In what became a game heavy on scoring. The highlight of the game was the grand slam off the bat of Julian Gomez. The Eagles continued to battle back, keeping the game close until the end, but Josue Sanchez pitched 3 strong innings in relief to lock down the Estancia bats and secure a must win situation.

If the Saints can sweep Orange, then that will lock up the title! Go get ’em Saints!!
