Alvinston Indians lose in Extra Inning

May 24, 2012

The Alvinston Indians traveled to Fingal on Thursday night, to play the Shedden Mission. Shedden opened the scoring early, scoring a run in the opening stanza, off of Indians starter Kyle Crawford. Shedden threatened in that same inning, and one more, but Alvinston and Crawford were able to keep them off the scoreboard.

In the top of the fifth inning, Jeff Ingram changed the score with one swing of the bat for Alvinston, when he cranked a deep home run to notch the game at 1's. Alvinston had a chance to score in their half of the seventh, but failed to do so, and also failed to do so in the eighth, with the international tie breaker rule in effect. Shedden then scored in their half of the eighth when Tyler Lynch drove in the winning run, for a 2-1 win.

Brad Young was the hard luck loser for Alvinston, as he relieved Crawford in the fourth inning, and went the rest of the way. Young allowed only 2 hits in 4 1/3 innings of work.

The Indians are now 3-2 on the young season, and travel to St. Clements on the weekend for their first tournament of the season.
