“Life will always throw you curves, just keep fouling them off,” Elizondo said after the game, when asked about his hitting philosophy. “The right pitch will come, and when it does, be prepared to run the bases. Or trot around them, like I did today.”

Baran Elizondo hit a solo-shot off Holfast Green in the 1st, walked in the 4th, hit a solo-shot off Holfast Green in the 6th and hit a solo-shot off Holfast Green in the 8th.
