â€œAs a team we played really well,” said Ralph Lopez, team manager. “We hit very well with every player contributing at the plate and we only had three strikeouts against. We executed twelve bunts and four squeeze plays. Defensively we had no errors, which is rare, but we still have things to work on. Our pitchers did well. I wish I could have used more pitchers since we have ten on the team. This is our second tournament win in a row, so hopefully we can keep it going.â€
