Hounds Crush NYIT 24-6

For Game 4, the Hounds headed to Chelsea Park to take on the NYIT Bears. Let's give the Bears credit, they were a good if somewhat inexperienced team. We came out strong though and never let up. Frankly, we cleaned their clocks, and the result was never really in doubt.
The offense was on point, scoring early and often. Every Hound contributed in some way. Wink had an outstanding game, going 4 for 4 in the leadoff spot and making a spectacular over-the-shoulder catch at short. Cindy did her usual thing of getting on base and she also made a couple of great catches in the outfield. She even had her own cheering section after a while. Braden had a huge game, hitting a home run and driving in 4. Mega hit a tape measure HR. Grant came in the game midway and went 2 for 2, playing a solid left. Karim did a great job, coming out despite his injury to support the team and keep score.
George was starting pitcher and pitched well despite some control problems. The defense behind him was tremendous from start to finish, never giving NYIT hope for a comeback. Complete. Team. Victory. Hounds win 24-6. We washed down the victory with some drinks and billiards at Billy Marks West.
The Hounds are now 4 and 0 and in prime position through the first third of the season. Let's stay humble though, because we all know what Yogi said.
