All Stars continue early winning run
THE Coffs All Stars have maintained their unbeaten start to the year after downing the hard-hitting Blue Sox 5-4 in a come-from-behind win.
Blue Sox dominated the Stars for the majority of the match with pitchers Cody and Aiden Banks giving up just one hit between them.
The Blue Sox batting line-up was also in form.
Aiden Banks drove several hits to the outfield and Jordan Parsons, in his A Grade debut, collected two hits for the game, including one off the first ball faced.
But fielding errors and walks were enough to keep the All Stars in the game, along with the pitching of Derek Jordan.
In the end a Bill Langler ground out was enough to send the winning run home in the bottom of the fourth inning.
In Saturday’s match-up, Dodgers proved too strong for Brewers collecting an 18-7 win.
The Dodgers got off to a hot start with Brewers’ pitcher Juaques Kruger facing down 15 batters in that first inning.
Brewers staged a fightback in the third inning, getting seven batters across the home plate, but it was too late to reel in the Dodgers by that point of the match.
The Dodgers were well served by Scott McLean who collected three hits and Andrew Mainey who pitched two scoreless innings, giving up just one hit in the process.
For Brewers, Hunter BakeSmith was strong with two hits and Matt Erskine performed well in his sole innings of pitching.
LET IT RIP: Derek Jordan on the mound for the All Stars.
