Andrew Pottter was able to hold the Quartz Hill Rebels to 3 hits while striking out 7 and only walking one in route to his 2nd victory of the season.
A timely defensive double play by the SS Alpeza and 2B Jason Potter in the 6th inning helped secure the shutout and another complete game for Potter.
The Lion offense was finally able to get to the Rebel pitcher in the bottom of the seventh. A lead off single by Timms, his second hit of the game, followed by a booming double in the left corner by Ramirez provoked the rebel coach to intentionally walked Casselman to set up a force situation at home. That set the table for Vaiz who came through with a deep fly to left center that fell untouched for a single.
Once again, as it seems to be the theme for the Eastside Lions of late, this game could have gone either way, both teams played well.
