Well sports fans the boys showed up to play tonight nabbing 13 runs on 29 hits and impressively notching 4 outs on the evening to up thier defensive game including thier first double play of the season. The White shirts brought home the W over the blues winning 13-0 and staying alive to fight another day.
The away team started up first and couldn't get much going to start out. Our boys started out with a knock from Brayden the Basher to get us moving. Kasey moved it along with a nice hit to put 2 runners on. William the Warrior smashed another that scored a run and put runners on 1st and 2nd. Hank hit one hard up the middle forcing a fielders choice to nab William at 2nd but the socre was 1-0.
The 2nd inning started with a huge hit from the away team followed up by 2 K's. Another 2 hits loaded the bases but a nice unassisted 1-5 rundown by Brayden to third base ended the inning. The second started out slow with 2 quick outs but Brayden got us moving again hitting safely to land at first. Liam launched one through the infeild and Kasey connected to load up the bases. William once again whopped one into the field to score a run making the score 2-0.
The 3rd inning started out very lucky for us with 3 back to back K's. We came back to plate ready to make some middle inning difference. Hunter smacked one out and Tyler reached on his hit and than Jake followed suit by making good contact and loading up the bases. Brayden bonked one to score another run and Kasey, William, and Hank all drove nicely hit balls to score 3 more. Hunter came back around and connected again to score the 5th and final run. The score was now a much safer 7-0.
The 4th inning brought some defensive heroics. After a runner got on first and a K William caught a pop fly at pitcher and threw to Brayden at first for a double fly. The bottom of the 4th saw 2 quick outs again but a nice rally continue with Brayden, Liam, and Kasey "stay on the bag" killer loading the bases. William, Hank and Hunter all had solid hits to score 3 more runs. With the score 10-0 we headed to the 5th.
A couple of strikeouts and a force out play at first by Hank prevented anyone from reaching. The bottom of the 5th arrived and the boys hitting consistency continued. Brayden, Liam and Kasey all connected to load it up again and William, Hank the Tank, and Hunter all drove in runs to make it 13-0.
The top of the 6th came the blues started with a hit but a couple of K's ended the inning and secured the victory.
It was a nice win and a solid performance by all.
Hank got a gameball for his 4-5 and 4 RBI night with a defensive out.
Tyler got a gameball for continuing to make contact all night and engage in epic rundowns at 1st.
We did enough to make it back into finals consideration and we look ahead to next Tuesday and a chance to redeem ourselves.
