Posted May 3/10 - Red Sox beat Irish in Sloppy Conditions and get first Win of the Season

Sunday afternoon saw the Red Sox take on the Irish, in what turned out to be a wet sloppy game.  Taking the mound for the good guys, was newly acquired lefty Jordan Peever, making his first start of the season, the lefty struggled at first but eventually found his groove and cruised to a remarkable 10 strike outs in 5 innings of work.  The Red Sox struck first blood in the first, cashing in a run which would stand until the 6th inning. The game was all about pitching, as the Red Sox only allowed 1 hit through the entire game, but only amounted 4 themselves.  The ace for the Irish struck out 8 Red Sox hitters, and was very impressive through his first 5 innings as well.  With a 1 run lead going into the 6th Brad Mckibbon took the mound for the boys in Red, but a constant downpoor and less than acceptable pitching conditions, would see the righty struggle with control and walk 3 batters to load the bases.  With no out and the bases juiced, the Red Sox brought in Righty Tyler Bettles, after walking the first batter he faced, which cashed in a run, the righty settled down, and retired the next 3 Irish hitters, and got out of the inning with only 1 run scored.  With a tie game going into the bottom of the 6th, the Red Sox would get a break when catcher Dan Gabrick was hit in the head with a wild pitch.  That would prove to be the biggest error of the game for the Irish, as pinch runner Emerson Pendleton, would take full advantage of a couple pass balls, and score the go ahead run.  With the lead now regained, and the umpires on the verge of calling the game, the good guys would go one more inning, and give the Irish one last at bats.  But Tyler Bettles would prove to be to much for the Irish, as he retired 3 of the 4 batters he faced in the last inning.  All and all the Red Sox squeaked away with their first win of the season, in what was without a doubt a knock down drag out game.  Our hats are off to both teams who braved the horrible conditions, and made it a game to remember.
