Coach Herman Nixon said the team's offense was again very strong.
"The top five batters Baxter, Nixon, Berry, Davalos, and Salaz again hit the ball very well," he said. "Damon Alvarado and Leo Lopez, who are newcomers to the team this year, really picked up their batting and hit the ball very well all weekend."
Williams is now 4-0 for the season so far with only four runs scored against them in four games.
"We have some good ball players who returned from last year and they haven't lost a beat from last year's 19 and 1 team," Nixon said.
Kohl Nixon is 2-0 pitching and has recorded 30 strikeouts in two starts and one inning of relief with an ERA of .000.
Nixon said Team No. 1's offense has overwhelmed their competition.
"The top five batters on this team are all hitting over .800 for the season," Nixon said. "We also had three players hit homeruns this weekend with Berry, Nixon and Daniel Solberg all hitting solo homeruns."
