New York MaPS vs. Scottsdale Spartans
Players Who Must Produce:
Norberto Almanza - Pitcher, Scottsdale Spartans
Almanza, a member of season 4 World Series winner Oklahoma City, won 15 games this season. Three of the 15 came against New York. And in those three games, he gave up 4 ER in 20 IP, while striking out 14. In the NLDS he threw seven innings of one-hit ball. If Almanza can contain New York's bats and win two starts for Scottsdale then the Spartans will overcome past failures.
