santiago allowed the first two runs in six innings to take the loss for the Titans.
