AL Game 8

 

Brooks, Bradley & Kenney   10

William Young Carpentry   7

 

In a Sunday make-up game between these teams, BBK avenged an earlier loss to young with a 10-7 victory. Tommy Higgins started the game and threw three innings of quality ball before turning the mound over to Jack Keffer, making his pitching return after 2 weeks on pitching DL for early season elbow-itis. Keffer was up to the task, as he shut down the Young offense over three shut-out innings. Team BBK was led by the hitting of Michael Solomon (triple, 2 runs), Sean Doyle (3 hits), and Jack Doyle (2 runs). Team Young threw Jack Ribble, who was bringing gas for several innings, relieved by Nick Young and Brian Snow. Snow was almost unstoppable at the plate as he cracked several deep doubles. Team Young also had fine hitting from lead off batter Jason McLarney. In the end, it was Keffer’s pitching and Brooks Bradley & Kenney’s overall fine defense, highlighted by catcher Tommy Higgin’s snap throw to first to pick off an unsuspecting Young runner, that led BBK to victory.
