ML Game 32

Baker Printing    8
Moppert Brothers    6
 


Baker Printing needed a late game rally to come back and defeat Moppert by a score of 8-6 on Friday night. Moppert jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the 1st inning thanks to an RBI hit by Evan Fooks. But in the bottom of the 1st Baker responded with 3 runs thanks to RBI's by Jake MacDonald, Zak Summy and Russell Smith. Then in the top of the 2nd, Moppert plated 4 more runs in what looked like it would be a slugfest with Danny Maguire and Evan Fooks driving in runs.

Russell Smith then settled in on the mound for Baker Printing and retired 10 of the next 12 batters he faced to hold Moppert scoreless the rest of the way. Baker trailed 6-4 at the bottom of the 5th inning but scored 3 runs including the game winning steal of home by Justin Ross from 3B.

Brendan Schramm, Ryan Duplicki, and Jeffrey Lunger each had 2 hits to lead the Baker attack. Luke Lombardi, Jake MacDonald, and Justin Ross also added a hit for Baker. Evan Fooks and Danny Maguire drove in 5 runs and both had 2 hits apiece.
