Rock Hounds Win Solano Invitational

July 31, 2017

 

   The Rockville Rock Hounds finished their season on a very high note tonight. After a long inaugural season in the California Collegiate League, where they took third in the toughest division, the Hounds won the Solano Invitational Collegiate Tournament. The Hounds, who won 4 of their final 5 games this summer, defeated the Fairfield Indians 8-2 in the championship game.

 

   In the semi-final rounds, Fairfield defeated NBO Baseball 11-8, in an old fashion see-saw battle. The Rock Hounds, who earned the #1 seed through the narrowest of margins, defeated the Solano Mudcats 10-0 in their semi-final contest. A game that saw Rockville starter Carson Haws strikeout 13 Mudcats batters, a Solano Invitational record. Willy Homza, the tournament MVP, homered in the contest. He finished the game 2x3 with 4 RBI as well. 

  

   In the Championship game, Rylan Haney pitched four innings to get the win, allowing 2 runs. Kirby Broadbent hurled the final three frames, leaving the Indians scoreless, to get the save. Jack Pridy, Mickey Nunes, and Brandt Frazier each collected 2 hits, with Frazier driving in a season high 4 runs. Homza finsihed the tournament hitting .350, slugging .600 and driving in 6 runs, with a home run and 2 doubles, earning the MVP honors.
