YANKS WIN ROUND ROBIN GAME IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIFTH
In a scintillating Peewee Divsion round robin game this evening on Diamond # 2, the Yankees edged the Jays 10-9 in five innings.
The game was an evenly matched battle between two excellent teams as the lead changed hands several times.
After the Jays (1-1) had pulled ahead 6-5 in the top of the third, the Yankees (1-1) punched right back with four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Keying the rally was a bases loaded triple by Jacob (5) which brought hime three runs and put the Bronx Bombers back in front 9-6.
However, the tenacious Jays countered in the fifth and scored three to tie the game. The key hit was a long two run home run hit by Sam (5) which tied the game.
With the score knotted at 9-9, the Yankees counterpunched in their half of the fifth as they proceeded to load the bases. It was at this juncture that Justin (2) delivered a clutch single which brought in the winning run.
Kudos to both Michael (3) and Cameron (10) of the Yankees who each pitched two strong innings.
