A's Bring Game, Slay Grays

The Grays brought a new look to Fireman's Park in Waterloo today with five players making their league debuts but they didn't fool the A's, who banged out twelve hits en route to an 11-0 Win.

Part of the Grays new look featured Zach Gondek starting on the mound and after a shaky start (three HBP's) he appeared to be settling into a bit of a groove. Unfortunately while delivering a pitch to A's slugger Danny Kennedy he felt a pop in his elbow and had to come out. Veteran Greg Gaber came in and got the third out and worked through a quick third inning. The A's plated four runs in the 4th however to extend their lead to 9-0 and that was more than enough for A's veteran Andy Derocher who tossed a seven inning (run rule) complete game shoutout.

The new Grays showed promise and when the six absent regulars return they may be heard from yet. The A's moved to 3-0 on the new season with a big one tomorrow vs. Los Banditos, who won the early game over Los Nicas, running their own record to 3-0.
