GAME SUMMARY

By:  James Rankine

The Minor Cardinals came out knowing that in order to win the double-knock-out tournament they would have to beat the Minor Yankees twice during the afternoon. In game one, the Cardinals came out swinging and beat the Yankees 12-3 before a crowd of about 150 people.

But in game two the Yankees looked like they had the championship in hand as they had a 3-1 lead going into top of the fifth and final inning, when the Cards would go onto score two runs to tie the game and send the game into extra innings.

In the top of the sixth inning, the Cardinals would score a run to take a 4-3 lead. In the bottom half of the sixth, the Yankees looked like they were about to tie or even win the game as a bases loaded tweener looked like it was going to drop into short left-field but the smooth gliding shortstop of the Cardinals was able to hall the ball in to save the game.

A very exciting and well played game start-to-finish.
