The LBLL Minor Angels got their first win of the season by besting the Dodgers 9-4 on Tuesday evening. Both teams now have one win under their belt and that tiny taste of Victory is just the motivation they need as they make their way through the infant stage of the season. The win rested heavily on some great bat work by the entire Angel Team which proved too much for a very talented Dodger infield. Angels pitcher Jacob Agaiby went the distance in great form while striking out 9 Dodger batters. Coach Lohman of the Dodgers was quoted as saying “ the kid was throwing smoke out there and we left way too many ducks on the pond in the first two innings to overcome a solid and well coached Angel team”. Dodger Pitcher Kirk Nakkasian got his first taste of the mound along with the first strikeout of his career. An overjoyed Nakkasian was quoted as saying “ I got my first strikeout!”. This was the first of a four game series between these two teams with the next meeting taking place Saturday at 1PM. “We have made the adjustments we feel will bring us to victory at our next meeting” said Lohman. “It’s all about doing what we need to do to get us to the playoffs in June”.
Come out to the park this Saturday and watch what is sure to be a great game between these two teams.

A “Minors” battle took place on the fields of Lunada Bay yesterday as the Mariners got their first win of the season overtaking a young Dodger team 10 to 7.
The Mariners went to work early taking a strong lead in the first inning with some heavy bat work by the top of their order. Dodgers lead off hitter, Luke Marshall did his job by consistently getting on base but unfortunately the Dodger bats
left too many ducks on the pond to catch that Mariner early lead. Dodger manager Josh Lohman was quoted as saying” The Mariners have a very well coached group of boys and we just didn’t bring our A game today. We look forward to playing them again.”
Coach Romine of the Mariners was excited to win their first game of the season and had this to say; “Fun first game!”
The Dodgers took their second loss of the season but Dodgers Coach Matt Marshall is not discouraged. “It’s a long season and we have a lot of games to go. We know what we need to do to get some W’s and our focus will be strong moving forward.”
It may have been a cloudy day out there today but the Dodger coaching staff was quoted as saying, “the future looks bright as far as we’re concerned”…
Next up the Dodgers will be playing host to the Giants this Saturday at 9AM followed by The Mariners visiting the Angels at 1PM.
