Running Away?

Two weekends of the SFL are now complete...almost. Today's SFL action ended with the Black and Green teams in a 7-7 tie after five innings of play in the second of two SFL games. The Green Team jumped out to an early 4-0 lead after two innings but the Black Team rallied with seven unanswered runs in the third and fourth innings. Pat Kilway led the attack with a pair of hits and drove in four. Mike Morgan, Bobby Seda and Cody Blood each scored a pair of runs during the two-inning span. The Green Team put their own rally together in the fifth to plate three when four of the first five hitters recorded base hits. The game was officially suspended and the teams will resume play next weekend.

In the opening game, the Gray Team showed why they are sitting in first place and have no interest in letting up by scoring in each of the first three innings. Zach Mosbarger led off the game with a triple and later scored on a Ryan Rua sac fly. Rua has now driven in a run in each of Gray's five games. Gray loaded the bases in the second and Johnny Christani singled in a pair and Rua added his second sac fly of the game to extend the lead to 4-0. Christani came through again the very next inning with another bases loaded single which plated two. The Green Team started a late rally but only managed a pair of runs when Nick Lovick doubled in Jae Leeworthy. Lovick would score on a Ryan Anstaett ground out. Brandon Grunda recorded his first win of the fall throwing an inning of scoreless baseball.

The team will have practice Tuesday, Thursday and Friday before resuming SFL action on Saturday. Stay tuned to for updates from the field and for recaps after the game.
