Round 4 Round Up
The top of the table clash between the undefeated Preston Pirates and the Wolves turned into a fizzer with the Wolves offering little resistance going down 1 - 10. The early Wolves form was actually very competitive and they took a 1-0 lead into the top of the 4th before the Pirates started hitting the ball hard and often and also capitalising on errors to put on 7 runs in the innings.
When added to the dominant Pirates pitching which didn't give up a single safe hit the Wolves just couldn't peg back the lead.
The great thing about baseball is you get a chance to redeem yourself in the next game and the Wolves will be looking to put in a much better performance in next weeks showdown against Newport. No doubt we'll see a lively game based on local rivalry.
The Twos registered their first win of the season in a dominant display against Preston winning 8-1. The Wolves started aggressively in the 1st scoring 5 runs on the back of 4 walks and a big triple from Braxton Conroy that brought in 2 runs. From there things settled into a more dogged battle with only 4 more runs scored for the rest of the game. Braxton Conroy did best with the bat going 2 from 3 (both triples) with 3 RBIs..
In a great all round performance Braxton started on the mound and pitched 4 innings for just the 1 earned run. Daniel Chircop pitched an innings and new player Sam Thompson impressed closing out the last 2 innings with the minimum 6 batters to the plate.
