The offense was led by Kevin Hernandez (3-3, 2 RBI), Tony Rugova (3-4, 2 Runs, 2 RBI), (Xavier Ruiz 2-3, 3 Runs, 2 SB) and Eric Solero (2-3, RBI). Nino Giardino (4 RBI) hit a mammoth 3-run homerun, deep over the right-center field bleachers, clearing the 233 sign at Naclerio Field. The Bandits went on to win by the score of 12-3.

Manager Dom Caggiano said, “The only reason for fall ball is player improvement, working on their individual weaknesses. There is always work to be done, so we’re doing it.”
