Majors Dodgers @ Orioles, 2014-05-22 18:30:00                read full game highlight
Solid game played by the Dodgers and Orioles to close out the regular season games.
Highlights of the night for the Orioles were a couple of base knocks by Jake Reztlaff and a good pitching performance by Jerrod Miller and Eddie Moreno.

On the Dodger side it was a group effort on the mound which saw the Dodgers pitch 6 different kids. Cooper Telish, Cole Hunter, Christian Nuno, Luke Pruitt, Tyler Hentz, and Cameron Clark each pitched one inning and kept the Oriole bats at bay.

Big night at the plate for Cooper Telish in which he hit consecutive home runs with a 3 run blast and he followed it up with a big Grand Slam. The Dodger bats produced 13 runs on the night to preserve the victory.

Majors Royals @ Cardinals, 2014-05-20 18:30:00                read full game highlight
The first three innings produced a rather mild 1-0 result. The last three innings provided some fireworks. In the top of the fourth, the Cardinals turned three hits and one error into three more runs and a 4-0 lead. The Royals answered in the bottom of the fifth with a solo home run by Nolan Rodriguez and a three run shot by Jacob Frazier to tie the game. In the top of the final frame, the Cardinals scored the go ahead run, and the stage was set for a dramatic final half inning between the Cardinals and the top of the Royals batting order. A key hit by Logan Moran put the tying run at first base. A ground ball up the middle was handled deftly by the Cardinals to force out the lead runner. Brendon Cannings doubled for the Royals and the immediate future looked bright for the home team, but the Cardinals caught an overly aggressive runner for the second out. An Aiden Caron line drive seemed destined to be the final out, but it hit the ground just in time and the Royals had runners at first and third with two outs and there clean up hitter at the plate. Fortunately for the visitors, pitcher Alex Sotolongo was able to induce a ground ball to the shortstop and the inning ended as it began, with the Cardinals ahead by one run. It was a good game in which the consistent and alert Cardinals held off the up and down Royals.

A tight 2-1 game after two innings, the contest between the visiting Royals and the Angels took on a much different tone in the top of the third. After one walk, two singles, and yet another Aiden Caron home run, the Royals had a 6-1 lead, and were well on their way to a game changing 12 run inning. By the end of the game the Royals had converted 15 hits and several walks into 19 runs. The Angels put the ball in play consistently as well, but the Royals defense was in fine form, committing zero errors and smartly completing several challenging plays. The teams combined to use eleven different pitchers, but none had a better inning than Bruce Leavitt in his season debut. Steven Mara roped a nice double to the wall for the Halos, Colin O'Neill went 2-2, and Jeremy Lohmann was his teams RBI leader.

In the end, the Royals walked off into the night with a 19-5 victory.

Wow, what an exciting game. The Blue Jays are on a roll. Both teams were aggressive on offense and made good plays on defense. Pitchers on both teams rose to the occasion. The Giants rallied in the 4th and 5th innings with great hitting by Noah VandenVrijhoef, Victor Ravelo, and Jack DeVito. Artemis O'Reilly-Hahn after loading the bases was able to stay focused during the 4th inning and allowed only one run in. The ability of both teams to remained focused and competitive through out the game is a tribute to the determination of the players in our league.

Two games were played simultaneously on Thursday evening. In one game, the Orioles battled the Royals; in the other, the Royals batted themselves.

The Orioles scored eight runs on seven hits, and received four nice innings on the mound from Eddie Moreno. They also received a solid inning of relief from Jared DeMott. Jake Retzlaff and Luke Raus starred at the plate, each going 2-3.

On the other side of the diamond, the Royals defense was doing its best to undo the efforts of the Royals offense and pitching staff. Eight physical errors and two mental errors kept the Royals in tight spots throughout the contest. Fortunately, their timely hitting kept pace. Bradyn Wishek had a strong 3-4 night at the plate. Brendon Cannigns went 2-2, and Mae Key-Ketter added a timely hit down the right field line. Not to be outdone, Aiden Caron hit THE MOST IMPRESSIVE HOME RUN I HAVE EVER SEEN AT COLLEGE PARK. The line drive off of his bat took approximately one half of one second to clear the center field fence and it was still rising when its flight was interrupted by a pine tree. A local fan of physics estimated that it would have landed in Upland if the tree had not been in the way.

In the end, the Royals escaped with a 9-8 when the potential tying run was tagged out on a play at third base.
Majors Angels @ Dodgers, 2014-05-13 18:30:00                read full game highlight
On a night featuring cross town rivals in 2 separate sports. The NHL Ducks and Kings playing for the Western Conference championship. It was Baseball between the Dodger and Angels that took center stage in Claremont on this night. The visiting Dodgers took a quick 3-0 lead in the first inning. The Angels came back with a 4 run 2nd inning to take the lead. Heads up defense by the Dodgers prevented the Angels from making it a bigger inning as the fleet footed Brock Grillo was thrown out at 3rd base trying to advance from 1st base on a ground out. The throw to the plate was too late to get the incoming runner but the throw from the catcher Kameron Clark wasnt as he nailed a sliding Grillo at 3rd base to end the big inning. After order was restored by Angel relief pitchers, Collin O'Neil and Brock Grillo. The Angels added 4 more runs in the 3rd inning. Putting the halos up for good. Manager Olea used 6 pitchers to get the win. The Angels recorded 3 double plays and nearly a 4th if not for questionable call. The most dramatic part of the game came in the 4th inning with the league leader in HR's at the plate Cooper Tellish facing Angel reliever Max Suckely with 2 on and 2 outs. Max got ahead of the deadly hitting Cooper 0-2. Cooper proceeded to foul off the next 4 pitches. Max finally fanned Tellish with hard slider in the dirt to end the Dodgers threat and the inning. Noe Andujo closed the game with a perfect 6th inning. Kameron Clark had 3 walks for the Dodgers and Christian Nuno had 2 hits of the 6 Dodger hits on the night. Jeremy Lohmann and Steve (Steggi) Steggmeir had half of The Angels 10 hits between them. Lohmann was a perfect 3 for 3 and Steggi 2 for 3 with a double. As a bright spot in a under achieving Angel season the Angels took the season series from The Dodgers.
