Prudential Fox and Roach Braves    12

William Young Carpentry Red Sox    10

 

 

The Braves (Prudential, Fox and Roach) knocked the Red Sox (William Young Carpentry) from the ranks of the unbeaten with a hard fought 12-10 victory. The Braves got off to a quick start and were led by Anthony Martinelli with a single, double, and triple to go along with 5 RBI's. Chris Skahill contributed a tape measure double and also singled to knock in 3 runs. Jason McClarney broke through with a huge RBI single and Corey Hansen contributed a big hit as well. Defensively, the Braves were led by Joseph Kaneda with a circus catch in the outfield and stellar defense by Brian Dougherty and Spencer Hespenheide. The Red Sox battled back from a 5 run 5th innning deficit and were led by Brian Snow with a couple of big hits. They almost completed a miraculous comeback before Jason McClarney came in with the bases loaded, 2 outs in the bottom of the 6th to secure the save. Excellent pitching was provided by Anthony Martinelli and Corey Hansen who were up against a very tough Red Sox lineup. A great all around game by both teams.
