Guam - The Agana Heights King Car Chiefs(4-0) and Yona Redhawks(1-3) faced off in Tuesday Night Latte Amateur action at Okkodo Field. Yona Redhawks feature a young team of up and coming high school and Big League players and the AH King Car Chiefs bring back many of their players from the inaugural Fall Amateur League in which they finished 4th out of 18 teams.
Both teams started off slow with Chiefs starter Jeff Cruz and Redhawk's starter southpaw Mark Parks locked in a pitchers duel. The Chiefs would break through in the bottom of the 3rd with lead off hitter Paul Untalan Jr line drive to right slipping under a diving McCarley Masaharu in right field. Untalan would hustle around for a triple and score on a rbi ground out by Jeremy McDonald to give the Chiefs a 1-0 lead through 3 innings.
The Redhawks would rally in the 4th inning with lead off hitter Darren Pablo reaching on an error and trying to advance to third base on a single, however a perfect throw by Chiefs first baseman Gerry Paulino nailed him at third to kill the rally. The Chiefs would add some insurance runs in the 5th inning scoring four runs taking advantage of Redhawk errors and singles by Gerry Paulino, Vic Villagomez and Troy Simbahan. Chiefs starter Jeff Cruz would quietly shut down the Redhawks offense allowing six hits and striking out four in six quality innings. Shane McDonald would come in to pitch the 7th inning and hold onto the 5-0 win for the Chiefs. Redhawks starter Mark Parks went six innings, allowing only two earned runs in the loss. Jeremy McDonald goes 1-2 with a run, rbi and double to pace the Chiefs and McCarley Masaharu goes 2-3 in the loss for the Redhawks. The Chiefs stay undefeated and improve to 4-0 and the Redhawks fall to 1-3.
