Cardinals Fly Off with Win vs Dodgers (May 12)

On a cold Friday night in May, the Tri State Fire Protection Cardinals and the Paula Russo Sughrue, RE Dodgers played for first place in the standings. The Cardinals started the scoring in the top of the first with a lead off double by Anton Crawford, an RBI single by Aidan Falvey, and an RBI single by Tobei Nakajima. The Dodgers got one of the runs back in the bottom of the first as Peter Sughrue led off with a triple and later scored on a Jihyun Kang sacrifice fly. The Cardinals added to their lead in the second with a two-RBI single by Crawford following a William Schlesinger single and Jack Baker walk. The Dodgers kept the scoring going with two runs in the bottom of the second as Liam Poole, Wilder Murphy, Ryan DeLucia, and Henry Wassarman all reached base. In the fourth inning, the Dodgers tied the game 4-4, deftly manufacturing a run out of a dropped third strike.

The Cardinals took command in the fifth inning, scoring four to take an 8-4 lead. Quinn Falvey started the inning with a single and Crawford and A. Falvey loaded the bases with walks. Nakajima then added to his RBI total with a double and Ellix Sandhu followed with a two-RBI single. Will Massa and Schlesinger added hits to complete the big Cardinals inning. Each team added one more run with a final Cardinals 9, Dodgers 5.

Kang started for the Dodgers with a strong performance before hitting his pitch limit in the fourth inning. The combination of Sandhu, Crawford, and Nakajima handled the pitching for the Cardinals. The Cardinals and Dodgers will face each other two more times during this regular season.
