Karl Richter Field B 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th+ Final
Grand Blanc 2 4 1 4 1 0     10
Holly Grey 0 1 0 0 0     1

Position Played:

1B 1B Sat Out 1B 1B      
While Drew's teammates are primarily at the younger end of the age spectrum for this level of baseball, it was obvious based on the skill and size of this Grand Blanc team that they were the more experienced team today The experience factor was evident right from the start, as the Grand Blanc team racked up 4 runs in their half of the first inning. Drew came up third in the bottom of the first, and he hit the ball, but unfortunately it was a fielders choice as they threw the runner out at first. Drew wound up reaching second base on an overthrow, but that was as far as he got.

Each team scored a single run in the second inning, but the third inning followed the pattern of the first, as Grand Blanc plated 4 runs while Holly was kept off the board. Grand Blanc scored a single run in the fourth, but Holly wasn't able to answer. Drew struck out in only his second at-bat of the game, swinging at low pitches that were called strikes all night long.

The two teams played the fifth inning, but it wasn't much to write home about, as neither team was able to score. That would be it for the night, as the 9 run lead invoked the mercy rule after 5 innings. Lets hope things go better when Holly returns to the field next Tuesday...
