Wow! That was some game! The Orioles could not muster a big inning at the plate. The As showed plenty of defensive skill. The Orioles defense was stingy, however the As mighty bats in the 4th five run ruled the Os. The As Brendan had 5 put outs in the game and big catch in the 4th inning.

First Inning
The As slugger put 5 balls into play to score the first run of the game. The Os counted with a triple by Flynn, then three singles, a sacrifice by Codie for the second and final run of the inning.

Second Inning
The As Ryans had a lead-off single. The base running was halted by the Os defense as Jenna made a play at second, Brendans outfield bound line drive was snared in the air by Quin at 3rd base for an out and then Jenna got the final out at 2nd base.
For the Os, a strike out and the As second baseman throwing out the runner at first started the inning with two outs. Two singles and then an outfield single plated a run.

Third Inning
Aiden lead off with a single. Hayden then hit a laser shot down the first base line that Matt snagged in the air. Matt quickly scampered to first to double off the runner. After two more singles by Ben HR and Brady, Flynn of the Os got the final out at third. In the bottom of the frame, the Os put 6 balls into play, however the As defense got a fielders choice out at second. With the bases loaded, the pitcher to third combo pull off a 1-5 force out to end the inning.

Fourth Inning
The 5-1 lead for the Orioles was short lived the As bats showed their power. Five of the next six As reached first and then Aidens double closed the frame with a 5 run fourth to take the lead 6-5.

Fifth Inning

The Os fifth only saw 4 batters. The third batter was Matt who hit a home run to close the margin to 8-7.

Sixth Inning
In the sixth, the As did not score, so the Os had a chance.
Singles by Jakob and Sebastian lead off the inning. Nico hit the ball to third resulting in a force out by the As Aiden. Flynn loaded the bases with a one out single. Quin stroked a ball to the outfield for a double, plating two runs, however, the runner from second was ruled that he did not cross the line. The runners were sent back and with bases loaded, Jakey V (The Brick) delivered a grounder to the infield to score the game winning run.
