Pitcher’s Duel Two at McConnell
The neighborhood rival Savin Hill Hornets and McKay Club Beacons locked heads for another pitcher’s duel at McConnell in just three short days. The beacons prevailed by the same score as Sunday 2-1. Different tossers were on the bump for each team – of course. Eric MacIver (0-1) got the call for the Hornets. Eric pitched 6 innings; allowed 2 runs on 5 base hits. He pitched well enough to get a victory. Kevin Loveless got his first start of 2012 for the beacons. Kevin tossed 7 innings. He allowed a solo run in the 3rd on 6 base hits. He K’d 4 and walked 4.
The Beacons were led by Captain Jack Owens. Jackie was put in the lead off slot and he led the game with a solid single. He died on base as the Hornets pulled off a nifty 4-6-3 double play on a Ryan Walsh scorcher up the middle. The Beacons have enjoyed some fun with two outs of late. They had 2 down in the third when they plated their only 2 runs of the night. Kyle Power had that two out single to light the fire. He advanced to 2nd base on the hit as the short stop threw the ball away. Owens promptly plated Power with a double to left center. Then Jackie was sent home on a Drew Tambling single.
The Hornets stirred things up in the 4th. They took advantage of Loveless’ temporary melt down. Kevin walked three in the stanza & a base hit to give the Hornets a chance at 2-1. Things got sketchy for the Beacons in the 7th as the Hornets Zach Lane walked with one out then came a solid single by Freddie Carrera to send runners to second and third on the throw to third. Loveless responded by striking out the next two batters for the victory.
