The Longhorns came ready to hit this game. We caught the Cardinals off of a provincial hangover and they were running on fumes. Dakota pitched well for the win, Aaron Pepin was a HR away from the cycle and Norris Philpotts did not last long with the K-lid promptly hitting a triple dead center to get rid of it. Paul Reid and Pep had 3 RBIs apiece. Everybody seemed to have got a hit and it was good to play some ball again. It started raining about half hour after the game so hopefully the grounds crew can get it ready for the next FMBA game. The Cards ended up plunking Peaches twice with 40 mph curve balls as a thank you for his services in provincials.
Special congratulations to Longhorns players Craig Joyce and Jade Alberts on their +35 National Championship. Well done boys. The FMBA and Sunburst league was well represented. Next up we play the Cardinals again on Friday.
