Alvinston Indians Take Series Lead

tuesday september 9, 2014

A day after Glanworth pitcher Jake McKillop pitched a gem and totally silenced the Alvinston Indians offence, en route to a 2-0 shutout win, and series equalizing game; the Glanworth Gators travelled back to Alvinston for game 3 in the series.  The fans were in for a beautiful night of ball and a great game, as both teams aces were keeping opposing offences quiet.  The home team Alvinston Indians started ace Kyle Crawford, while Glanworth countered with game 2 winner Jake McKillop, who is their ace.


Crawford and McKilllop both shut the door all night.  The game was scoreless through six complete innings.  Crawford got out of a jam in the top of the fifth inning, leaving runners on second and third, while Alvinston threatened in the sixth inning, leaving runners on first and third, but couldn't cash off of McKillop. 


In the top of the seventh inning, Crawford set down the Gators in order, with two more strikeouts and a total of 16 on the evening, to go with two walks and hits allowed in the game.  In the bottom of the seventh, Crawford reached base on a single, and Devin Triest sacrificed him to second on a perfect bunt, and Triest was safe at first due to a Glanworth throwing error.  With one out in the inning, Glanworth elected to walk leadoff hitter Joe Triest to load the bases.  Next up was young Bryan Johnson, and he did not disappoint, with a two strike hit up the middle to score Crawford for the game's lone run, and a 1-0 Alvinston lead and walk-off win. 


It was a fantastic ball game that the fans surely enjoyed.  McKillop was the hard luck losing pitcher, allowing 3 hits, 3 walks, and two intentional passes, while fanning 14 Alvinston swingers.  Crawford got the shutout win for Alvinston, by helping them to a 2-1 series lead with both his arm and his bat.  Game 4 goes Wednesday in Glanworth at 8:00pm
