Alvinston Indians Split Double Header

July 9, 2012 


The Alvinston Indians played host to two teams on Sunday afternoon in a double header. In game #1, it was the Shedden Mission, and in game #2, it was the Glanworth Gators.

 

In game #1, Alvinston opened the scoring early, scoring a run in the first inning, and adding another in the second inning, for a 2-0 lead. Andy Triest and Chris Drew both singled to with one out to start things up in the first inning, and Jeff Ingram drove home A. Triest for the game's first run. In the second inning, a walk by Aaron Stocking, and a sacrifice bunt by Tom Jobson, put Stocking on second, and Joe Triest singled him home.

 

Brad Young got the nod for Alvinston, and he was cruising through the first five innings, but in the sixth he was touched up for two runs, and Shedden knotted the game at 2's. A scoreless seventh inning for both pitchers, sent the game to extra innings, and the international tie-breaker rule. Shedden went to work scoring five runs on four hits and two walks, with the big hit being a bases clearing double by Dan Hutchings.

 

With Shedden now in the lead 7-2, the Indians had to claw back, but they didn't have enough, eventually losing 7-3 to Shedden in game #1. Jason Dawdy was the winning pitcher, while Brad Young suffered the loss for Alvinston. Andy Triest was 2/4 for Alvinston in a losing effort.

 

In game #2, Glanworth notched the first run of the game in the second inning, off of Indians starting pitcher Jeff Lyons. Lyons however was sharp the rest of the way, as the young pitcher tossed a 4 hitter for Alvinston. Alvinston replied with three runs in the bottom of the third, and that was the game essentially, as the Indians went on to win 3-1. Alix Chisholm singled to spark things up for Alvinston, while Joe Triest followed with a walk. Andy Triest advanced the runners to second and third on a well executed sacrifice bunt, and then a double by Chris Drew scored both runners. Ingram then followed with a walk, and Lyons singled to load the bases. Stocking then singled to score Drew, for the third and final run.

 

Jeff Lyons was the winning pitcher for Alvinston, while Chisholm, Lyons and Drew were all 2/3 in the contest. Stocking and A. Triest were both 1/2, and the Indians captured a 3-1 win in game #2.

 

The Indians will now travel to Glanworth on Wednesday night, for an 8:00pm game, and will be in Alvinston on Thursday evening, for a double header versus St. Thomas on home turf.
