After several rained-out games, the Giants played their final game of the Fall season and defeated the Cardinals 6-5. A nice win to end the season. Matt L. started on the mound for the Giants and pitched for 3 innings, striking out 9 and allowing only 1 hit and 1 run. Jaz pitched the next 2 innings in relief, striking out 5 and allowing 2 more runs based on walks. Madhav closed the game, striking out 2 and relying on great fielding from Bobby at 1st who caught a screaming line drive headed for the center-right gap. Offensively, the heart of the Giant’s batting order went to work with Jaz, Matt L. Ian P. and Ian W. all scoring runs and driving RBI’s. Matt and both Ians all hit 2 for 3 on the night. Joe and Ben also scored on Cardinals fielding errors.
Now it’s the off-season, time for the World Series and some serious off-season training as Matt prepares to play AAU baseball again in the Spring.
