CL Game 26


Rays (Hill's Seafood)   6

Tigers (Dawn Graphic Design)   0



Media, PA (AP) - Mother Nature, fresh of her latest Earth Day, brought the sunshine and beautiful weather.  But more importantly, it was the Rays who brought their strongest effort of the season to date as they notched their second win of the season by defeating the Tigers, 6-0.  On the eve of this win, Ty Kokoska and Sam Elfenbein delivered their first ever stand-up comedy performance at the Media Elementary Variety Show.  Laughter abounded in front of that packed house on Friday night, but there was nothing funny about their play on Saturday as they both slammed key hits (Ty 2, Sam 1) to help pace the offensive.  Additionally, John "Tomahawk" Francis smoked an eye-high pitch to center for a double, as he continues to lead the Rays in extra base hits.

Defensively, all the Rays came to play as they flashed their leather early and often.  Oh yes, somewhere in heaven Ricardo Montalban was smiling. Dylan (always be) Batten was gritty behind the plate and newcomers like Corey Anderson and Liam Buckley continue to make great strides in the field.

Rays win. Rays win. Rays win.
