There were baseball, softball, boys lacrosse and girls tennis contests all going on at the same time. I intended to catch parts of baseball, softball and boys lacrosse, but alas the best-laid plans don't always work out.
|Rasmus was solid in the first six |
innings for Bristol Central.
Central skipper Bunty Ray sent Rasmus out for the seventh inning, but Farmington rallied. The Indians knocked Rasmus from the game, then tied it against reliever Brad Burney. A rundown between third and home led to the final out, but Farmington tied the game at 4.
In the bottom of the seventh, Noah Cruz legged out an infield grounder. It was a terrific effort by Cruz, who has been sick recently. Cruz ended up bent over behind the Central dugout.
|Lemke stole second base |
to set up the winning hit.
Later in the at bat, Banks smacked a pitch over the right fielder's head in right center to drive in Lemke with the winning run in an exciting 5-4 victory.
"He carried us offensively to be honest with you," Ray said afterward.
Earlier in the game, Banks rocketed a two-run, inside-the-park home run over the center fielder's head to give his team the lead.
Ray wasn't happy with giving up a three-run lead in the last inning, but he was happy with the guts that his team displayed.
"We battled through it and got the win," Ray said.

the final match of a long day.
If I can swing going to several games at the same place, I will certainly try. It was a nice way to spend the afternoon after a long day at work. Hope you enjoyed the post.
