Alvinston Indians Get Important Win

July 25, 2012 

The Alvinston Indians travelled to Fingal on Tuesday evening, for the second half of a double header for the St. Thomas Storm. St. Thomas defeated Glencoe in extra innings in game #1, and would face the Alvinston Indians in game #2.

Kyle Crawford took the mound for the Indians, while the Storm countered with Ryan Cummings. Alvinston hit the scoreboard quick in the opening inning, when a one out single by Jamie Shields started things off, and Shields would come around to score after a single to centrefield by Chris Drew. In the fourth inning, the Indians added another run to their small lead, making it 2-0. Jeff Lyons led off with a walk, was sacrificed to second by Doug Charlton, and then scored on an RBI triple by Aaron Stocking. St. Thomas would score a run in their half of the fourth, to cut the score in half, 2-1.

After the fourth inning, it was all Alvinston, as the Indians counted three runs in the sixth, and two more in the seventh inning. In the sixth, Jeff Lyons smacked a sharp single, then stole second base, and scored on a Charlton RBI single up the middle. Kevin Morgan went in to pinch run for Charlton, and he would come around to score, on a two run bomb by Stocking on the first pitch he saw. In the seventh, Joe Triest singled to lead things off, and Shields followed with a two run homerun of his own.

The final score was Alvinston 7, St. Thomas 1. The win moved the Indians into a tie with Shedden for first place, as each team has an identical 15-5 record, and 4 games to play. Kyle Crawford was the winning pitcher for Alvinston, pitching seven strong innings, while allowing 4 walks, and 2 hits, while striking out 12 Storm swingers. Aaron Stocking and Jamie Shields were both 2/4 for Alvinston with two run homeruns, while Jeff Lyons was 2/3.
