YSA: Stats thru 10

It's interesting to look at the stats as we head into the final stretch of the season. Some new names have emerged in the team leaders category. Props to Mano and Rebecca for being Iron Hounds and making it to every game.

YSA: Hounds Strike Back

With our backs against the wall and seemingly little to play for but pride, the Hounds took the field at the Queensboro Oval. The clay field is not ideal for the game we love, but we made the best of the situation. Our opponents were the team from Ralph Lauren, and they gave us a pretty decent fight for a few innings. Margaret was the starting pitcher and she threw strikes early and often. Meanwhile, the offense was led by Pat and Mano, who each went 5 for 5. Wink also chimed in with a 3 run jack and 6 RBIs in total. Our defense had some gaffes but we also made some solid plays, including some nice relays to the plate by Juice and Paige. We broke the game open in the late innings and the tension from the losing streak was finally released. Final Score: Hounds 24, Ralph Lauren 9. (mercy)
