The Illinois Lightning saw some power in their lineup from their four hitter.

He had a balanced setup with a long stride that was able to generate power and solid contact on the baseball. Aside from his homerun, Pacella showed patience at the plate by walking twice. Continued his power streak against ISA Stars, launching two home runs, including a grand slam, and driving in seven runs. Appeared on the mound as well against ProPlayer Canes - Freund on Friday night. Long and loose arm action, over-the-top slot. Deceptive delivery, hides the ball well.
