The Albuquerque Baseball Academy complete a three-game sweep of Strike Zone Baseball after winning two games Wednesday at the University of New Mexico's Lobo Field.

ABA defeated the Farmington-area team 7-4 and 7-5. Despite the losses, Strike Zone took away positives from the three-game series that began June 11 with one game at Ricketts Park. The first game ended in a 2-1 win for ABA.

"It was really productive. Playing a three-game series against a stacked team helped us find things that we need to fix," said Jacy Cave, who pitched three innings to start Game 1 for Strike Zone. "They are our best competition in the state, and it will help a ton heading into the city tournament and Connie Mack World Series."

Ian Doughty started Game 2 for Strike Zone.

"I definitely felt like I kept them off-balanced. They just had a lot of infield singles and Texas leaguers," Doughty said of ABA's hits in the game.

Strike Zone is back in action at 2 p.m. at Ricketts Park against the Rivercats.
