Diamondbacks Clinch The Championship!
Tuesday, June 21, 2005
The Championship game was one game in which "The Come Back Kids" didn't have to come back. They were in control from very early on in the game. The D'Backs pitching was fabulous, allowing only 1 hit the entire game. Jarret pitched 3 innings, allowing only 1 run to score, Reed pitched 2 innings with 5 K's, and Trevor & Ryan pitched 1 inning, allowing only 1 run. There was some great fielding by Eric and ace catcher Brody, who caught for 4 innings.
The Diamondbacks were on fire offensively as well with singles by Joey and Brian and a key sacrifice by Billy. Mike hit 2 singles scoring 2 runs and Jarret hit 2 doubles, scoring 2 runs and scored a third run with his 5th out of the park home run over the center field fence, right where his dad parked their car.
As an interesting footnote, in a 10 year district team tournament game later that night in Moorsetown, Jarret hit another out of the park walk off home run with 2 men on to end the game as Medford won with the 10 run rule in the bottom of the 5th inning.
The Diamondbacks had a terrific year and all the boys improved their baseball skills while having a really fun season. They always worked together as a team and held their heads up high, win or lose.
The coaches would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents for their support throughout the season and wish you all a very happy and safe summer.
