GIANTS WIN! GIANTS WIN!
Hey Now GIANTS Fans...hope you all enjoyed the exciting game last night. Jake Mosca was eagerly awaiting the recap to hear how his team did...so I thought it would be a good opporunity to recap last night's effort!
Following a 3 game losing streak, the Giants took the field undermanned with only 8 players (including last minute addition Jack Clifford) against a tough Mets lineup. We got a run in the top of the first inning as Basile knocked a solid single scoring Leo. Will Flatley showed toughness on the mound after facing the tough top of the order in the first. Trailing 4-1 going into the second, Leadoff Luca got us started with a patient walk followed by a Will Flatley single. Liam, Basile and Ben showed great discipline at the plate and got on base helping the G-Men to a 2-run inning. Mets lead 4-3 going into the second.
Leo Orifice gutted out the next 2 innings on the mound, limiting the Mets to 1 run with 5 strikeouts, including a huge defensive play by Luca at 3rd base, getting Logan out - and getting us out of a bases loaded jam.
In the 3rd inning - the Giants went nuts. Jack Clifford got us going with a walk and showing great discipline nearly all Giants got on base and we batted around scoring 5 runs! Giants lead 8-5!
Going into the 4th and final inning the Giants bats continued higlighted by strong hitting by Liam Ficarra, Will and Basile - and Nathan Simon contributing an RBI walk. 10-5, G-Men.
Bottom of the 4th inning - the Sun long gone and its getting dark. Basile takes the mound to face the top of the Mets order. Dante, Logan and Timmy cause their usual havoc on the base paths causing 3 runs to score. With no outs and 3 runs in - the frustrated Giants gained their composure....and defense and pitching took over. Leo fielded a ground ball and beat John Pace to the bag for our first out. Basile and Will locked in with each other and took care of the rest with 2 strikeouts - sealing the Giants win, 10-8!
Giants Coaches could not be more proud at the effort and energy shown by our kids. Amazing job by all 8 kids!
STAY TUNED as we'll look to schedule a PRACTICE in the coming days before Tuesday's game.
Have a great weekend all!!!!!!!
