Meatspins sweep Goats as excitement is brewing in Mishawaka
MISHAWAKA- Excitement is growing quickly in Mishawaka after the Meatspins swept the Twin Branch Billy Goats to improve their record to 5-4. Fueled by the doubters, the Meatspins team proved that they are going to be a force to be reckoned with as a sweep of Twin Branch is no easy task
In Game 1, the Spins manufactured 2 runs in the bottom of the 1st and that would be all they needed as Anthony Rieff held the Goats to only 1 run while picking up his 2nd win of the season. Mishawaka sprinkled in a couple runs here and there throughout the rest of the game en route to a 7-1 victory.
Overall, Mishawaka was stellar defensively as Twin Branch struggled to get anything going whatsoever. The sure handed Spins made quick work of the Goats as they looked to clinch their first ORWBL series win as a franchise in Game 2.
Peyton Doran took the mound in Game 2 for Twin Branch as 2 time reigning Cy Young winner Andrew Doran is looking to get some other guys a chance on the mound throughout the season.
The switch to Peyton had an impact on the game early as there was a brief spat in the bottom of the 1st between Rick Woodrich and Peyton Doran regarding some of the pitches being thrown.
After a little back and forth play resumed and for the most part, the younger Doran did a great job slowing down the Spin factory.
Both teams played a solid game defensively as scoring was hard to come by for both teams. However, the lefties Anthony Rieff and Nick Thoman provided just enough offense for Mishawaka.
Trailing by 1 run, Twin Branch had the tying runner at 2nd base in the Top of the 6th but were not able to capitalize as the Meatspins were able to get out of the jam. That win clinched Mishawaka's first ever series win as the echoes of the crowd roaring could be heard across the city.
