The pitching staff also performed well as each starter pitched at least 4 innings, with three starters completing 6 innings or more: Tony Aufieri 6 innings, Simon Scales 6.67 innings and Daniel Zamora 7 innings.
Highlights included a victory against Cedar Ridge (6-1) as Daniel Zamora pitched a complete game striking out 7. Three Eagles had doubles against the Raiders including Tanner Martinez, Brandon Rodi and Brandon White. In the Vista Ridge game, starting pitcher Tony Aufieri held the Rangers to 2 runs.
