1 inning. That was all it took for the hope of finally beating their rival to vanquish into thin air. Going into the 4th inning, the Creek was leading 5-1 after some good solid base hits leading to runs and some lights out play at third by Purvis. However, the thought was always there that the defending champs would not stay down for long . . . and they didn’t. Westport Road rallied for a 9-run inning to go ahead 10-5 and then swept up the Creek 1-2-3 in the bottom half to change the momentum. The Creek suffered from 2 errors in that fateful inning to let the champs get some momentum and then just could not get the bats to get hot again finally losing 14-6. “We just weren’t ready to play them yet. Some guys have only swung the bat 3 times this season,” said Coach Keith after the game. The Creek look to regain their form, and hopefully their bats, next week at 6:30 as they continue their push for the trophy.
Game Ball goes to Purvis for his outstanding play at third fielding some shots down the line; one of those leading to the breaking of the web in his glove. Props to Dave at short for making some solid stops as well. Props also to 1b Will J for continuing his success at the plate going 3-3 bringing his 2 game total to 6-7. On the injury front, rumor is circulating that last year’s MVP Justin may make an early return from the IR; Coach Keith had no comment as of the time of this report.
