Day 7. Again another successful day for the Major Sox securing another 2 wins. First game of the day was against Picadilly and the Major Sox won 6-5.With the score 4-1 in favour of Picadilly, the boys were in need of some inspiration. This came from Adam Woon hitting out of the DP role. A line drive to right field skipping past the right fielder saw Adam round the bases making the game 4-2. With the score still 4-2 heading into the bottom of the 7th, the Major Sox were down to their last 3 outs. But some smart hitting saw 2 runners reach second and third with 2 outs. Up to the plate steps Adam Woon again. A line drive single to right field scored 2 runs and Adam Woon providing another clutch hit. To tiebreaker it went. Picadilly managed to score 1 run, putting the pressure back on the Major Sox. Callum Bishop showed off his experience with a smart slap over the pitcher advancing Lewis Jerard to third and Callum also managed to reach first safely. That brought Curtis Dove to the plate with 0 outs. A fly ball from Curtis found its way to left field scoring Lewis from third. some heads up baserunning from Callum who tagged up and reached second on the play caused the left fielder from Picadilly to throw the ball over the second baseman into right field, allowing Callum Bishop to score easily from Second finishing the game. A mention has to go out to Sam Marley who pitched all 8 of the innings and holding the opposition down enough for his team to get the win. A great comeback from the boys and please the supporters who made the trip over from N.Z. Game 2 of the day was against Bedford from Australia. 5-1 was the final score and again Adam Woon provided the inspiration by pitching all 7 innings. Tonight we're catching up with the supporters.
