Yigolos hold on for 2-1 win over Rebels, stay unbeaten 7-0

Leo Palace Baseball League Saturday action featured AAA matchup with the 1st place Yigolos taking on the Merizo Rebels.  Much like their first matchup of the season both teams got great starting pitching and little offense and the end result was the exact same score with the Yigolos pulling out the 2-1 win.

Yigolos would score two runs in the 2nd inning off a 2 rbi single by John Concepcion which would end up being the game winning hit.  Rebel’s Joey Blas would again toe the rubber and throw another gem only to pick up the loss as the Rebels could not get anything going offensively with only 3 hits in the game.  The Rebels had a chance in the bottom of the 7th loading the bases with two outs against Yigolos reliver Peterson Guerrero.  The Yigolos would preserve the win nailing runner Paul Taijeron at the plate as he tried to steal home to end the game.

Cliff Rafael picks up the win for the Yigolos throwing 6 solid innings striking out five and Guerrero picks up the save.  The Rebels fall to 1-6 and the Yigolos stay perfect improving to 7-0.

Winning Pitcher- Cliff Raphael; Save- Peterson Guerrero; Losing Pitcher- Joey Blas

Phillies blank AF Reserves 6-0

Sunday action featured a AAA division matchup with the Philip & Son’s Phillies taking on AF Reserves.  Phillies starter Chad Palomo would keep the AF Reserves guessing all game as he throws a nifty 3 hit shutout to blank the AF Reserves 6-0.  Brandon San Nicolas was 2-4 with an rbi and stolen base to help pace the Phillies offense.

Palomo went the distance and striking out six batters to pick up the win for the Phillies who improve to 2-4 on the season.  AF Reserves still looking for their first win of the season fall to 0-6

Winning Pitcher- Chad Palomo; Losing Pitcher- James Lizama

AM-PCR Angels rip Rangers 15-0

The Sunday night game was another AAA matchup between the AM-PCR Angels and Talofofo Rangers.  The Angels used a big 7 run 5th inning to end the game via the 10 run mercy rule and cruise to the 15-0 win over the Rangers.

A perfect storm when poor defense, walks and no hitting all combine to make for a very lopsided scoring game.  The Rangers committed seven errors and allowed 9 unearned runs to dig a hole that their offense couldn’t get out of which managed only 3 hits against Angels pitching.

Randy Alcantara was 2-4 with 3 runs and 1 rbi to help pace the Angels offense in the win.  Angel’s starter Chad Fernandez picks up the win going 3 innings allowing no hits and striking out two.  Angels improve to 6-1 on the season with their only loss to the 1st place Yigolos.

Andrew Taijeron, Angelo Taijeron and Robbie Rabago picked up the only hits for the Rangers.  Joseph Salas picks up the loss on the mound.  Rangers fall to 3-5 on the season.

Winning Pitcher- Chad Fernandez; Losing Pitcher- Joseph Salas
