General: The North Tahoe Cardinals pitchers shut down the Red Sox in order for the first two innings while their offense jumped out to a 2-0 lead. The Red Sox offense came alive in the third inning as Ethan and#8220;Etrainand#8221; Maiden, Jack Wright, Andrew Parkurst and Drew Wingard all singled, followed by a resounding triple by Sean Kelly that produced four runs. The Sox pitchers held the Cardinals to one run the rest of the game, while the Red Sox offense put up two more runs in the fourth and three in the sixth.

Batting stars: For the Red Sox, hitting seemed to be contagious, as almost everyone in the lineup got a hit. Jayden Commendatore had two hits, one a triple, and scored two runs. Sean Kellyand#8217;s triple was also instrumental to the Red Sox win. Also contributing hits and scoring runs for the Red Sox were Max Wingard, Andrew and#8220;Kmanand#8221; Kratz, Ethan Maiden, Jack Wright, Andrew Parkurst and Drew Wingard. It was a true team effort by the Red Sox.

Fielding stars: Playing second base, Drew Wingard made a spectacular over-the-shoulder catch of a Cardinal hit headed for short right field. It was probably the catch of the year. Max Wingard also made a fine catch of a line drive, then alertly doubled the Cardinal runner off first base. Jayden Commendatore threw three innings from the mound, followed by Peter Vaio, Drew Wingard and Jack Wright for one effective inning each.
