The 2020 season is here and the Falcons got it started off with a dramatic win against La Salle, by a final of 1-0.
Not much action in this one, as evident from the final score. There were only 5 hits for both teams combined. What was evident was good pitching. Will Grimm (sans grunting) allowed only three hits on the evening (two off the fists, and one that hit the plate and bounced up 50 feet in the air). He also tallied 9 strikeouts and went all 7 innings.
The last half of the 7th inning came and the score was still 0-0. After two quick outs on two pitches, Luca Cuneo then drew a 2 out walk. Mason Allen then pinch ran for Cuneo, and Colby Rees came to the plate. With a 2-0 count, Rees blasted a ball off the left field fence that easily scored Allen from 1st base...the celebration was on with the walk-off win!
Always good to start with a win, but I'm not sure my heart will make it through the season if they all go like this.
Enjoy the pics.
See you at the next game!
