LIZZES PITCHING STAFF STIFLES BRONX BOMBERS OFFENSE
The Lizzies used a strong pitching staff to dictate the tempo of the game and emerged with a 9-5 victory over the Yankees in three and a half innings of play at Diamond # 3 today.
Using four pitchers, the Lizzies were able to limit the vaunted Yankees offense to just five runs over four innings of play. The Lizzies pitchers were effective in not giving up too many big innings to the Bronx Bombers by allowing only one four run inning. This allowed the Lizzies batters to make the most of their offensive opportunities to build up a 9-4 lead heading into the final inning. It was lead they would not relinquish.
Kudos to Sammy (12) of the Lizzies who pitched a stellar 1-2-3 first inning and Cooper (13) who effectively closed the door to any Yankees comeback in the final (fourth) inning.
