ML Playoff Game 2
In a playoff battle between very two very evenly matched teams, Gardner/Fox was able to battle back and over come a tremendous pitching performance from Moppert Brothers’ Brian Vendetta to win 6-5 in 7-innings. Brian pitched 6 very strong innings racking up 13 strikeouts against only one walk. Clutch hits for Mopperts were delivered by David Splain, 2-3 1-run 2-rbi, Kevin Bosco, Brian Vendetta and Ian McLarney.
The game began with Gardner/Fox jumping out to an early lead behind Jake Enterlin’s (1-2, 1-run 2-rbi) 2 run home run in the 1st and Eric McGough’s (1-1, 3-runs 1-rbi) solo shot in the 3rd. Vendetta quickly settled down and held GF to only 2 runs through the next 4 innings. The momentum turn back to GF in 6th and 7th and they were able to push one run across in each frame to win in the bottom of the 7th.
