NL Game 38
Chimney Cricket Marlins 11
Wilson Safe Yankees 6
Marlins pulled out a
very close game against the Yankees last night 11-6 in cold windy conditions.
Marlins had the big bats rolling early with clutch hits by Ben Wolters, Kyle
Virbitsky, Tyler Lashley and Calvin Samson. A big pitching performance was put
on by Nicky Ladd who held the potent Yankees line up to 3 runs over 3 innings.
Kyle Virbitsky came on to pitch 2 stellar innings but was almost undone by an
uncharacteristic lapse in fundamentals by the Marlins. The Marlins settled down
and had the game closed out by Tyler Lashley who closed the door on any comeback
Nick Ladd - 3 inning 45 pitches
Kyle Virbitsky - 2 innings 29 pitches
Tyler Lashley - 1 inning 14 pitches
