Red Birds catch a snake (May 3)

On a cool night at Nutile fields, the Tri State Fire Protection Cardinals and J. Donlon Construction Diamondbacks played a hard-fought one-run game. The first three innings saw the Diamondbacks put on a clinic in fundamental baseball. Pitcher Logan Li kept throwing strikes while his defense smoothly made play after play behind him. Along the way, the Diamondbacks scored two runs, both on sacrifice hits by Will Gindel.

In the fourth inning, the Cardinals answered. Aidan Falvey and Nick Hart-Nibbrig reached base and were driven in by a Tobei Nakajima triple. Tobei later scored on a hit by Paddy Galvin to take a 3-2 Cardinals lead. Nakajima then came in to close out the last two innings for the Cardinals, following solid pitching from Ellix Sandhu and Aidan Falvey.

The Diamondbacks will have two more chances to rattle the Cardinals this season.
