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.

morning, where they hope to beat up the pitching machine at MLL's annual Bat A
