first inning against the Blue team at Evans Field in Arlington on Aug. 10.

"We were missing a lot of pitches up in the zone. They took advantage of that and that takes the ball out of our hands. Defensive stuff again and throwing the ball too many times or to the wrong spot to force outs. We'll start plugging different guys in different spots. At this point you have to look at it and realize the real reason why we're out here. That's just to come out here, play and have fun. That's really what it's all about when it comes down to it," said Chase Milless, Blue team catcher.

The Blue team had a rough outing on both sides of the ball. However, Tre Mendenhall put together a good performance on the mound with six strikeouts over four innings. Also, Chase Milless and Patrick Bliss did their part at the plate by combining for four hits, The Blue team ended with a total of seven hits, and two stolen bases.
