NL Playoff Game 2
Red Sox 13
Anyone not coming up to the complex is missing the future of MLL. The Sox and Yanx had their game suspended due to darkness 13-13. It needs to be finished on Thursday night. The American league field is available to finish it out. The Sox were up HUGE in the top of the six, but the evil empire (Yankees) kept fighting. With timely hitting from everyone in the lineup, they scored the tying run by inches.
From the Yankee's manager after the game finished...
A full team effort was put forth from the Yankees in this suspended game from Tuesday night. After allowing 17 walks thru the first 5 innings the Yankees came from 7 down in the bottom of the 6th inning to force an extra inning on Thursday night. The Yankees held the Red Sox scoreless in the top of the 7th and then Louis Silvestri drove in Nathan Sutch for the winning run with two outs and two strikes. There was a play at the plate but Nathan Sutch scored just ahead of the throw!
Nate Copus also had some key hits late in the game and Aaron Brown continued to hit the cover off the ball. Casey Calloway drove in the 2 runs needed to tie the game on tues with a clutch 2 out double.
Jared Brower pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings to close out the game and collect the win and only walked one batter.
Devon Turner also made
a game saving catch in the top of the 6th inning in leftfield. Danny Maguire
threw out a base stealer at second base early in the game and also made a diving
tag on a play at the plate for a key out.
Words from our Fearless Commissioner:
I can't give a detailed report because I was immersed behind the plate, instead of daydreaming in the field. The evil empire finally pulled out a victory over the Red Sox, moving them into a show down with the top dog on Saturday at 9:00am. Up the hill was another barn burner. The Cubs and Twins refused to give up. Even after getting smacked in the lip with a grounder up the middle, Tough as nails, Jack McCarthy, found the will to bat the following inning. The Cubs ended up winning with Panzo's lucky shorts.
