Quyon doubles Carp 4-2

from Eric Rosenquist

Quyon defeated Carp 4-2 on Thursday night in Quyon. Joran Graham got the win while Duane Bromley took the loss.

Carp jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when Kevin McGuire hit a single advanced to second on a mishandled grounder off the bat of Matt McNish, took 3rd on a passed ball, and eventually scored on a wild pitch.

Quyon answered with a pair of runs in the bottom of the second. Matt Greer led off the inning with a double, was bunted to third by Nick Armitage, then driven in by a Tim Craig triple. Craig scored on Earl Kearns' double, but then Carp got out of trouble with a double play from a line drive to short that doubled off Kearns.

Carp responded with a run in the top of the 3rd to tie the game at 2. Right fielder Ryan Clare drew a leadoff walk, took 2nd and then 3rd on a couple of wild pitches, then was driven in by a one-out double by Kevin McGuire.

Quyon quickly regained the lead, scoring a single in the bottom of the frame when lead off hitter Dennis McCleary hit a single and was driven in two batters later by brother Joe.

Quyon added an insurance run in the bottom of the 6th when Nick Armitage was hit by a pitch, advanced to third on a Tim Craig single, and eventually scored on a Shawn Laframboise infield chopper that the shortstop couldn't corral in time to get the out at the plate.

Carp threatened to tie the game in the top of the 7th when Matt Medaglia and Duane Bromley both reached base, but Graham got a pair of strikeouts to end the threat and the game.

Caveman's Choice for player of the game was Joran Graham who the pitching win with 17 strikeouts, allowing only one earned run and was 1-3 at the plate.

Final score 4-2 Quyon.
