A's (Quinn Construction)   16

Rockies (Gregory Hillyard D.M.D.)  10

 

 

The A's pulled out a tough win against the Rockies in a game that started on Friday and ended on Sunday. The Rockies held a 6-4 lead on Friday when the skies broke open and the game was stopped due to rain. The Rockies scored another one to up their lead to 7-4 when Evan Fooks put the brakes on the Rockies offense. The A's bats brought them back to take a 9-7 lead. A clutch 2 run single by Isaac Golub gave the A's the lead. The Rockies weren't done though as Nathan Furman and Dylan Bittle both came through with 2 out RBI's. The A's took the lead again when Jamaal Williams took one for the team with the bases loaded. The Rockies led off the 5th with back to back walks. Fooks reached his pitch count and was replaced by Jeffrey Lunger. Lunger then struck out the next 3 batters to close the door in the 5th. The A's broke the game open with a 6 run 6th highlighted by a bases loaded double by Zak Summy that cleared the bases. Lunger was tough again in the 6th and was helped out by solid defense by the 8 year old duo of Isaac Golub and Aidan Carroll.

Tommy Bradley and Luke Bauwens pitched well for the Rockies while Bittle and Furman led them at the plate.
