Round 2 of the Victorian Summer Baseball League was a historic one for Mitchell Majors.
The Winter Club not only played in their first Summer League game (due to last week’s washout), but came away with a 27 – 6 win against Fitzroy Gold.
Nathan Sims pitched 3 of game’s 4 innings and tallied 6 strike outs.
Isaac Robinson went 4 - 4 with 3 singles, a double with 3 RBI's. Robinsons also Issac came in to close the game in the last.
Other contributors with the bat included Jesse Sherman (4 - 4 with 2 doubles, 2 singles and 5 RBIs) and Anthony Stafford and Andrew Jenkin who both went 3 - 3.
The Majors scored three in the first inning to take an early lead before conceding two in the bottom half of the inning. Five runs in the second followed by a massive 19 run third inning was enough to seal the victory for the Summer League debutantes.
Paul Osborn and Nick Attard both made their debuts with Attard going 1 - 3 with a double in his first game for the Club.
The Majors would like to thank Research Baseball Club for allowing them to host Fitzroy as their home ground was under water. Without them they would have missed a second game in a row due wash outs.
