Green team's Matt Irving sprints to home on the hit from Jared Douglas, at Evans Field on June 29.

The Arlington Aces Baseball League is an 18 and Up league for anyone that wants to play some fun and competitive baseball. On Wednesday, June 29, the Green team took on the Blue team in a very one-sided matchup. The Green team came out scoring five runs in the first inning and never looked back as they kept a lead for the entire game. They finished over the Blue team with a final score of 17-8 over eight innings.

"We're just going to have fun. Most of us are just done playing baseball and we missed it. Our main goal is to just have fun and win games. I never thought I'd get the chance to play with my dad and some of these guys that have never played before. It's great to be able to play with some guys that you never thought you'd play with," said Jordan Neville, Green team player.

Wes Leow contributed heavily for the Green team as he started them off pitching a shutout over the first four innings. He also contributed at the plate with two hits, and a game-high four RBIs. Joe D'Amelio took the mound as the closer, racking up five strikeouts over the last three innings. Finally, Jordan Neville and Mitch Davis put together a great offensive performance as they added on a total of eight runs and two RBIs.

The Blue team spread out their production over most of their team with the exception of two standout players, Trevor and Chase Milless. Trevor ended the game with three hits, two runs and two RBIs while Chase finished with one hit, one run and was able to produce key steals throughout the game.

"We made a lot of mistakes early defensively. We made some moves and I think it's one of those things where you kind of feed into your energy and everyone finds their groove. It just took us longer than it took them to get theirs. I noticed that if you're not feeding off that guy in front of you, or the guy behind you, then you have to be the guy to create that energy. I put that upon myself, running the base paths and getting into scoring position," said Chase Milless, Blue team player.

If you are interested in watching a game, they will be playing every Wednesday and Friday at 6:30 p.m., at Evans Field in Arlington.
