Class AA

No. 1 EAST 4 No. 4 PENFIELD 0

East used a four-run first inning to set the scoring for the game. John Segarra and Jordi Agosto led off with back-to-back singles. Darnell Patterson loaded the bases after getting hit by a pitch. Segarra scored after Eric Maldonado reached on an error. Angel Segarra then singled scoring Agosto. Jose Gonzalez got hit by a pitch with the bases loaded scoring Patterson and then Pablo Garcia drew a bases loaded walk which scored Maldonado.

Those four runs proved to be the only runs scored all game as great pitching and defense took over by both teams after the first inning.
