Apollos win first offical game 4-2 over Cougars
Sean Salinas pitched 5 innings allowing only 1 run and hit a home run to lead the Apollos to their first victory. Jason Atwell reached base three times but unfortunately he was traded before the game for Jeff Murphy and a dozen baseballs to the League City Astros....During the game he broke his ankle so the trade is pending.. The Apollos played solid defense and had their pitchers throw strikes.
The offense will progress next week.
