It was a well played game on both sides. There were great plays in the field by Christopher Bruccoleri, Daniel Raziyev and Joshua Raziyev. Offensive stars for the Braves were Daniel Raziyev and Christopher Bruccoleri with 5 hits each. Christopher also had 2 doubles. Hayden Leiderman, Ryan Wasserman, Erik Lyngstad Hughes, Joshua Raziyev & Garrett Roth each had 4 hits. The team has shown great improvement.
The Astros finished their summer season undefeated with a 9-0-1 record. This last game was a nail-biter to the end. Pitchers Jason Siedman, Brian Nankoo, Matt Fitzgerald & Jimmy Denara kept the Astros in reach until the final inning when the Astros exploded for 5 runs. Anthony Bartolotta came in to pitch the bottom of the inning to preserve the victory. The offense was led by Nick Mrakovcic, John Denara & Mike Telsey with Michael Zuschlag playing solid defense behind the plate. Also contributing to the Astros’ success all summer were Andrew Yun, James Castaldi, Michael Chamaidan, Jacob Leeds and Fran Labita.
