CUBBIES 9-6 WIN VERSUS THE PIRATES PROPELS TEAM TO MOSQUITO CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
The Cubs defeated the Pirates 9-6 in a Mosquito Semi-Final game tonight at Diamond # 2 to advance to the TP Mosquito Championship Game.
The superb Cubs pitching staff held a pesky and stubborn lineup of Pirates to only six runs over five innings while striking out eleven Pirates batters. The Cubbies offense made the most of their opportunities to build a 9-5 lead after four innings. It was a lead they would not relinquish.
The Cubs advance to the Mosquito Championship Game scheduled for Thursday, September 16 (6:00 p.m./Diamond # 2). The Cubbies await the winner of the Giants-Cardinals semi-final game which is scheduled for tomorrow evening (Tuesday, September 14) at Diamond # 2 (6:00 p.m.).
