AAA Clash Ends With a Great Comeback Angels Victory
Xavier LaSala has been just about unhittable this year and he helped the Dodgers get off to an early 3-0 lead. Tensions grew as the game stayed that way until the fourth inning when the Angels scored 2, turning the game into a squeaker. The Angels then scored 4 in the top of the 6th, highlighted by Nico Stavros’ absolute bomb over the centerfielder’s head, and Henry Stevens shut the door on the Dodgers comeback to lead the Angels to the 6-3 win.
AAA Red Sox get their 2nd consecutive win
The AAA Red Sox got their second consecutive win on Saturday, beating the the Lake Forest Rippers 9-4 with another strong showing by their pitching rotation. James Pitt, Anthony Kamae, Leo Gonzales, and Wyatt Cobb combined for 11 strikeouts over 6 innings while giving up only one hit. Kamae got the win on the mound while helping himself with an RBI line drive at the plate. Offensively, Gonzales’ first-inning homer got the Red Sox started with two runs. Jack Tran stayed hot, adding two more hits to his season, while Alex Tsujiuchi, Landon Chen, Darren Chen, Colin Bohm, and Caleb Pagatpatan all added hits. The game ended on a fantastic 4-3-2 double play, with Isaiah Romero getting the put-out to Tran at first, who then whipped it home to Pitt for the tag-out. Tran received the game ball for his consistency in clutch situations.
