ORIOLES TAKE CONTROL OF SERIES

After a tightly contested Game 1 and 2 the AM Insurance Orioles displayed just how dangerous they are after romping the IT&E Braves in Game 3 of the best of five series to take a 2-1 series lead at the Paseo Stadium Sunday night.

After a tightly contested Game 1 and 2 the AM Insurance Orioles displayed just how dangerous they are after romping the IT&E Braves 14-0 in Game 3 of the best of five series to take a 2-1 series lead at the Paseo Stadium Sunday night.

It was a tough night for the Braves at the mound as they had a disastrous 5th inning where they allowed 11 runs that dug them too deep a hole to climb out of.

Braves starting pitcher Jerry Paulino was making his exit in the bottom of the 5th inning for Cliff Raphael only trailing the Orioles 1-0. Paulino gave up a hit to Orioles’ Jathan Muna-Barnes and walked JR Hattig right after which prompted manager Derrick Santos to send in Raphael.

Raphael threw a wild pitch that allowed Muna-Barnes and Hattig to advance to third and second base with Orioles’ Matt Muna at bat. Muna then got a clean hit on a ball that sailed right past third base brining home the runners on second and third to go up 3-0.

Orioles’ JD San Nicolas hit a double a batter later after the O’s put up another run after a wild pitch.

Calvert Alokoa had the bases loaded at his at bat and he delivered in a big way by slamming shot through center field for another Orioles 2RBI double in the inning.

Muna-Barnes revisited the the plate for his second go around in the inning hitting an RBI single to pile on the runs.

Hattig then smashed a 2BI double to go up 11-0 blowing the game wide open. Miller Santos scored one more run to officially close out the 5th inning with a 12-0 lead.

The Orioles tacked on two more runs in the 6th inning to final the score.

The Braves are now one game away from elimination but will have to wait two full weeks as Guam Live 2014 will take over Paseo Stadium.

BBL action will resume Friday 13th, in game two between Jr. Nationals vs. The A’s.
