A trio of games took place at Cunningham Park last week and one team widened their first place advantage. Coach Donald Greers Dodgers took a pair of games in convincing fashion. They knocked off the Marlins 9-2 on Tuesday then defeated Tarrs Longhorns 15-5 on Friday. The last place Braves put up a good fight but fell to the Angels 13-9.
The Dodgers got a stellar pitching performance from Stacy Greer to shut down the Marlins in a six-inning affair. Greer amassed 12 strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings while allowing only one run. Timothy Grindstaff came on to close the deal, striking out three in 1 1/3 innings.
The offense was just as productive with Grindstaff blasting two doubles and a single in addition to scoring three times. Petie Pavusek added a triple and a single. Omar Linares chipped by smashing a laser to right field.
Jordan Williams and Anthony Hall scored the lone runs for the Marlins.
The Braves gave the second place Angels quite a scare but came up four runs short at the end. They jumped on top 5-3 only to see the Angels storm back to go up by a pair.
Several players produced in helping the Angels achieve their bakers dozen.
Dylan Simcox smacked a double and single, going 2-2. Graham Reece had a pair of singles in three trips to the plate. Mason Bragg was 1-for-2 with a double. Trey Snyder also added a two-bagger.
Snyder and Caleb Fritts saw their first pitching action of the season and performed well for the Angels. They also got a strong performance by Dylan and Connor Simcox.
Isaiah Bennett smacked a double and single for the Braves. Will Henson was 1-2 with a run score.
