Arroyo Seco Sentinels coach, Nico Calderaro: “It was a good baseball game all around. It was a quiet offensive day for both teams. We were able to pitch, play defense and try to score one more run than them and had a couple really good at-bats from our guys. Eddie is working back from Tommy John surgery and I liked how he went right at guys and was working on trying to fill up the zone and get contact. He got into a little jam in his second inning of work, but picked up a strikeout to end the threat. Caleb has been our guy all summer and we knew what we were getting with him before we started. He’s been dominant and gives us a chance to win every game he’s pitching in. Joe came in and did a great job today as well, focused on using his defense and getting ahead. He deserved another inning but we have a ton of guys who need innings and it’s early in the summer.”
