Barons Pick Up First Home Win of the Season

Updated: June 26, 2017

The Academy Barons picked up their first win in the season after defeating the Conejo Oaks for the second straight game by a score of 10-5.

Tyler Witt got the nod on the hill to start the game for the Barons and had a good performance. Witt pitched 4.67 innings; allowing six hits, three hits and struck out two batters. Tyshaun Chapman followed Witt on the mound and was actually given the win for the game. Chapman pitched 4.3 innings only allowing four hits, two runs and fanned three Oaks’ batters. Aaron Soto was the final pitcher for the Barons and pitched only one inning and struck out one batter.

The Bats came alive in a big way for the Barons in Thursday’s action. For the second straight game the Barons tallied ten hits and received big performances from multiple people. Solomon Bates, who normally pitches for the Barons, started as the DH against the Oaks and went 4-4 with one RBI. However, it was Bruce Martin who delivered the biggest performance for the Barons going 2-3, 7 RBIs and crushed a grand slam in the 5th inning.

The Barons have the day off Friday but will have a double header against the Arroyo Seco Saints at home starting at 12 p.m.
