Both Dominic and Jude hit hard line drives that Century second baseman Derek Chaves dove and put glove on to prevent them from both being at least doubles. Sean Reed came into pitch for Century 21. Anthony Smith singled to load the bases. Kris Estrada tripled to drive in 3 runs. Reed struck out the next batter. Georgie Miller grounded out to score Estrada. Sam Signa made the play of the Century when he went back and made a diving catch on the pop up hit by by Baca.
It was a great 3 game series. Both teams left it all on the field. Congratulations to both teams who went from being the bottom 2 teams together, to being the middle 2 teams together to being the top 2 teams together. We look forward to seeing everyone come back next year.
