AL Game 2
In the chilly season opener for both teams, Quotations beat Burman's 6-1 to gain their first win of the season.
Quotations batters provided the run support early with a 2-run triple by Anthony Martinelli in the 1st, back-to-back doubles by Jack Norton and Justin Troilo and an RBI single by Ashton Raines in the 2nd, and a single and steal of home by Joe Volciak in the 3rd. This 6-run cushion proved to be all that the Quotations pitchers needed as the Quotations pitchers Ashton Raines (4 IP, 8 K, 1 ER) and Ben Aman (2 IP, 2 K, 0 ER) were able to hold the Burman's batters at bay allowing only one run throughout the 6 inning contest.
Despite giving up 6 runs, Burman's pitching duo of Ben Burman (3 IP, 9 K, 6 ER) and James Kantner (2 IP, 4 K, 0 ER) pitched well striking out 13 batters in 5 innings of work. Burman's scored their only run in the 4th inning after a lead-off walk to Colin McGuire and an RBI single by Peter Mauvero. Quotations catcher Joe Volciak threw out Mauvero trying to steal second (one of two runners caught stealing by Volciak) to prevent Burman's from putting together a big inning. Burman's mounted another threat in the 6th inning behind lead-off singles by McGuire and Kantner. Quotations reliever Aman worked out of the jam behind a nice defensive play by Chris Skahill to end the game.
Quotations: Raines (71), Aman (19)Burman's: Burman (76), Kantner (29)
