The A's roared back from a 2 games-to-none deficit against a strong McKay Club to take the quarterfinal round of the 2004 YBL playoffs. Rob Celata shut down the Bulldogs on 4 hits in Game 3 as Greg Lovely's double scored Peter Moores with the winning run in the bottom of the 8th inning for a 3-2 win. Chris Malloy gunned down the potential tying run in the top of the 8th on a base hit to right, as Sean Wilshere withstood the collision and held on to the ball. Leo Corcoran handcuffed McKay on 5 hits in Game 4 to even the series with a 6-2 victory, walking 1 and whiffing 7. Sean Wilshere, Steve Sherman and Aidan Powers banged out 2 hits apiece to lead the offense. Mike Niland's single in the 1st plated 2 runs to set the tone of the game. In the rubber game, Aidan Powers fired a 5-hitter with 7 k's to earn the vicory 3-2. Run-scoring singles by Wilshere, Jimmy Schindler and Brian Powers in the 2nd inning provided the only runs needed. Chris Malloy again threw out the potential tying run in the bottom of the 6th inning on a fly to right.
