Selects vs. Kings
Wednesday, August 19, 2015
The Selects rode timely hitting, solid pitching, and strong defense to a 5-4 win over the Kings Tuesday night, improving their record to 15-7 on the year.
Down 5-2 entering the bottom of the seventh, the Kings managed to get the tying run to second base, but pitcher Shayne Riepert induced a pop-up in foul territory to end the game.
Darren Strickland (3-4, run, RBI) and Mike Welton (3-4, run) led the team offensively, collecting three hits a piece. Riepert, who improved to 8-4 toeing the rubber this season, added a very important two-run double in the fifth to solidify the Selects victory.
MVP: Mike Welton, 2B
