Best game of the year! Dramatic victory! Clutch hits! Everyone picked it up after a long layoff from rain and holidays. Good fielding, good pitching, clutch hitting and nerves of steel. We got off to an early 5 run lead. Matt pitched two shutout innings to carry us into the 3rd. The second inning saw the best opponent pitcher we faced all year who thwarted us throwing bullets for the next 2 innings. We gave up 5 in the bottom of the third tying the game. We went down 6-5 in the 4th with 2 out on a tough slow grounder through the mound. The bottom of the 4th showed the character of the team with everyone playing to be the hero. Paul with the leadoff smack up the middle stretched into a double with a textbook slide. Connor drew a tough one out walk after battling back from 0-2. With two out and men on 2d/3rd, Jack DELIVERED a huge hit, smacked, solid up the middle plating one run for the tie. Jack firmly established himself as a hitter tonight with two solid hits and 3RBI. Christian delivered the game winner with a pop to short that could not be handled - it all starts with hitting the ball. Huge victory over tough pitching. WE BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kudos to team 12.
