THE MIGHTY GIANTS PREVAIL OVER THE GRITTY LIZZIES AT BICKFORD PARKGame Summary edited with file from Kevin Lawrie
Beneath a warm ceiling of midsummer skies, the Giants defeated the Lizzies 8-5 in three innings of Peewee Division action this evening at the Bickford Park South Diamond.
Here is a Giants summary of the proceedings:
- Returning from the thirteen day Peewee Division Civic Holiday break, the Giants prevailed 8-5 over the Lizzies in three innings at Bickford Park.
- The Giants offense was powered by triples from Ben P. (11) and Max (10), and a double from Gabriel (9).
- Giants pitcher Javert (3) closed the game for his fourth save in four opportunities.
- A three-run third inning with two outs gave the Mighty Giants a wider lead heading into the bottom half of the last inning.
- In the bottom of the third , the Giants turned a nifty 4-3 defensive putout with a pretty ‘Jake-to-Jake’ play involving second baseman Jake M-P. (6) fielding a ground ball [off the bat of Ethan (7) of the Lizzies] and throwing to first baseman Jake C. (5) for the first out of the inning.
