NL Playoff Game 7

 

A's (Quinn Construction)    12

Red Sox (Witch Bistro)    10

 

 

The A's overcame an early 8-0 deficit to rally and top the Sox.  The game ended taking 2 days to complete as the skies opened up on the teams not once but twice on Sunday.  It was stopped on Sunday after 2 innings with the Sox up 8-3.  The A's wasted no time coming back on Monday behind a 5 run 3rd inning highlighted by big RBI hits by Zak Summy, Jeffrey Lunger and Giovanni Antonelli.  The Sox came back with 2 runs of their own off a big Max Brown double and take a 10-8 lead.  It stayed that way until the bottom of the 5th when Evan Fooks had a big RBI double to make it 10-9.  Zak Summy followed with a 2 RBI hit to put the A's back on top.  Giovanni Antonelli knocked in an insurance run to make it 12-10 in favor of the A's. 
 
The Sox tried to rally in the 6th after getting a leadoff walk.  After a ground out, the A's had to change pitchers and went to Aidan Carroll.  He was helped out by a great defensive play by Dylan White at 3rd base as he caught a screaming line drive.  After a walk, Carroll settled down and struck out the final Sox batter to end the game.
 
Jeffrey Lunger was strong in relief for the A's only allowing 2 runs in 3+ innings.  The Red Sox got very good pitching from Josh Gordon and Bradley Dinger.  Max Brown led the Sox at the plate with 3 hits.
 
The A's were led by the hitting of Nick Martini, Carroll, Fooks, Antonelli and Summy with 3 hits each.
