Las Vegas Rattlers 5, Montebello Angels 2

Submitted by Michael Strader, Rattlers’ manager

The Las Vegas Rattlers came together to win Back-to-Back Kick Off Classic Championships.   All aspects of the game shined this week, led by amazing pitching performances from Dan Clemens, Greg Shepard, and Tim DeGrasse, who notched two wins including a complete game in the Championship.  Defense and hitting got hot as the tournament rolled on, concluded by a 2-run home run in the eighth inning by Kim Fuerniss to cement the trophy.

The guys played their tails off, fought through the pain, and stayed focused against some amazing teams from across the country.  We may be getting older, but winning never gets old!  Congrats to all the players who contributed to the back-to-back trophies!
