The Daytona Cubs (22-14) tied the Florida State League record with nine doubles in a 9-7 win over the Marauders (15-26) on Friday night at Jackie Robinson Ballpark. Jose Osuna led the Marauders offense with two home runs and four runs batted in. A sacrifice fly in the first gave Daytona the first run, but the lead was short lived. Osuna’s early blasts, a solo shot in the second and a three-run blast in the third, powered the Marauders to a 4-1 lead. Daytona starter Corey Black, making his first start since his trade from the Yankees, pitched four innings and struck out eight. Pat Ludwig (L, 0-2) failed to retire any of the five batters he faced in the fourth. Daytona sent 11 men to the plate against Ludwig and Joan Montero, plating seven runs. The previous high for runs surrendered in an inning by the Marauders this season was six. Bradenton cut the lead to 8-7 over the next two innings against Ben Wells (W, 7-6). Stetson Allie hit an RBI double in the fifth and scored that inning on a sacrifice fly by Dan Gamache. Bradenton tallied an unearned run in the sixth without a hit. Daytona picked up an insurance run in the seventh against Emmanuel De Leon, and Lendy Castillo retired nine in a row after a leadoff walk in the seventh to save the game. It was Castillo’s first save of the season.
