AL Game 58

 

Burman's Health Foods    5

Quotations Restaurant    4

 

 

 

It was a perfect evening for baseball at the American League Field as two of the premier pitchers in the American league faced off  against each other. Anthony Martinelli for Quotations and Alex Burman for Burman's Health foods.

 

Both pitchers were dominating until the fourth when Alex Burman had some bad luck and gave up 3 unearned runs. Then in the bottom of the inning Burman's got cooking with consecutive doubles from Alex Burman and Peter Muavero. Then Jim Finnegan got an RBI single and randy cropper got a huge two run single.  In the end, Burman's got 4 runs in the inning.

 

In the 5th Peter Muavero pitched a scoreless inning and then Danny Crawford pitched the 6th allowing a run on a passed ball which tied the game 4-4.

 

In the bottom of the 6th Peter Muavero led off with a blistering line drive ground rule double. The next batter was Jimmy Finnegan who hit an 1-2 pitch up the middle for a walk off single. Finnegan leads Burman's in RBI's on the year with 15 runs batted in. Malcolm Reynolds had several great plays at third and Joey Kaneda had a few key plays as well.

 

Alex Burman, Finnegan and Muavero all lead Burman's with two hits. Burman's ends the season with a rematch of tonight's game  on the major league field at 6pm. Burman's is now 5-4-3
