THE DEFENDING BANTAM DIVISION CHAMPIONS WIN THE GAME IN THE FINAL INNING
In a thrilling Bantam Division round robin game this evening at Dominico Field, the White Sox edged the Lizzies 7-6 in five innings.
It was a seesaw type of game as two quality teams battled and exchanged leads several times during the proceedings.
The White Sox (2-0) (behind some superb pitching from Joel (14) and Brendan (1)) made the most of their opportunities and had jumped out to an early 5-2 lead after two innings.
But the Lizzies (0-2) gamely fought back with four runs in the top of the third to take a 6-5 lead.
However, the two time defending champions fought back in the bottom of the fourth as Salim (5) of the White Sox scored and evened the game at 6-6.
Adrian (15) pitched a scoreless top of the fifth to give the White Sox an opportunity to pull out the win in the bottom half of the inning.
With one out, Phillip (2) of the White Sox drew a walk and eventually moved to third. It was at this juncture that Simon (3) delivered a clutch single to bring Phillip home with the winning run.
