Alvinston Indians go one and one in recent play

May 19,  2012


In the St. Thomas District Men's Fastball league the Alvinston Indians welcomed the Glanworth Gators to town on Thursday night for their second meeting of the season. Alvinston was able to defeat Glanworth, in their first and only road game to date, by the final score of 8-3. On this evening, it would prove to be much of the same, as Alvinston's offence was too much.

The Indians sent young right hander Jeff Lyons to the mound, and the Gators were able to get to him early, scoring a run in the first inning, after a lead off walk came around to score. But Alvinston answered big time in the bottom of the first, scoring five runs. The big hit was a three run homerun by Aaron Stocking, while Doug Charlton and Brady Davenport drove in the two other runs in the opening inning. Joe Triest, Chris Drew, Charlton, Stocking, and Lyons all scored runs.

The bats then went dead for several innings for Alvinston, but that was not the case in several innings for Glanworth, but they just couldn't cash their runners in. In the bottom of the sixth inning, Alvinston went to work in a big way. Andy Triest and Joe Triest led off the inning with singles, and then A. Triest scored on an RBI single by Jamie Shields up the middle. Drew then reached base on an error to load the bases, and Charlton followed by clubbing a double into the left field corner, that scored J. Triest, Shields, and Drew, for a 9-1 mercy win for the Indians.
Jeff Lyons was the winning pitcher for the Indians tossing 6 innings of 1 run ball. Lyons allowed 5 walks, but only one hit, and struck out 5 Glanworth swingers.

On Friday night the Indians suffered their first lost against the Morphet Magic taking a 11 - 5 loss. 

Alvinston is now 3-1 for the season,
