Green Team's Tom Newell swings and connects for a big hit up the middle against the Blue Team at Evans Field on Aug. 11.

The Blue Team took on the Green Team in the Arlington Aces Recreational Baseball League on Aug. 11.

After shutting down the Green Team in the first inning, the Blue Team got off to a good start as they strung a few hits together for a 2-0 lead early. Through the next two innings the Blue Team maintained their shutout while they kept their scoring pace with four more runs.

The Green Team showed a little life in the fourth inning as they managed to push one man around the bases for a single run. However, this wouldn't be enough as they couldn't capitalize on the momentum and lost by a score of 17-1 over seven innings.

"It was a nice surprise to pitch well through the whole game and it seemed like one of those games where everything worked. We're out here to have fun, but at the same time it's competitive, so it's nice to know that you're winning and getting out ahead of people," said Blue Team pitcher Trevor Milless.

Milless used his defense and pitches to control the game from beginning to end as he notched six strikeouts and only allowed one run in a complete game. He was also able to contribute from the plate with two hits, one run, three RBIs and a triple.

Bryce Klein ends the second inning with a strikeout for the Green Team as they take on the Blue Team at Evans Field on Aug. 11.

Johnnie Machado, Craig Monson and Patrick Ryan played a heavy role for the offense of the Blue Team. Machado finished with one hit, four runs, three stolen bases and a double. Monson went perfect at the plate, going four for four, with three runs, two RBIs, two stolen bases and a double. Ryan had the biggest night on the team as he had three hits, two runs, five RBIs, two stolen bases, a double and a triple.

"Having people show up and putting together a consistent team is the hardest part. I love baseball and I was in the Navy for 10 years so it's good to come back to play on this field where I used to play. It definitely feels nostalgic and makes me feel young again," said Green Team player Tom Newell.

Bryce Klein showed up early on for the Green Team as he had five strikeouts through the first four innings.

From the plate Jesse Machado and Tim Hoiosen gave the Green Team some life. Machado had a team-high two hits with one RBI and a stolen base. Hoiosen finished with one hit, one run and a double.

If you want to come out and support the Arlington Aces they play every Monday and Friday at Evans Field, Arlington, starting at 6:30 p.m.
