Alvinston Indians win on Home Turf

June 1, 2012

Glencoe scored the first run, but once Alvinston got their offence in gear, they scored often on Thursday night in Alvinston, as the Glencoe Astros came to town, in St. Thomas & District Major Fastball League action.

The Indians sent young hurler Jeff Lyons to the mound, and the young kid put in a great performance. He allowed a run in the first inning, but was perfect the rest of the way. All in all Lyons threw 6 innings of 1 hit ball to earn the win for Alvinston. The one run he allowed was unearned. He had 1 walk, and 7 strikeouts on the night, to earn the win.

Alvinston finally touched the score sheet in the third inning and didn't stop. Joe Triest singled to lead things off. Jamie Shields advanced Joe to second, and then he scored on an RBI single by Chris Drew. Brad Young then singled for Alvinston, putting runners on third and second, before Jeff Lyons doubled to score both Drew and Young. Aaron Stocking then walked for the Indians, and with two out, Tom Jobson tripled into the gap, to score both Lyons and Stocking. Andy Triest and Joe Triest then both walked to load the bases, but the Indians failed to add to their newly earned 5-1 lead.

In the home half of the fifth inning, Jobson was at it again when he singled to lead things off, and Eric Hyatt followed suit with a single of his own. A third consecutive single by Joe Triest scored both Jobson and Hyatt, for a 7-1 lead. Alvinston then scored the mercy run in the sixth inning when Lyons led off with a single, Doug Charlton followed with a walk, and then Chris Sheppard singled to score Lyons for the 8th run of the game, to end it.


The final score was Alvinston 8, Glencoe 1. Chris Drew was a perfect 4/4 for Alvinston with a run scored and an RBI. Lyons, Jobson, and J. Triest also had multi-hit games in the Indians winning effort.

The Indians are now 5-2 in league play, and travel to Niagara Falls on the weekend, for the Snapper Shootout. The Indians will be looking to better their 1-2 performance last weekend in St. Clements, where they bowed out of the tournament late Saturday afternoon.
