Hey Baseball Fans!
BRRR!!! We finally had our first "legit" Fall baseball game with temps in the 50s with a breeze. We also found ourselves a bit short-handed today and could only field a team of 8 (thank you Jake Mosca and Michael Caterino for filling in!).
All that meant though...was a shorter lineup for RED to work the bats and put runs on the board! Despite the cold...the RED bats were HOT today with a total of 15 hits on their way to a 10-8 victory!
Nate Hardy (3-4, 2 RBI, 2 runs)and Leo Orifice (3-4, 3 RBI) had 3 hits each and multiple RBIs, while Will Flatley (2-4, RBI, 2 runs), Ryland Schrader (2-4), Jake Mosca (2-3, run, RBI) and Mike Caterino (2-4, run) all had multi hit games. Charles Curtiss also contributed a hit with 2 runs and an RBI and Jack Airasian reached base 3 times and scored twice.
Will, Charles and Leo kept their composure on the mound striking out a combined 9 batters and battling through adversity to get out of innings. We also saw great glove work, especially in the outfield, from Nate and Jack - who both made huge catches off some of Watertown Black's big bats.
All in all - it ended up being one of our more fun games of the Fall. Great job, boys!!!
FYI - WE DO HAVE A GAME SCHEDULED FOR THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND (Sunday, 10/9 @ 3pm). Please let us know ASAP if your player WILL NOT be in Town.
I'll be away from the team next weekend. Thanks in advance to Zach Hardy for taking charge next week and to Mike Schrader for volunteering. No practice this week - so get out and throw the ball around if you can this week!
Four more games remain....let's keep having fun!
See you all soon!
