3/25: Without a doubt, this was the biggest game of the season so far. After losing to MC on Tuesday, it was important for the ballclub to make a good showing today – which they did. In front of the biggest crowd of the season at Moody, the team looked much better and was able to dominate the game, securing a 9-1 win.
The Giants drew a better pitching matchup in today’s game, so it was a good opportunity to get the bats going. The team responded with seven hits. Merritt Brinckerhoff, Rory Minty, Charlie Welch, Cole McGowan, Jerry Omara, Danil Wells, and Rory Coughlan all had hits for the Giants.
Kent Goodman got the start on the mound for the Giants. He pitched three and two-thirds innings, giving up 1 run on 4 hits, with 2 strikeouts, and 4 walks. Goodman got into a bit of jam in the fourth. MC put two men on with 2 outs. Jerry Omara came in to finish the inning, striking out the batter to end the threat. Omara also pitched a scoreless fifth. Rex Solle came on in the sixth, and pitched 2 scoreless innings, striking out 3 to end the game and re-establish some order in the MCAL baseball universe.
With the victory, the Giants are now 10-3 overall, 7-1 in MCAL.
