Andrew Frank relieved Dewsnap and pitched the 7th and 8th innings, striking out 4 and keeping the score at 3-2. Drew Greenlee closed out the game, striking out one, giving up 2 hits and 1 unearned run.
Game 2 was all about Tylor Megill, who came out to pitch, and pitch he did! Jake Pulcheon was looking forward to the challenge of facing his former team mate, but struck out looking on an outside curve ball his first at bat, and battled his second at bat seeing 7 pitches and a full count, but failed to check his swing on a breaking ball in the dirt. "We never face 94 mph pitching so we can't get down on ourselves for striking out, he's a really good pitcher and he got me today, I wish I could face him every weekend." says Jake. Megill threw 44 pitches through 3 no-hit innings.
The score was 0-0 through the top of the 4th inning. Darren Preece pitched 3 scoreless innings, giving up only 3 hits, then after getting two quick outs in the bottom of the 4th, walked the bases loaded. Andrew Frank came in and closed out the 4th inning after allowing one run, belonging to Preece, to score on a BB.
In the top of the sixth inning Cole Bacon reached on a hbp, and quickly got himself in scoring position when he reached second on a sb. Jake Pulcheon hit a line-drive double into RCF to score Bacon and tie up the score. That would turn out to be So Cal Premier's only run in the game.
In the bottom of the 6th inning, a fly ball single to shallow right field scored the go ahead run, followed by a line-drive triple to RCF to score 3 more, and an error to score the last and final run.
Their was hope in the top of the 7th inning when Chase Cisco and Kyle Faret both singled, but Premier hitters couldn't rally up any runs, so this brought the grand total of hits in the game to 3 for the So Cal Premier offense, and the final score of the game to 6-1 Outlaws.
