AL Game 36


Horizon Services 12
Sposato Homes 11

In a great MLL AL classic, Horizon held off Sposato Homes for a 12-11 win. Sposato jumped off to a 5-0 lead but Horizon came back behind a 5 run 3rd inning highlighted by a Danny Crossan 2 run single. Sposato scored 2 in the top of the 4th to regain the lead 7-5. Nick Steel then brought Horizon closer with a solo home run over the left center field fence. Jamaal Williams then brought home Ryan Tolentino in the bottom of the 4th to tie it up 7-7. Evan Perks then had a clutch hit in the top of the 5th to give Sposato a 8-7 lead. Bryan Dewar then hit a bases loaded double to score 3 and then Horizon tacked on 2 more to take a 12-8 lead heading to the 6th. Danny Crossan got the 1st two hitters out to lead off the 6th. Sposato was far from done though. 5 straight hits scored 3 for Sposato. With the tie run on 3rd, Crossan got the strikeout to end the game.

Horizon was led with 2 hits each from Connor Boyd and Ryan Tolentino as well as great pitching from Dennis Harrsch and Danny Crossan. Sposato was led by Zak Summy, Zachary Schlecht and Andrew Sposato at the plate as well as fantastic pitching from Russell Smith and Tommy Bradley.
