AL Game 45
Burman's Health Foods 8
Patriot Construction 7
On a very unusually chilly late May evening at the American Field it was Burman's Health Foods winning a 8-7 contest vs. Patriot Construction.
Winning Pitcher Julian Bonsall-Shepard went 4 innings striking out 3 hitters and allowing just 1 earned run. Danny Crawford sealed the win with his 3rd save of the year by hurling the last 2 innings striking out 5 hitters. Crawford also collected a single and an RBI double.
Burman's was led offensively by Alex Burman who hit a towering homerun over the right center field. Fence in the 3rd. He also scored 3 times and walked twice. Burman also robbed 4 hitter Tyler Lashley of a double in the 5th with a nifty play at first base on a hard hit liner down the line. Jim Finnegan, Malcolm Reynolds, Joe Kaneda all had hits for Burmans.
Burmans is now 4-4-3 on the year.
Patriots defense was excellent with great plays by will hotham, connor daly and luke ciminera all making stellar plays.
