Game 1 was a gem as both pitchers pitched great going the distance. Zael Honora picked up the win by not allowing a run. He gave up just three hits and struck out eleven. He improved his record to 7-1 on the year.

Ricardo Hernandez was the tough luck loser for Barcelona in Game 1. He tossed a complete game giving up just one unearned run on four hits. He struck out fifteen on the day dropping to 8-2.

The lone run came in the top of the seventh inning for Sant Boi. It all started when William Domero started the inning off with a walk. On a failed bunt attempt, Domero advanced to second on a throwing error by Barcelona pitcher Hernandez. He would advance to third on a ground out and then score when Stefano Pistocchi singled up the middle to drive him home.

Game 2 had a little bit more offense, but the result was the same as Sant Boi came out on top again.

Daniel Matias pitched a great game going the distance allowing just two runs on nine hits. He walked two and struck out two to earn the victory improving his record on the year to 8-3.
