The sophomore allowed zero hits, two walks, one run scored, and recorded two strikeouts.

Bellelo went 7-13 with four runs scored and two RBI’s in the four game series against Central Christian. Meanwhile, Cazayoux went 7-14 with four runs scored and seven RBI’s, and currently holds a four game hit streak.
