Starting with a strong series against the East L.A. Dodgers, the Angelenos took the series winning three of the four games. They dominated the series offensively scoring 38 runs and only allowing 14. The week was highlighted by strong performances at the plate by Scott Hong of Occidental College who led the team with a walk off single in the opening day victory.

The next game featured a grand slam home run by Hoover High School and Glendale College alumnus Sako Chapjian, currently a junior at CSU Dominguez Hills.

The Angelenos continued their timely hits against the Sabers winning 11-1. They also allowed on one run on two hits with seven total pitchers used.

They finished the week with a loss to the OC Blacksox, and will return Tuesday at Stengel Field at 6:30 p.m.
