Brownsville Veterans' Villarreal Pitches Team To National Title Victory

Brownsville Veterans right-handed pitcher Freddy Villarreal started the deciding game for his Houston Banditos in the Perfect Game 17-under World Series, and came away with the win and the championship trophy.

The Chargers' soon-to-be-junior let up 3 runs, 2 earned, in the 1st inning, but settled in to pitch 5 more scoreless frames and earn the win in a 10-4 victory over the defending champion EvoShield Canes out of Fredericksburg, VA.

Villarreal's pitching coach with the Banditos? None other than former Houston Astros ace Shane Reynolds.
