AL Game 6

Coldwell Banker Preferred    7
Plush Mills    3

Coldwell Banker improved to 2-0 on the season after defeating Plush Mills 7-3 on Saturday afternoon. After starting pitcher Joe Arizin set Plush Mills down 1-2-3 in the first, Coldwell got the scoring started when Sean Gorman singled and scored on a ground ball RBI by Jason DiRita.

Arizin was strong again in the second, walking two batters but leaving both runners stranded. Gorman made a tremendous play at SS to throw out Elizabeth Salazar at first to end the top half of the second. Coldwell got a single from Arizin to lead off the bottom of the second but were unable to score. Avi Patel came in to pitch in the third and set Plush Mills down in order, 1-2-3. Coldwell added a run when Mike Phillips (walk) stole second and third and then scored on an Avi Patel RBI single. Plush Mills got on the board on the top of the fourth when Jacey Fox legged out an infield single and continued using his wheels to steal second, third, and home. Jack Gill (fielder's choice) and Anders Kristiansen (walk) both scored in the bottom of the fourth after being walked in to make it 4-1 Coldwell. Plush Mills closed the gap when Nicolas Fox (hit by pitch) and Sam Ramsey (walk) scored in the inning.

But Coldwell added some insurance runs in the bottom of the fifth. Patel led the inning off with a walk. DiRita then laced a single to center. Gill walked. Then Patel stole home on a passed ball. Arizin crushed a double to right center to bring two more runs home, making it 7-3 Coldwell. In the top of the 6th, Sean Gorman came in to close it out. He used an electric fastball to strike out all three batters he faced and needed just 11 pitches to do it.
