AL Game 15
Children's Medical 10

The Children's Medical Associates team won their first game of the season putting together great pitching, solid defense, and timely hitting. They were led by Timmy Quinn who pitched 3 strong innings with 5 K's giving up only 2 hits. Dominic Nunag closed out the game pitching 3 innings with 6 K's giving up only 1 hit. The "Dominator" also contributed offensively with the bat- going 3 for 4 with 2 doubles and a triple. Brett Noble (coming off his 1st fence-clearing homerun of the season earlier in the week) had another strong offensive game going 3 for 4 with a single and 2 doubles.
For Patriot Construction, Dan Grandieri pitched 3 strong innings holding the CMA offense to 2 runs over the first 3 innings to keep the game close. Dan, an excellent base runner, tried to steal home in the 1st inning but got caught in a run down. In the 4th inning, John Flynn stole 3 bases including home on a close play to break up the shut-out.
