The Arlington Aces Recreational Baseball League had another early-season matchup as the Green Team faced the Red Team on June 28.

The Red Team got off to a fast start as they scored in the top of the first inning to give them a quick 1-0 lead at the end of the first. The Green Team answered right back as they shutout their opponent in the top of the second and then scored in the bottom of the inning to tie it up at 1-1.

The third inning changed everything as the Red Team could not be stopped, maxing out the five-run limit and bringing a commanding lead of 6-1. Over the next three innings they shut out the Green Team and held their five-run lead heading into the sixth inning. The Green Team pushed back with a run in the bottom of the sixth, but it wasn't enough as the Red Team scored once again and finished it off with a final score of 8-2.

"Honestly, my arm didn't feel good in the first couple of innings, but then I started warming up. Then I was able to start throwing strikes, strikeouts and finally putting together the outs. I love being able to enjoy the game and have fun, it's an awesome feeling," said Red Team starting pitcher, Taylor Hogue.

Hogue led the Red Team as he controlled the game from the mound, through five innings, as well as contributing from the plate. While pitching for over half the game, Hogue allowed only one run while adding on eight strikeouts. He also had a hit, one run, one RBI, a stolen base and a double while at the plate.

Daylin McDonald, Red Team third baseman, also contributed from the plate as well as making plays on the defensive end. He finished with two hits, one walk, two RBIs and one stolen base.

"We are hoping to limit our walks and errors, as well as bringing in some more pitchers so we're able to throw more strikes. We just have to score more. But, anyway, it's always fun coming out, playing with your friends and getting some strikeouts," said Green Team pitcher, Ryan Fredrickson.

Fredrickson led the Green Team in strikeouts as he tallied three over two innings of work on the mound. He also added on a hit, a walk, one RBI and two stolen bases from the plate.

Jordan Neville and Tristen Hayes also contributed from plate for the Green Team. Neville went two for four, had one run, three stolen bases and a double. Hayes had two hits out of three trips to the plate while producing a run, a stolen base and a double.
