Please Note: The Red Sox-Rays Majors game this Saturday at 4:15 has been rescheduled for Monday April 21st at 5:00 PM. The Rays will now be playing a doubleheader Monday night instead.
Congratulations to the Majors Angels, who finished the first half of the season undefeated at 10-0. They are currently three games ahead of the White Sox for the title of UALL Champions, with five teams behind them who are all gunning for them.
Highlights from this week's games -
The Red Sox scored seven runs in the second inning thanks to doubles by Hector Rivas and Camden Cooper, as they knocked off the Yankees by the score of 12-6.
Rodolfo Lopez of the Angels and Angel Mendoza of the White Sox faced off in the best pitchers' duel so far of the season. And despite Mendoza striking out an amazing 14 Angels in 5 innings, it was not enough to match Lopez's 3-hit, 10 strikeout shutout masterpiece. The Angels win 1-0 thanks to Joseph Sandoval's home run to left leading off the bottom of the third.
In Minor A...
Allyssa Guicharnaud hit a two run triple as the Mariners ended the undefeated streak of the Red Sox. The M's knock off the first place Sox by the score of 8-6.
The Tigers defeated the A's 15-8 to pick up their first win of the season.
