July 16 – O’Fallon, MO – On a perfect night for baseball the 8u-Scachitti Bombers found themselves in an offensive slug fest on Wednesday night at Westhoff Park vs. the Pirates.
Both teams were having little trouble getting runners across the plate, however the teams were producing runs in much different styles. The Pirates were playing small ball with a series of singles followed by a clutch extra base hit. The Bombers on the other hand were dominating the long ball hitting multiple home runs on the night. Luke S. had a big night hitting home runs on consecutive at bats.
While both offenses stole the show it was a defensive stand by the Bombers that sealed the deal on a 19-17 victory. Leading 19-17, the Bombers recorded 3 consecutive outs including a ground out to Kenny R. and the final out of the game on a groundout to A.J.
The same two teams will play again on Thursday night, 6pm at Westhoff Field #2.
