Alvinston Indians Win On Road
Tuesday july 29, 2014

The Indians were on the road in Glencoe on Monday evening, to face the Astros.  The night wasn't necessarily a stellar evening for ball, with the wind playing havoc, and coats worn by both players and fans.
That however didn't stop Indians cleanup hitter Aaron Stocking, as he hammered a homerun for Alvinston in the top of the second inning, for a 1-0 lead. 
In the bottom of the third, Glencoe would piece together 2 runs, when Indians starting pitcher Crawford allowed four walks.  The second Glencoe run scored on a sly running play, when Astros shortstop Rowan Lam stole home after a pitch, and put the Astros in front.
Alvinston was quick to square matters in the top of the fourth, when catcher Jamie Shields doubled, advanced to third via a wild pitch, and then scored on a sacrifice fly by Jeff Lyons.  In the sixth inning, Alvinston exploded for five more runs, to take a commanding 7-2 lead, and they added one more run in the seventh, for what would end up being an 8-2 Indians win.  Cole Pavey drove in two runs on an RBI single, while Bryan Johnson, Stocking, and Tyler Huff drove in the other runs in the Indians five-run sixth inning.  In the seventh, a walk by Lyons, and a single by Stocking put runners on first and third, and Brad Cooper hit a sacrifice fly to plate Lyons for the eighth and final run. 
Kyle Crawford was the winning pitcher for Alvinston, tossing all seven innings, and allowing 1 hit and 5 walks, while fanning 10 Glencoe batters.  Lilley suffered the loss for Glencoe. 
Next up for Alvinston and their 21-1 record, is another road game on Tuesday evening in Springfield.  Game time is 8:30pm
