CL Game 29
Angels (Rose Tree Fire Company) 11
Diamondbacks (Cocco's Pizza) 2
The Rose Tree Fire Co Angels defeated the
Diamondbacks tonight 11-2 at Continental field. Despite the scoring, this was a
shining defensive show put on by both teams. Defensive highlights included:
An amazing first-inning play at the plate in which the D'backs' Nicholas Corritore threw a one-hop strike from center field to catcher Blayke Reid that denied the Angels' Michael Costello a home run. This play was worth considerable praise at the major league level, let alone the Continental League.
An instinctive catch and tag by Diamondbacks third baseman Luke Mersch, tagging Dylan Colvin out and ending the Angels' first inning of batting.
Damien Carr's quick field of a Kelton Brunner grounder to second and tag of the base to get the D'backs' Sam Davenport out in the fourth.
Alex Pak's line-drive catch off a Blayke Reid hit and flip to first baseman Dylan Colvin for the Angels' first double play in two seasons.
Kadin Matotek's game ending pop-out
catch at catcher to end the game in the sixth inning.
The Angels scored 11 runs off 20 hits for the night, led with 3 for 3 performances by Alex Pak (1 HR, 1 RBI, 3R), Joshua Emery (3R, 1 RBI), Michael Costello (1 3B, 2R, 2 RBI), Kadin Matotek (1 2B, 2R, 2 RBI) and Dylan Colvin (1 2B, 1R, 2 RBI). Rowan Degnan had a 2 for 2 night and Isabella Mingioni scored an impressive hit in the fourth inning.
The Diamondbacks scored two runs off 10 hits. Milan Hortua went 2 for 2 to lead the way, while Kelton Brunner (1R), Nicholas Corritore (1R), Joey Cornacchia (1 RBI), Jake McDowell (1 RBI), Sam Davenport, Lizzy Gibian, Dylan LeBuhn and Alex Turmel added a hit apiece. Perhaps the loudest cheers came for the D'backs' gritty Turmel, who connected for his first hit of the season in the 6th inning, evoking a standing ovation from both sides of the field.
