THE ARTFUL DODGERS SQUEAK BY THE CARDS IN THE FINAL INNING TO WIN THEIR FIRST ROUND ROBIN GAME
Under picture perfect summer skies, the Dodgers edged the Cardinals 6-5 in a four inning nailbiter at Christie Pits Diamond 2 to win their first game in the Mosquito Division Round Robin.
With the bases loaded and the game tied 5-5 in the bottom of the fourth, Micahel (3) drew a RBI walk to bring in Adam (8) from third base with the Dodgers winning run.
Here are some additional highlights:
- Cardinals starting pitcher Brian (5) threw a 1-2-3 first inning where he struck out all three Dodgers that he faced.
- Dodgers reliever Sasha (13) threw two strong innings of relief in the second and third. Sasha allowed only one run while striking out four Cardinals.
- Adam (14) doubled to lead off the top of the fourth for the Cards and eventually scored the run that tied the proceedings 5-5.
- Louis (1) stroked a 2 RBI double in the second that allowed the Dodgers to tie the game 3-3.
