The Gila Ridge Hawks are putting the Gila Valley on notice; they're making a run for the playoffs. They've made it a habit of dominating area opponents this season and their match-up with the Yuma Criminals was no different.
Starting pitcher Emilio Griego led the way for the Hawks defense, by throwing a complete game and allowing just one run. The Gila Ridge bats were also clicking. Irving Lopez earned the first RBI of the game with his single bringing home Bobby Mena from second base. It would be Marco Jaime that would steal the show, earning three hits and scoring five RBI's to lead the Gila Ridge offense.
The 13 to 1 win gives the Hawks a 17-3 overall record with only three games left for them in regular season play.
