Simply Amazing! Giants Top the Braves, 15 - 3!
May. 9, 2011
The Giants came prepared for a battle Saturday as they took on the Braves in their second game of the day on May 7, 2011. With less than a half hour of rest between their first and second game, the Giants were not unraveled. Was it the hotdogs that did it or was it just the awesome team work and coaching efforts by Giant team that brought home the victory?? Regardless, the Giants reigned throughout the game and brought home the win with a 15 – 3 victory over the Braves.
Lead pitcher, Ben Neadow pitched all three innings of the game. With Ben at the mound, the outfield saw little action during the game. The Braves were able to pick up one run per inning, but found it difficult to score against the Giants’ defense.
This game was one of the best games played by the Giants. The Braves’ defense were no match for Giants’ offense. This was the first game of the season, where all players were able to get on base. Although all players had a great game with some great hits, Ben Neadow and Nicolas Carrasquero had some powerful hits combined and drove in over half the runs for the team.
The game ball was captured by John Tillman. John had an awesome game. Not only was he the catcher for all three innings of the game, John had an amazing hit, landing him a single. That hit drove the Giants fans wild! Congratulations John on picking up the game ball.
With the only double header in the Collins Hill league this season, the Giants did not waver and did not lose focus. Coach Todd was simply amazed by the players’ performance. Coach Todd had the following message for his team; ”That was a GREAT TEAM effort in the two games we played today. I felt that the team was clicking in all areas today; fielding, hitting, pitching, and base running.”
The team has its final regular season game next Saturday against the Phillies. Good luck next week Giants!
