AL Game 36
Visual Communications 4
Mainstay and Visual battled in a hard fought game in which the outcome doesn't tell the whole story.
Mainstay led off with a run in the top of the 1st as Sean Bettenhausen led off with a single and scored on Corey Anderson's single. Visual tied the game in the bottom of the 1st as Brian MacCurtin laced a single, then stole 3 bases and scored. It could have been worse if not for Nicky Harrsch throwing a runner out at 2nd base trying to steal. That play turned the momentum Mainstay's way as they scored 2 in the 2nd when RJ Host got a hit and Liam Peel followed with a double off of the RF fence to score Host. Peel then scored on a hit from Tyler Allen.
They followed with 4 more in the 3rd on hits by David Cage, Luke Narbus, RJ Host and Zac Allen.
Visual fought back
with 3 in the 4th when Joshua Contrucci walked, Brian MacCurtin got a single and
Pat Theveny laced a triple to CF. Mainstay then put up a big inning to secure
the win. Singles by Jimmy Cage, Narbus, D. Cage and Host, along with a double by
Dylan White and a triple by Sean Bettenhausen did the damage. Great pitching by
Timmy Spiotta and Sammy Much kept the game close for Visual.
Bettenhausen – 55
White – 20
D. Cage – 26
Spiotta – 79
Much – 81
