The Angels continued their onslaught with two more runs in the third as Taylor and Michael led off with walks and eventually scored on some additional walks. After three it was 7-2.
In the fourth, Kevin came in and struck out the side. Michael hit a nice single to right in the bottom of the fourth, but sadly, Robby’s long fly to center was caught and the inning ended.

Eric’s nice throw to Jonathon was a textbook play.” Coach Grossman reached by a phone interview as he again was scouting talent in the Midwest said “Coach Goldstein told me the game went well. I was able to get the play-by-play call of the second inning from Coach Emeritus Grossman and it was a thrilling inning.”
