AL Game 8
Emergency Care 3
In their 3rd game of the young American League season, Axis Financial tangled with Emergency Care to capture a 13-3 win in a well-played contest.
Behind excellent pitching and fielding the two teams played to a 3-3 draw after 2 full innings. Pitching for Axis Financial, Keith Kirk struck out batters and made key defensive plays in his first start at pitcher. In the bottom of the 3rd Axis Financial opened up the game with impressive batting by Sean Heidig, Brian Berry and John Owens. John Owens won the game ball by a loud vote of the players for his contribution to our pitching, catching and hitting (3 doubles and a single). Excellent base running by Johnny McNichol and his team mates made for some exciting moments at home plate.
AJ Lombardozzi for Emergency Care pitched 3 full innings to be relieved by Timmy Aman. Emergency Care had some long balls to the outfield to include shots by Eric Poynton and Zachary Lynch.
These teams meet again this Friday.
