RED HOT CHIEFS DOWN TOP SEEDED RAYS

The #7 Sumay Chiefs continued their run through the Aloha Maid Amateur Playoffs knocking off #1 Rays 10-2 Sunday night at Okkodo High School.

PRESS RELEASE – The #7 Sumay Chiefs continued their run through the Aloha Maid Amateur Playoffs knocking off #1 Rays 10-2 Sunday night at Okkodo High School.

The Chiefs would put four runs on the board in the first inning and five more runs in the second inning and starting pitcher Ryan Coleman did the rest limiting the Rays to just one hit over six innings.

Coleman would run into some trouble in the 7th inning as the Rays would rally for two runs. But it was too little too late as Coleman would get the final out on strike three looking, earning the Chiefs a spot in the Aloha Maid Amateurs Upper Division Championship Game.

Coleman went seven innings allowing one earned run with eight strikeouts for Aloha Maid Player of the Game. Dave Santiago went 2 for 4 with two runs and an RBI and Blake Lawrence was 3 for 4 with two runs and two RBI to lead the Chiefs offense.

Athan Yatar went six strong innings with five strikeouts out of the bullpen after relieving starter Gerry Paulino in the second inning. The Rays pick up their first loss of the playoffs and play the #3 AutoSpot Canyons in the loser’s bracket semifinal with the winner getting another shot at the undefeated Sumay Chiefs in the Championship Game.

The Chiefs continue a improbably run coming into the playoffs with a 1-6 record and seven seeding out of eight teams. But the Chiefs have clicked at the right time rolling off wins agains #2 Agat Cardinals, #3 AutoSpot Canyons and #1 Rays. “Just getting hot at the right time, playing good defense and getting good pitching,” says Chief’s RJ Escalona.

In other action the AutoSpot Canyons moved on to take on the Rays in the semifinal with a 6-2 win over the Chalan Pago Amigos. Canyon’s starting pitcher Freddy Cepeda picked up Aloha Maid Player of the Game with three strikeouts and just two hits allowed over seven innings.
