Stittsvile wins 7-5 over Carp

from John Craig

In GOFL action Wednesday night at the Grove, the Stittsville 56ers beat Carp I4C Victory 7-5.

Darren Featherstone had the complete game win, while Ryan Chatten took the loss with relief from Cody Price.

For Carp, Shawn Simzer singled in the top of one and stole second. Joel Langford singled to left and Simzer tried to score but Ryan Bond threw a strike to the plate, 1 out. Singles followed by Matt McNish and Bobby Jack Hart scoring Langford to put Carp up 1-0.

In the bottom of the frame, Featherstone lead off with a triple for Stittsville and stayed stranded.

Both teams cruised along pretty cleanly until the 4th.

In the top of the fourth there was a single by Hart but he was caught trying to steal 2nd. Following a single by Tony MacDonald, Matt Medaglia hit a two run bomb to make it 3-0.

For Stittsville in the bottom of the fourth Scott Herriot and Bond walked, after which Dan Bradley launched a screaming line drive well over left field fence to tie things up at 3.
In the bottom of the fifth, John Craig lead off triple. Three consecutive walks to Herriot, Scott Jessiman and Bond scored Craig. Bradley's single scored two more and Bond later scored on Trevor Scott's fielder's choice to make it 7-3.

Carp made things close in the top of the sixth. MacDonald walked and Eric Rosenquist went in to run. An errant pick off attempt ended up scoring Rosenquist. A solo homer by Adam Purdy to right then made it 7-5 for the 56ers.

In the top of the seventh Carp threatened with a two out triple by Al Read but that was all Carp could muster and the game ended 7-5 for Stittsville.

For his big night at the plate (HR, 5RBI), Danny Bradley is the Caveman's Choice for player of the game.
