Stallings is on a tear. He is hitting .394 and has 10 hits in his last 16 plate appearances. Teammate Justin Acal is just as hot at the plate. He ripped a double and knocked in a run in the win. He is hitting .419 on the season with an on-base-percentage of .538. Kyle Schofield turned in some quality plate appearances and recorded a hit and knocked in two in the win.
Riley Grant (1-0) turned in a stellar performance on the mound for FCC. He pitched four innings and gave up just one hit while striking out seven batters. David Gingras came out of the bullpen to record the final nine outs, earning his first save of the season.
