2010 LYB Majors Angels TOC Game #2

The Angels played the second game of the Laguna Youth Baseball Major Tournament of Champions. They played the Red Sox. The Angels had beaten the Red Sox by the score of 16 to 6 in the first game of the season in late March and by the score of 15 to 2 in early May.

At the plate, Jack was 2 for 3 with a triple, a hit by pitch, two RBIs and three runs scored. In his first plate appearance against Santos, Jack blooped a 1 and 1 pitch behind first base. The first baseman made a nice running over the shoulder catch for the out. With two out in the third and Niko on third base, Jack crushed a 0 and 2 pitch from Santos over the head of the right fielder to the fence. Jack motored into third for a triple. This is only the second triple of the year for the Angels; Niko had one earlier in the season. Jack scored on Dominic's single. In his third plate appearance, Jack was hit by a 1 and 0 pitch. He scored on a single by Ben. Jack drove a 1 and 0 pitch down the third base line that bounced wildly in foul territory for a single in his fourth plate appearance. Zach scored from third. Jack scored on Anthony's bloop single.

In the field, Jack played three innings at third and one inning at first. At first, Braden made a nice stop on a hard grounder and threw to Jack for the out in the second inning. In the fourth inning at third, Jack made one of the sweetest looking plays of the season. Ranging far to his left in front of Niko on an infield grounder, Jack picked the ball up clean and threw a strike to first base. It was a major league looking play.

After a 1, 2, 3 first inning against Santos, the Angels rolled. The Angels put runs on the board in every inning. The Red Sox ran out of pitching and the Angels won by the score of 19 to 3. The box score is here and the game log is here. The Angels play the Blue Jays on Saturday morning.
