On a hot summer day, made for baseball, the Braves played their best defense of the year and beating the high powered Twins 3-2, to push their record to 5-5-1.
The Braves got great pitching from Dan Torre, who worked 3 innings allowing one hit and one run. Liam Nornazanik pitched the 4th allowing one run against the 2-3-4-5 batters of the Twins, and Ryan McGowan game in for the last 2 to shut down the Twins for the save.
The defense of the Braves came up big again, in the first inning Vin Corbi tracked down a well hit ball to right to make a catch and then in the 5th with the score 3-2, the Twins had 1st and 2nd and two outs. The batter ripped a ball to 3rd base, where Eric Adamson dove to his left (and I mean dove like Brooks Robinson) got to his knees and threw the runner out at first to end the 5th. The play of the year, ESPN web gems!!!
Ryan Pretti and Joe Funari added hits for the Braves.
The game was a great game on both sides, not many mistakes, just a good old fashion hot summer day baseball game.
Thank you parents for working the concession stand yesterday, your help was greatly appreciated.
Next game June 1st - practice Thursday Nite at 6pm at Hartford Road complex (Softball)
