YSA: Hounds Fry the Fish

Wink took the mound looking to give us back to back wins to start the season. He pitched brilliantly, allowing only 3 runs through the first 4 innings. The defense behind him was much improved from Opening Day. Meanwhile, our bats were disciplined and every Hound was able to contribute to the scoreline in some way. Allie and Pat each had 3 RBIs, with The Bopper going yard for the first time this season. We let in some cheap runs in the last inning, but the game was well in hand at that point. Final Score: Hounds 14, Fish 5.

We're off to a 2-0 start and are improving week to week. Hopefully we can keep building on this as more difficult games lie ahead.

Hounds Win On Opening Day

With Juiena on the mound, the Hounds prevailed in a close one against Top of the Rock. The umpire blew a few calls but fortunately it did not cost us the game. We had some standouts like JT (2-2, BB, 2 RBIs, 2 RS), Iain (3-3, RBI, RS), Pat (2-2, 2 RBI), Karim (1-1, RS,RBI), and rookie Sam (3-3, 2 RS). Our defense was solid for the most part even though there were a couple of miscues. Juiena aided her own cause with a 2 RBI single. The game was called early due to darkness, and it was not too soon. Final Score: Hounds 12, Top of the Rock 10.

The season starts on a high note but we are going to have to make some improvements if we are to hang with the elite in the division.
