ML Game 43
Campbell's Boathouse Restaurant 7
Patriot Construction 5
Media, Pa - Campbell's Boathouse clinched 1st place and Home field advantage for the upcoming playoffs with a win over a tough Patriot squad. For the 3rd time in as many tries, the two teams played a tight contest, as Campbell's pulled out the 7-5 win.
Patriot came out swinging and put 3 runs up in the top of the 1st, highlighted by Nate Rodgers 2 run double.
Nick Corado paced Campbell's offense with 2 hits, including a 2 run double of his own in the bottom of the 1st, to pull Campbell's to within a run.
Patriot's Kyle Broadhurst provided the sellout crowd with a Sports Center worthy highlight, robbing Campbell's Sam Holefelder of what would have been a double. Broadhurst read the hit off the bat and made a running grab of the sizzling line drive for the web gem in Left.
Campbell's broke the tie of the close contest in the 5th, as Joe Adcock's heads up stolen base of home proved to be the eventual game winner.
Evan Fooks had his best relief appearance of the season, striking out 7 straight batters in the 4th, 5th and 6th innings. He'd retire 8 of his 9 outs on K's.
