Game post: Spirit @ Surf, 6/1, 7 PM
The Spirit look to turn it around tonight as they start a 3 game series in Atlantic City. Will Bicondoa be on the hill? Discuss the game here..........
NSS 0 2 2 4 1 1 4 0 0--- 14
ATC 2 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 4--- 8
SP: Joey Siak : 6 IP 4 ER
RP: Derek Drage: 1 IP 0 ER
RP: Donny Langdon: 1 IP 0 ER
RP: Kevin Fitzgerald: 0.1 IP 4 ER
RP: Dennis Robinson: 0.2 IP 0 ER
Bot 4: Crazy game so far. Jerson Perez has 3 RBI and Darren Blakely hit his 2nd HR of the season in the top of the 4th to make it 8-4. Siak has been very sloppy to this point.
Farley is pitching tomorrow, Morse on Sunday, so no Bic --- yet.
Siak escapes a jam in the bottom of the 4th inning -- maybe he'll settle down now that he has a nice lead to work with?
Top 5: Wally Rosa's sac fly scores Fischer and it's 9-4. In other news, Brad Rea actually got a hit.
Top 6: Blakely RBI triple but he's down injured, holding his ankle (?)... he's having a really big game to this point, let's hope he's OK
Top 7: Mike Torres has gone yahhhd off of Surf rookie pitcher Mario Martinez and the Spirit have extended the lead to 11-4. Every Spirit player has at least one hit.
Gil Gil comes in to pinch hit for Cordova and HE gets a hit, too--- he's now 3-for-7 on the season. Jerson Perez followed with a 2RBI double to rub more salt in Atlantic City's wound---5 RBI now for Perez.
Blakely adds a SacFly for the 14th North Shore run - Blakely's 4th RBI of the night
"They are releasing all of their pent up offensive frustration" - Leahy
Bot 7: Drage in to pitch for the Spirit. Siak wound up doing pretty well after his shaky start.
Bot 9: After Langdon tosses a shutout inning, Fitzy comes in to close it out.
He's struggling - 2 runs are in for the Surf so far.
ATC's PA announcer is even more over-the-top-terrible than ours.
Bot 9, Part 2: WTF!!!! 4 runs in for Atlantic City... 14-8 now and Mark Burke up. What is going on, Fitz?
Fitz pulled in favor of Robinson...
...and he gets two outs. Spirit win.
