Kars Aces wins game one over Micksburg Twins

The Kars Aces won game one of the Greater Ottawa Fastball League best of three final series by a score of 1-0 over the Micksburg Twins in Manotick on Thursday night.

It was a chilly 5 degrees Celsius with a light rain for this pitchers' duel.

Brad Porter earned the win, allowing only two hits, two walks and striking out 13. Joran Graham allowed his first run after four straight shutouts - however, he only allowed one hit, walked one, and struck out 17 of the 18 batters he faced.

Andy McIntyre had a hit as the first batter of the game for Micksburg, but a well executed 5-4-3 double play ended that threat. Chad Costello hit a double to lead off the second, but a pop up and two strikeouts stranded the Twins' catcher. Graham and Costello both walked in the fourth with one out, but two straight strike outs ended the rally.

Brad Pender hit a double for the Aces to lead off the bottom of the fourth. He got to third on a wild pitch and ended up scoring the game's only run on another wild pitch. Every other Kars batters, two through nine in the order, had two at bats and struck out in both appearances. Pender walked in his third appearance, the only other baserunner for Kars.

Game two of the series is scheduled for Saturday October 5 at 6:30 p.m. in Micksburg. Accuweather is predicting 11 degrees and partly sunny.
