Alvinston Indians win at Home


June 8, 2012

Thursday evening, the Alvinston Indians played host to the Morpeth Magic at home, and both teams were impressive in this seven inning thriller. The pitching matchup of Kyle Crawford for Alvinston and Greg Guy for Morpeth was the story on this night.


The only run for either team would come in the fourth inning, when Jeff Lyons tripled for Alvinston, and scored on an RBI single by Chris Drew. Morpeth's only hit came in the seventh when Kyle Vink doubled, but Crawford shut the Magic down to preserve the shutout victory for Alvinston.


Crawford tossed seven innings of shutout ball for Alvinston, with one walk, one hit batsman, 1 hit (a double), and 11 strikeouts. Andy Triest and Chris Drew were both 2/3 for Alvinston, while Lyons and Joe Triest had the other hits for the home squad. Guy was impressive as always for Morpeth, suffering the hard luck loss, while striking out 10 Alvinston swingers.


Alvinston was scheduled to play Sunday, but that game will be rescheduled against Shedden. Alvinston hits the diamond again on Tuesday evening, when they travel to Fingal to play the St. Thomas Storm.
