A little small ball in game one on a 73 degree day in the sun at The Big House, whooping sticks in game two. Small ball is fun when you have a pitcher throwing zeros, which the ACCAC Pitcher of the week continues to do. It's also fun when you can count on guys like Jaime Estrada and Tim Hergert to lay down these beauties to advance runners when runs are at a premium. Both bunts were perfectly laid and they make everyone incredibly happy. Hergert also swiped three bags.A perfect bunt from Aldo-nice big lead from Earl.
George Castillo threw a complete game shutout, was perfect through five, and struck out seven. One walk. That's a pitcher that dominated the day. The first game final was 3-0. It was MJ, Tim Hergert and Scooter Kobar who drove in the three runs, and you just can't beat a nine-hole hitting .424 as Kobar is.ACCAC Pitcher of the Week George Castillo in a complete game shutout.
"Yes, we expected good things from George" said Head Coach Anthony Gilich. "He's real close to exceeding expectations."
MJ ripped one into the left-center gap with bases stocked in the fourth inning of game two to break open a tight game and the hits kept coming in a 14-5 win for the sweep of Glendale Community College. You wonder if Josh Ethier lives on base. Each time you look up, there he is on second. Two more hits for the starting shortstop to keep him hitting at .400, MJ had three hits on the day to raise his average to .446. Caleb Henderson and Colby Hamilton each doubled twice, Toby Johnson collected two hits and the two hole in Jaime Estrada is hitting balls everywhere. Justin Seiwald picked up another win in game two and bullpen with Michael Lopez and Christian Botnick finished off Glendale giving up nothing.
