The bats came out to play early for both sides, SLO struck first with a run in the third to only have Ventura respond with a run of their own in the bottom half of the third inning.

Niko Pacheco, Jimmy Brakka and Harley Faye all had RBI's in the inning with Pacecho picking up two on a RBI single.

The Blues managed to get just eight base runners all game offensively. Harley Faye led the way at the plate, Faye finished the game 2-3 with two singles. No other SLO hitter had more than a hit in the game nor did another hitter reach base more than once in the game.
Game one of this Father's Day double header had all the makings of a classic pitchers dual as both sides got great outings from each of their arms. Ventura starting pitcher, Addison Pelupussey was the real story though. The right hander out of Ventura went complete game seven inning shutout, his first of the season. His offense picked him up on a huge two out two RBI single right back up the middle from left fielder Matt Waldren. Waldren came to the plate in the bottom of the fifth inning of a 0-0 ball game and delivered in a big way, Mogollon had the University of Tennessee Vols left fielder in a 1-2 count as Waldren sent the pitch right back where it came from, a base hit into centerfield plated two runs and gave Ventura just enough to help lead to their second shutout of the season. The Blues threatened in the seventh, but wound up leaving bases loaded to end the ball game. Pelupussey records the win, his first of the season as he improves to 1-1 on the year while Mogollon will pick up the loss for SLO he is now 0-1 for the year.
Ventura had eight hits for the game and had one player with a multi hit game. Derek Rodigo finished 2-3 with two singles and a run scored while Matt Waldren, who had the big hit finished 1-3 at the plate with the only two RBI's of the game. Addison Pelupussey was the real deal, he worked seven complete giving up just five hits, striking out six and allowing just two walks while going the distance for the Halos.
The San Luis Obispo Blues took down Conejo Oaks, 5-4, in CCL play Thursday afternoon at Cal Lutheran University.
The Blues were out hit nine to six for the game but timely hitting and runs at the right time helped lead to the one run victory. Conejo didn't make many mistakes in the game but when they did, SLO took advantage each time. The Blues capitalized on a big throwing error from Conejo in the sixth inning, helped lead to a three run sixth. They sent seven hitters to the plate, scored three runs on just one hit in the frame. This turned out to be huge as they were able to fend off a comeback from the Oaks as they scored one in the fifth and two more in the seventh but came up just a run short as Dan Beavers closed it out for the Blues in the ninth.
The Blues improved to 8-3 overall and 4-3 in CCL play. Conejo drops to 6-4 overall, 5-3 CCL.
Blues starting pitcher Brenden Nail, in his season debut worked four strong complete innings giving up just one run on three hits while also striking out three. The lefty was one of five pitchers used in the game for SLO. It was Dan Beavers working the final two innings, gave up just one hit, no runs, no walks and struck out two Oaks at the plate. Offensively, SLO had just six hits for the game, Garrett Dodd did manage to have two hits, he finished 2-4 for the game. Dodd also had three RBI's as well as Connor Newell drove in a run also, Newell finished 1-3 and also reached with a walk. Harley Faye accounted for two runs for SLO, the Blues scored a couple unearned runs on a sacrifice bunt chance that turned into a costly throwing error for Conejo.
Conejo got the scoring started as they struck first with a run in the bottom of the first inning. A lead off walk followed by a softly hit double off Nail had the oaks in business as their first run came off a wild pitch from Brendan Nail. The Blues responded right back in their top half of the second inning as they put two across in the inning. Seven hitters came to the plate as they scored two runs on two hits and the score remained 2-1 until the fifth. The blues went to the bullpen, Holden Nix faced three hitters before giving the ball to Korey Anderson in the fifth inning, also in his season debut for SLO. Conejo got one hit and scored their second run of the game in the inning. As they did in the second, the Blues responded back once again, after Conejo tied it, SLO put up a three spot in the game changing sixth inning. It was a perfectly placed bunt from Josh Ramirez that led to the throwing error from Oaks pitcher, Ryan Bill. Harley Faye and RJ Hassey scored what at the time proved to be the winning runs for SLO. The runs proved to be that much more important as Conejo threatened in the seventh scoring twice but coming up just short as Beavers worked the eighth and ninth innings to secure a one run tight ball game victory for the Blues.
Conejo had nine hits in the game while three Oaks had multi hit games at the plate. Kyle Sanchez finished 2-3 with a run and a walk, first baseman Eric Ramirez went 2-5 and two RBI's and maybe best day at the plate went to Conner Sheppard as the second baseman finished with three hits and 3-4 on the afternoon. Oaks reliever Logan Gillaspie worked the final two innings for Conejo, giving up just one hit, no runs, walked one and struck out two.

During this past season, the Blues were able to complete forty-seven double plays; meaning that ninety-four kids between the ages of three and twelve received the teddy bears.
Those gifts were passed out to children on Wednesday morning.
