Alpharetta Walks it Off Against the Cannons



Alpharetta, GA - Coming off a win in Brookhaven on Saturday, the Aviators welcomed the red-hot Cannons in the first of two games. Keisler got off to a bit of a rough start as he quickly gave up two singles that put runners on first and second with one out. Aiden Boileau then hit a double to bring in the first run. This was followed by a two-out double from Curcio that brought to more in as the Cannons quickly went up 3-0. The Aviators wouldn’t wait long to strike back as Kloiber would hit a one out solo shot off Clark that cleared the trees in left field. Morgan would follow this up with a single and move to second on a sac fly. He would then be brought in by an E5 to make it 2-3. The second inning was very quiet as both teams went three up three down. McDevitt would get a leadoff single to get the third inning started, but he would be thrown out while trying to steal as the next two batters flew out to center field. Cowart would also lay down a leadoff single and would also be thrown out trying to steal. Kloiber would then draw a walk but would be left stranded.


The Canons would go down in order in the fourth. The Aviators would then find themselves with a great opportunity to tie it as a single and a walk put Kaiser in scoring position with one out.

The Canons would find themselves in a similar situation as they lay down two one out singles to get scoring position. They would then ground into a 6-4-3 double play that left one runner on base. Bishop would come in for relief for the Cannons in the bottom of the fifth. He would quickly put away the first two batters before giving up back-to-back singles, but he is able to escape unscathed. The Cannons would again find themselves with two on with one out, but leave both runners stranded. Alpharetta would get two on base with an error and a walk but would again leave runners stranded.
