For those who thought the Yellow Jerseys were cursed that is FICTION. The Apollos played very well in Gold.
Apollos 4 Mudcats 0
Sonny Terrazas threw a shutout and the Apollos managed 4 runs off the very hard throwing Mudcat Starter. Jeff Murphy doubled in a run. Clifton Siems drove in two runs.. The Apollo defense made only one error. The Mudcats actually had bases loaded and no outs in first inning and failed to score...Apollos qualify for Championship game against the Astros
Apollos 3 Raiders 1
Mike Estrada held the Raiders to one run and the Apollo defense was very solid.. Clifton Siems drove in all three runs, two hit and two runs for Andrew Dunn and a walk and a run by Rene Chapa.. A solid win against a solid Raider pitcher.
Apollos 10 Braves 0
Three Apollos pitchers combined to only allow two base runners...Jason Ryan struck out all 6 batters he faced. The first 5 on 15 pitches. Great pitching also from Joseph Kantz and Sonny Terrazas..
Offensively Rene Chapa hit his first home run and all but one batting spot produced a run..
Metro Astros 4 Apollos 3
The Apollos made 4 errors which resulted in 4 Astro runs and never got their bats going in time and dropped the opener. Chris McCreery two run homer was too late..
