GAME RECAP


PALO VERDE (7) - DESERT OASIS (3)

The Top 10 matchup was set with the #5 ranked Diamondbacks of Desert Oasis at the #8 ranked Palo Verde Panthers. DO's 2022 IF/OF, Elijah Hilliard, took no time at all to get the game started with the a leadoff homerun to left field, putting the D-Backs up 1-0 in the top of the 1st. The Panthers answered back by putting ups a five spot in the bottom of the 3rd with Uncommitted IF/RHP, Jason Schaaf, shooting an RBI single to right field, then with the bases loaded shortly after, Uncommitted 2022 1B/C, Tyler Johnson, turned around a fastball to left-centerfield to bring in all three runs and extend the Palo Verde lead. In the top of the 4th, Desert Oasis puts up a two spot in the top of the 4th to cut into the deficit, but were taken right back in the bottom of the 4th when Palo added two more of their own to open the lead back up to 7-3. In the 5th, 2023 IF/RHP and Pacific Commit, Kody Bialas, took the mound to throw two scoreless innings, sitting 85-86 mph with a tight 12/6 curveball that he used regularly when ahead in the count.
