Game Post composed with file from Kevin Hewitt.

Beneath a canopy of cool and sunny skies, the Mets edged the Reds 9-8 in an exciting 3 ½ inning Mosquito Division showdown at the Bickford Park South Diamond.

The game between these two second year Mosquito Division expansion teams was a thrilling rock ’em sock ’em battle royale from beginning to end.

Trailing 5-1 in the top of the fourth, the Big Red Machine rallied in tenacious fashion by scoring seven runs to overtake the Metropolitans 8-5.

However, the Amazin’ Mets answered back in the bottom half of the fourth when they stormed back with four to usurp the Reds and earn a hard fought victory.

Here are some additional highlights:

  • Nicolas (10) delivered a RBI double in the top half of the first to give the Reds an early 1-0 lead.
  • The Reds starter (Mystery Pitcher who remains unidentified) struck out the first three batters that he faced in the bottom of the first to keep them off the scoresheet.
  • The Mets tied the proceedings in the bottom of the second after Alden (5) powered a triple and stole home.
  • The Reds seven run comeback in the fourth was predicated on a clutch triple delivered by a Mystery Batter who remains unidentified.
