CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Behind three RBI doubles from senior catcher Alex San Juan, the Green Team evened up the annual Orange-Green Fall World Series by taking Wednesday's game two by a final score of 7-3.

As they did in game one, Green raced out to an early lead. In the top of the first inning, San Juan's two-RBI double off Orange starter Vince Kossak opened up a 2-0 advantage. Green would extend the lead to 3-1 in the top of the second with a sacrifice fly from junior John Lawroski that plated freshman Ricky Eusebio from his perch at third.

Orange would respond, however, cutting the deficit on Grant Heyman's first of two runs scored on the day. Heyman opened the inning with a double roped off Green starter Javi Salas, scoring on an RBI groundout to make it 3-2 by the bottom of the second.

Both Salas and Kossak settled down after some early rough patches. Salas finished his final inning in impressive fashion, retiring the Orange side in order to end his outing. The Coral Gables, Fla., native scattered six hits and struck out two batters through five full innings of work.

Seeing his first action of the fall classic, redshirt freshman Jace Herrera entered in a sticky situation in the top of the fourth. With the game tied and two runners on base, Lawroski was thrown out on an attempted double steal. Herrera then recorded the final out of the inning by inducing a groundout of freshman Brandon Lopez, keeping the game deadlocked at 3-3.

San Juan's second RBI double of the game, plating senior outfielder Chantz Mack all the way from first, regained a 4-3 advantage for the Green Team. Freshman David Thompson followed up by recording his first RBI of the Fall World Series, knocking in San Juan.

Green added two insurance runs in the top of the seventh on an RBI single from Lopez through the left side and the third double of the game for San Juan. Senior reliever Eric Nedeljkovic pitched a clean final frame, clinching the game for the Green Team.

The two teams will return to the diamond on Friday for game three. First pitch from Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field is set for 3 p.m.
