Alvinston Indians Win in Glanworth

thursday july 11, 2013


After two recent games which were cancelled on Sunday and Monday evenings, the Alvinston Indians finally got back to work on Wednesday evening in Glanworth.  The Indians sent Jeff Lyons to the mound, and he received lots of offensive support on route to a victory for both himself and the Alvinston Indians.


The game was scoreless through two innings, but Alvinston finally counted in the top of the third inning, when they manufactured 5 runs.  Joe Triest walked, Jamie Shields singled, and Jeff Lyons walked to load the bases.  Aaron Stocking reached base via a fielder's choice, but J. Triest was putout at home plate.  With one out, Eric Hyatt singled to score Shields and Lyons.  Ryan Chapman then followed, and clubbed a triple into the gap, scoring both Stocking and Hyatt.  Brad Cooper then hit a sacrifice fly to score Chapman, and the fifth run of the inning.  The Indians added 2 more runs in the fourth inning.  Joe Triest walked again, and Shields singled again, putting runners on first and second with no one out.  A groundout by Jeff Lyons advanced the runners to second and third, and a 2 run RBI single by Stocking plated both J. Triest and Shields, for a 7-0 lead. 


The Gators would respond with a run of their own in the bottom of the fourth, and in the fifth, the Indians failed to get the offence clicking.  It was however in the sixth inning, when the Indians put an exclamation point on the game, ensuring their victory.  J. Lyons and Stocking both reached base via a walk, and Hyatt collected his third, fourth, and fifth RBI's on the evening, when he smacked a towering three run home run.  Chapman then walked, and Cooper singled for the Indians to start another rally, and Steve Lyons reached base on an infield single to load the bases.  Andy Triest reached base via a fielder's choice, but was able to score Chapman to collect an RBI.  J. Triest then followed with a sharp, line-drive, RBI single to plate S. Lyons, and Shields stung another single, his third of the evening, to plate A. Triest, for the thirteenth run of the evening for the Indians.  Glanworth was able to score one in the bottom fo the sixth, when Kyle Kreiger crushed a 3-0 offering over the centre field fence, for a solo homerun. 


The Indians pounded out 13 hits, and reached base via the free pass on 8 occasions.  Shields was 3/5 for the Indians, Hyatt was 2/4, S. Lyons was 2/4, Chapman was 2/3, and Cooper was 1/2.  Hyatt's five RBI's were a career high for the veteran Indians outfielder.  J. Lyons was the winning pitcher in the game, tossing 6 innings, with 2 earned runs, 6 walks, and 2 hits allowed in the contest. 


The final score was Alvinston 13, Glanworth 2.  Alvinston will host the Springfield Brewers tomorrow evening at 8:00pm on home turf, where they hope to improve upon their 11-2 record on the season.
