ML Game 39

Campbell's Boathouse Restaurant   4
Carman Insurance   3

 

 

Media, Pa - In yet another nail-biter, Campbell's Boathouse was able to squeak out yet another victory against Carman Insurance, sweeping the home and home series. Campbell's Bryan Paz would get the call to face Carman ace Nathan Furman, and would go the distance, spreading 6 hits and striking out 5 in the contest. Paz was helped once again by the solid play of Campbell's defense, which saw key plays by SS Vince 'Wizard of Oz' Caruso and 3rd baseman Aiden Carroll.
 

Furman was brilliant early, fighting back a fever, and listed as 'questionable' right up until game time. His 'Jordan-like' performance kept the top of the Campbell's line-up down for most of the contest.
 

Campbell's Joe Adcock would come through huge for Campbell's, with a clutch hit in the bottom of the 4th, knocking in a run, that would put Campbell's ahead. Carman came back in the top of the 5th to tie, and another game in the rivalry would have to be decided late.
 

Campbell's Caruso would drive in Paz in the 5th, on a line drive single, as Jack Higgins continued with a hot bat and added an insurance run with an RBI double of his own.
 

Campbell's notched their 12th victory with the Win, and looks ahead to Saturday morning, where they hope to beat up the pitching machine at MLL's annual Bat A Thon.
