Great Defense+Great Pitching=Win for MOS

25 07 2007


The MOS played one of their best games of the season, and defeated a good Highview team by a score of 7-5. Runs were hard to come by Tuesday night, but the defense on both sides was great—especially from the Men of Stone. Richard LaTour pitched a fantastic game, only giving up one walk the whole night.

The highlights of the game definitely came from the MOS defense. Besides making all the routine plays, the Stoner’s also made some spectacular plays. One of those plays, not surprisingly came from shortstop Josh Watson. A ball was hit into short left center field, and Josh ran out for it as left fielder Jake Andrus ran in for it…Josh made an over-the-shoulder basket catch, and quickly turned around and hurled the ball back home to throw out a Highview player tagging from third. Great throws came in from the outfield all night long as Ryan Duel made a great relay throw to catch a man leaning, and Joe Shriver and Jake Andrus did the same. You knew it was the Men of Stone’s night when Matt Sell attempted to beat out an infield single by “barrel rolling” into first base. Matt was called out by the ump, but his effort was given an “A” from his teammates. Joe Shriver had this to say after the game,

“When Matt rolled into first base, i knew we had the game won. I mean, someone doesn’t just somersault into a base unless they were supremely confident of the outcome of the game—Matt is our manager, he knows the team the best—after he was called out, I knew it was our night! Hopefully we can keep this up and win this week against St. Catherines, too!”

Highview drops to 5-5, as White Stone improve their record to 5-5. Please come out and support the MOS as they play their regular season finale vs St. Catherines. The game starts at 7pm and is scheduled to be played at the Town of Delafield Park (Skate park). The first 12 fans will receive a ‘Doug Harper Coffee Mug’ (Sponsored by Starbucks) .
