DOWN 6-2, THE MIGHTY GIANTS RALLY FOR SEVEN RUNS IN FINAL INNING TO OVERTAKE THE METROPLOLITANS AT CHRISTIE PITSGame Summary edited with files from Kevin Lawrie and Terry Brown
Under the incandescent lights on a glorious summer night, the Giants prevailed 9-6 over the Mets in four innings of Peewee Division action this evening at Christie Pits Diamond 2.
Here is a Giants account of the proceedings:
- Trailing 6-2 going into the last inning, the Giants rallied in top fourth by scoring seven unanswered runs to usurp the Mets.
- It was not a good beginning to the game as the Giants first four batters struck out to lead off the game.
- Jake (5) delivered the Giants first RBI of the game with a groundout in the third.
- Jake powered a two run double in the fourth to put the Giants ahead 7-6.
- Gabriel (9) had his first hit of the season for the Giants.
- Lucas (2) [a call up from the Dodgers] turned an unassisted double play in the third.
- Javert (3) pitched the first and fourth innings for the Giants and surrendered no runs.
Alden (13) struck out the side in the first inning. After the Giants caught fire in the top of the fourth inning, Alden played the fireman, moving from first base to the mound to strike out the two batters he faced and extinguish the rally. Alden also caught a fly ball at short and had two hits that scored runners. An exemplary game.
Mets reliever Jack (1) shut out the Giants in the second inning with a strikeout and two fine plays behind him by Alden and James (9).
Hard-throwing Mets reliever Jade (6) made her season debut as a pitcher in the third and struck out two batters while giving up only two runs. Jade also had a single and used her speed to score a run.
Mets reliever Emilia (5) struck out a Giants batter in the fourth. At the plate, Emilia recorded a walk and a single, scoring in both of her plate appearances.
Leandro (10) also had a walk and a single, and scored both times.
Mets pitchers struck out nine batters combined in four innings.
Mets catchers James and Teddy (12) were 5-for-5 throwing out runners at first base on dropped third strikes.
Mets batters had six hits and four walks against only four K’s. They put the ball in play a remarkable thirteen times.
The Giants are to be commended for their fine fielding.
