  • After dropping its last meeting against CARSTAR 10-6 back on June 6th, A&W vowed to avenge its only loss last night in a make-up game at Twillman field in Harley park.
    Having won its last five games since that loss by 10 runs or more, A&W showed little if any mercy last night by beating CARSTAR by the 10-run rule after five by a score of 15-5.
    Of course that was the second game. In the opener last night in JBR, Medical Arts rallied from a 13-5 deficit after five by outscoring KWRT 17-2 in the final-two innings for a 22-15 victory.
    A&W, who improved to 8-1 on the season, out-hit CARSTAR by only one (9-8) while matching CARSTAR with two errors.
    However after watching CARSTAR put up one run in the top-half of the first, which would be its only lead in the ballgame, A&W rallied back in a big way for the rest of the game while adding three in the bottom-half of the first, two in each of the second and third innings of play and three again in the fourth to make it 10-1. Meanwhile, after CARSTAR plated four runs in the top-half of the fifth to cut the lead in half at 10-5, A&W answered again with five runs in its half of the inning to win by the mercy rule.
    Austin Andrews picked up the win on the mound for A&W while Jake Esser took the loss for CARSTAR, who dropped to 7-2 on the season.
    Andrews pitched the first-three innings and gave up one run on two hits and one walk while striking out three. Riley Lang then came in and pitched two innings in relief and surrendered four runs, two earned, on six hits and two walks while striking out four.
    For CARSTAR, which used a total of five pitchers in the game, Esser started the game and pitched 2 1/3 innings and yielded six runs, three earned, on five hits and two walks while striking out three. Alex Wright then came in and pitched 2/3 inning in relief and issued one run, unearned, on one walk while striking out one. Meanwhile, after Hunter Spaedy pitched one inning and allowed four runs, one earned, on one hit and four walks while striking out one, Thomas Simmons pitched part of an inning and issued four runs, three earned, on one hit and three walks. Then, to finish the game, Brady Yates pitched 1/3 inning and yielded just two hits.
    As for the hitting in the game for A&W, Austin Andrews went 2-for-2 with two doubles, one RBI and three runs scored.
    Braydon Johnson also had two hits with two singles, two RBIs and two runs scored while Jared Bledsoe added two singles, two RBIs and one run scored, Jady Reese with one single, two RBIs and one run scored, Wyatt Grizzle and Riley Lang each with one single and two runs scored, Jonathan Gerke with one RBI and three runs scored, Preston Renfrow with one RBI and Trent Monk with one run scored.

    Unfortunately for KWRT, they never led again in the ballgame as Medical Arts rallied back with 10 runs in the top-half of the sixth to go up 15-13. Meanwhile, after KWRT added two more runs in the bottom-half of the sixth to tie the game at 15-all, Medical Arts answered again with seven runs in the seventh for the victory.
