Big second inning pushes Andale/Garden Plain past Circle
After a quiet first inning from both sides, the Andale/Garden Plain bats came alive to the tune of a seven-run second inning to help the Indians past Circle 10-7 Monday afternoon.
Circle entered the game with just one blemish on the season, an 11-1 mark before the Indians handed them losses number two and three in the doubleheader sweep, also taking game two 8-7.
Ben May got things started with an RBI single, then after making it 2-0 on a passed ball Brandon Mude entered the batters box with the bases loaded, clearing them on a three-run triple to left center to get it to 5-0. Dakota Pugh and Dylan Hahn followed Mude run-scoring base hits of their own as Andale/GP took the 7-0 advantage.
After a sac fly made it 8-0, Circle got a pair back in the third with Easton Barrier scoring on a passed ball and Brandon Terrones delivering an RBI single.
Trailing 10-4 entering the final inning, Circle started to put a dent into the Indian lead, a Terrones RBI single and Cole Leubbert two-run base hit making in 10-7, but it was too little too late for the T-Birds as they suffered the three run loss.
