THE WHITE SOX PREVAIL OVER THE ATHLETICS TO WIN THEIR SECOND ROUND ROBIN TOURNAMENT GAME AT DOMINICO FIELD
Under warm and humid skies, the White Sox defeated the A’s 11-7 in 3 ½ innings of Bantam Division Round Robin Tournament action this evening at Dominico Field at Christie Pits.
Here are the highlights:
- Leo hit a MONSTER double to power the White Sox attack.
- White Sox closer Owen threw a scoreless top of the fourth to preserve the win.
- In contrast to Wednesday’s 15-4 loss the Expos, the A’s played an improved round robin game this evening.
- The top four in the A’s batting lineup [Evan (10) , Jack (8) , Jerome (3) and Sam (15)] went 2 for 2 on-base, with seven hits and a walk.
- The Athletics were undone by sloppy defence, but not as sloppy as yesterday.
- Big guns Sam and Jerome pitched three innings (Sam pitched first two), and did well enough to win, but didn’t get the run support.
- In a postgame media scrum, A’s Head Coach Paul Kelly said it was a much-improved team today and we hope to continue in this direction as we head towards the elimination rounds of the tournament.
