Game Summary

Knights Spear Gators in Extra Innings!

At approximately 3pm, as the rest of the Knights and the Sayville Gators began their journeys from Suffolk County to North Woodmere Park located somewhere in Kansas, Paxton Provitera crisscrossed Long Island to pick-up equipment and players. Amazingly both teams had enough players arrive on time to start the game.

The Knights looked strong behind the arm of Lucas Clementz and some early scoring with Ryan Cox and Tommy Reilly scoring in the first and Sean McGuire scoring in the second. Amid some arm pain Lucas had to be relieved in the fifth inning after the Gators had tied the score at 3.

In the top of the fifth Tommy Reilly put the Knights on top with a solo homerun that just keep rolling. Billy Vogt took the mound and was immediately reminded how much the home plate umpire disliked him. The Gators took the lead with 1 hit and 4 walks...thanks blue. The Knight came right back and retook the lead in the top of the sixth, but with 2 outs and bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, the Knights made their second costly error allowing the tying run to score.

In the extra frame the Knights made 2 quick outs, but would not be denied as Tommy Reilly singled, John Bosch and Hector Rolon walked and Richie Cave came through with his fourth hit of the night knocking in 2 runs. This last Knights comeback proved to be too much for the Gators as the first three batters of the inning popped up to end the game.

Knights Knotes:
* Sean McGuire continued his hot streak and is now 11 for his last 14!!

* Richie Cave began a new hot streak going 4 for 5 with the game winning RBI!!
