Game Report composed with file from Steve Smith
Under sunny and breezy skies this afternoon at Dominico Field at Christie Pits, the Monarchs defeated the Crawfords 11-8 in six innings of Midget Division Championship Series action.
With their hard fought Game 3 victory, the Monarchs take a 3-0 stranglehold in their best of seven championship series over the reigning Midget Division Champions.
Here are the highlights:
- Joel (15) of the Monarchs went 4 for 4 at the dish with three runs scored.
- Oliver (10) and Markus (8) made some super defensive plays to snuff out potential big innings by the Crawfords.
- In workmanlike fashion, Monarchs pitcher Sam (9) threw a good game to stymie the Crawfords offense.
- Monarchs pitcher Daniel (2) and second baseman Sadie (13) combined on a nice double play. After Daniel caught a pop up near the mound, he alertly turned and threw to Sadie at second to turn the 1-4 putout.
