Calgary Advances, Anchorage Falls

The Calgary Inferno have put down the Anchorage Aces in a surprising upset, after taking their AEL Elimination Round series 3-1.

A total of 21 games later, he’s hit safely in each game and averaged .365 in that period, with 31 hits, eight for extra bases, along with 12 runs and 14 RBIs.
