ILS Baseball:

The ILS Baseball team snapped a two-game losing streak with a 5-3 win over the Somerset Silver Palms last Thursday. The pitching duo of Justin Quintana and Carlos Herrera was in action both on the bullpen and at bat.

Herrera allowed only 3 hits in 7 innings pitched, in addition to going 2 for 3 with a double. Quintana went 1 for 3 with a big triple that drove in an RBI.

Junior Elmir Perez had a big time double that pushed the lead early in the game.

The Royal Lions are now 3-3 and will need to stay on their heels in order to win their two tough games this week.
