Solid pitching and defense leave PW 18U with a tie
By: Brian Werner |

Boca Raton, FL - Pitching ruled the day yet again at FAU.  Unfortunately, it ruled all the way around, as PW 18U tied Huskies 17's 2-2.  Prospect Wire 18U's Joey Hall (2011) looked good in his 2nd start of the summer, going 4 innings while only yielding 2 runs.  Jacob Elszasz (2010) tossed the final 3 innings to preserve the 2-2 tie. 

"Joey really rebounded well this time around," explained Head Coach Paul Giambalvo.  "His first time out last week, he was a little rusty, but today, he was solid.  After a bit of a rough start, he really settled down well.  I am happy with how he performed.  He showed good command down in the zone.  Good feel for his off speed stuff too."

When asked about Jacob, Paul remarked, "He was excellent today.  We didn't know much about him coming in here, but he really did a nice job.  He came right in throwing strikes, and finished strong.  All in all, we have been great on the mound so far.  The guys pound the zone and work ahead in counts.  They are really aggressive."

While Hall and Elszasz turned in good performances on the mound, Austin Hibbard (2011) and Marc Monroe (2010) provided the majority of the hitting.  Hibbard, an OF, picked up 2 hits on a day where hits were hard to come by.  Monroe added 2 hits as well, a double and single, while driving in one. 

"Hits were hard to come by," said Giambalvo.  "Monroe can really swing the bat.  Good stroke and he really drives the ball well.  Hibbard swung it well too.  He saw the ball well today."

PW 18U (1-0-1) takes the field for Game 3 tomorrow at 5:20 pm vs. the Bombers 17's.  A win would solidify PW's seeding going into the Championship Round on Sunday.
