Game Post composed with file from Paul Kelly.
Under warm and hazy skies, the Lizzies edged the Reds 11-10 in four innings of Mosquito Division action this evening at Christie Pits Diamond 2
Here are the Lizzies highlights:
- Lizzies reliever Jude (12) held the Reds scoreless in the third with three strikeouts, Jude also drove home the winning run in the bottom of the fourth in a bases-loaded/tie situation. Jude had a RBI single and a walk to reach base 3 for 3.
- Quinn (14) returned from injury after a long absence and pitched a good first inning by holding the Reds to two runs once he shook off the rust and settled in. Also 3 for 3 on walks.
- Other Lizzies RBI singles credited to Sebastien (15), Daniel (4) and Lewis (10).
- A good overall team effort by the Lizzies.
- Kudos to the Reds infield, which was a force in the second, for holding the Lizzies to four at bats — two flyouts and a groundout.
