AL Game 11

Coldwell Banker Preferred    12
Murtagh Brothers    2

Coldwell Banker defeated Murtaugh Brothers 12-2 Saturday morning behind another stellar pitching performance by Avi Patel. Murtaugh got on the board first when John Coccodrilli and Gabe Taimanglo both walked and Coccodrilli came around to score on a Michael DiMonte RBI single. But Patel pitched out of the jam and Murtaugh left the bases loaded. Coldwell answered back with four runs in the bottom of the first. Mike Phillips singled and took second base on an errant throw. He then scored on an RBI single off the bat of Jason DiRita. Patel singled and Arizin walked to load the bases for Jack Gill who laced a liner to right center allowing DiRita and Patel to score. Shawn Welsh and Ryan Gauffreau both walked but the inning ended when NL call-up Theo Jauregi was robbed on a nice play by the second baseman to end the inning.

Patel did not allow a run in the second or third. But Coldwell had a big second inning scoring 8 runs. Phillips (walk, 2RBI single) scored two runs in the inning. Patel (singled, scored), Arizin (singled, scored, stole home), Gill (walked, scored, stole home), Matt Halpin (walked, scored), Welsh (walked, scored) and Gauffreau (walked, scored) all reached base in the inning. Coldwell did not score in the third but took a 12-1 lead into the 4th. Bianca Penn tried to start the comeback by smoking a triple to left center to lead off the inning. She scored on a Connor Martin RBI single. But that was the end of the scoring and the game ended early due to the 10-run rule when SS Mike Phillips fielded a hard grounder up the middle and stepped on second for the force-out to end the game.

Coldwell will be back in action Monday night when they face Coach Heff's Quotations squad for the first time this season.
