With a light rain coming down all game, Team Hayes would come up short in the bottom of the 7th inning blowing a 4-1 lead in a 5-4 upset victory for East Cobb New England Expos. Shane Monsiello (2015; Knoxville, TN) was an effective starter for DeMarini Hayes, striking out 2 and allowing 7 hits, 1 BB and 3 earned runs in 6.1 innings. Mosiello has solid pitch approach, loose arm action and armside run on his fastball. In addition, Mosiello maintains arm speed on his changeup. Tennessee commit Tyler Halas (2015; West Chicago, IL) went 1-4 with a double; Satchel McElroy (2015; League City, TX) went 2-3 with 2 SB and 2 RBI.
"This was a good week for us and I couldn't be happier for my guys" said Coach Hayes. "We have been playing great baseball against really good teams and the boys have made a lot of scouts and college coaches take notice this past week. The interest in our team and players is huge right now and my phone is ringing non-stop" Hayes added.
