Well what do you know, kids - the Spirit have won 6 in a row. And they didn't just win game 1 in Quebec, they won it in breathtakingly awesome fashion by a final score of 7-2.
Ryan Bicondoa was spectacular. He gave up 2 runs on 3 hits in a complete game effort. He retired the side in order in every inning from the 2nd thru the 6th and retired 19 in a row overall during his dominant stretch.
The Spirit set the tone in the 1st, putting up 3 runs including a solo homer by Alex Trezza. North Shore tacked on 3 more in the 2nd. During the 2nd, Josue Lopez hit his 3rd home run of the season.
Josue Lopez and Vic Davilla each had two runs batted in on the day.
Joey Siak takes the hill against Quebec's Shawn Ryan in game 2, which will start at about 7:35.
