Apaches logo

In the first game of the doubleheader, the Apaches won 9-5. The Apaches
collected eleven hits and scored nine runs, two in the 2nd, two in the 3rd, one in the 4th and four total runs in the 6th and
7th.

With the defense doing their job and not allowing extra outs, Jonathan Ellison was able to keep the defense and keep the
Coyotes on their toes. Ellison went 5 1/3, giving up two hits and allowing four runs while striking out 2 and walking
2.

Offensively, Logan Bottrell, Luis Hidalgo and Dominic DeMarco each had a multi-hit game while
combining for 5 RBI’s. Eight of the 9 hitters for the Apaches were able to reach base safely.

In the second game, the Apaches lost a tough one, 5-3 on a walk-off homerun by the Coyotes.

The Coyote pitcher did his job in the second game keeping the Apaches off balance by throwing two
quality pitches for strikes.

Jerry Ochoa took the ball allowing 2 runs in his 4 inning and Anthony Toribio picked him up with a solid 2 inning of work. Brett Matthews got the loss as he came in relief in the 7th.

The Apaches made it interesting in the top of the 7th by showing a little heart scoring 3 runs and tying
the game up. Coach Ingelhart decided to pinch hit Alexander Marco with two runners and he delivered,
hitting a ball over the left-center field fence.

That’s all the Apaches could do as they lost it in the bottom half.

Offensively, Max Draijer, Alexander Marco and Logan Bottrelll combined for all four
hits.
