Braves take 1-0 lead in BBL champ. series

by Dave Delgado

Guam - Last year's BBL baseball champs, the Moylan's ODC Braves, waited until the 9th inning to turn things around against the AK Islanders. The Braves came from behind to take Game 1 (4-3) after trailing in the bottom of the 9th 3-2. With 1 away the Braves got into a groove at the plate behind a couple of hits to tie the game up at 3.

With the bases loaded Dale Alvarez stepped to the plate just looking to make contact to bring home the potential game-winning run. Alvarez waited and waited for the right pitch and was eventually walked scoring the game-winning run to give the Braves the 4-3 win.

Tony Yatar crossed the plate for the defending champs to make it official and will now head into Game 2 tomorrow night up 1-0 in the best of 7 game series.
