The Amigos would jump out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning against 691 starter Albert Alex.  Bruce San Nicolas would get things started with a one out single and steal second.  Alan and Zack Quintanilla would then load the bases with back to back walks and Florencio Binuya would clear the bases with an rbi double.

Amigo’s shortstop Aleton Mesngon would add another run in the bottom of the 2nd  motoring around the bases on a drive to the left field gap for an inside the park homerun giving the Amigos a 4-0 lead.

691 would answer in the top of the 3rd inning and get on the board with Luis Aguon walking and coming around to score on a double play groundout cutting the Amigos lead to 4-1.
