NL Game 5

 

Children's Medical Red Sox    12

Patriot Construction    10

 

The Childrenís Medical Red Sox, for the second consecutive game, scored early and often, plating 9 runs in the first two innings, with home runs by Tyler Barton (2) and Rob Brown, and then narrowly held on to beat a determined Patriot Construction Twins team by a 12 Ė 10 score.

 

With the Red Sox comfortably ahead 11 Ė 1 in the 3rd inning, the Twins stormed back with six runs in their half, keyed by Max Reisserís bases clearing double.  Other key Twins hits in the inning were made by Kevin Mohollen (3 for 3, all doubles), Alex Kron (2 for 3), and Michael Maroney (2 for 3).

 

The second half of the game was dominated by the pitchers from both teams. Twins pitchers Chase Luffey, Mohollen, and Jack Ribble were dominating, allowing only one Red Sox run. Red Sox pitchers Dominic Nunag, Brown, and Daniel Grandieri were just as superb, tossing two scoreless innings.

 

Red Sox hitters were led by Barton (3 for 4, 4 RBIís) and Tom Platt (3 for 4, 2 RBIís).

 

Brown, pitching in his first National League game and stroking his first National League home run, earned the game ball.
