THE CUBBIES PREVAIL OVER THE METROPOLITANS IN A LONG AFFAIR AT CHRISTIE PITS
Beneath a layer of cloudy skies, the Cubs defeated the Mets 11-8 in three innings of Peewee Division action this evening at Christie Pits Diamond 2.
Here is a brief recap of the proceedings courtesy of Kevin Lawrie:
- Cubs starter Ezra (15) shut down the Mets in 1-2-3 fashion in the top of the first inning for a quick start to an impossibly long game.
- The Cubs scored four in the bottom of the first to take an early 4-0 lead. The frame was capped by a two run triple from Charlie (7).
- Cubs starter Ezra’s second inning pitched wasn’t so great as the Mets rallied to tie the game 4-4.
- In the bottom of the second, the Mets issued six walks and one hit batsman that allowed the Cubs to score four to take an 8-4 lead,
- However, the Metropolitans didn’t go away as they scored four runs in the top third against Cubs reliever Noah (13), who was making his career pitching debut.
- Sam (14) made a nice catch at first base and slapped the bag for a double play. However, the Mets baserunner was called safe and replays were inconclusive/non-existent. The proceeding was deadlocked 8-8.
- Cubs collected the eventual go ahead run in the bottom third after a leadoff single from Marshall (3), who scored on Charlie’s second triple of the game. Both Charlie and Joey (6) would steal home in that inning and the game ended at 7:52 p.m. at 11-8 for the Cubs!
