The team has great depth, says Manager Keith Ramsey. "Our bench of James Park, Matt Devico, and Cooper Sutherland contributed 4 RBIs and Jake Gordon had 3 hits," he told DigMB.com.
The team's next game is Saturday, July 25 at 10 a.m. against the winner of a game between teams from Golden Hills and Chino.
