Smooth plays in the field by Anthony Lanzilotta, Nevin Nambiar and Jake Seker. Mike Lopez continues to hit the ball hard. Web gem of game goes to Landon Phillips who made a game ending catch of a line drive to second base. Special thanks to our call up Jake G. The second game of the series was just as exciting as the first with Peter Tagios and Michael Varrone on the hill. Solid plays at third by Landon kept the Pride batters off the bases. Once again nice hitting by Mike L and Lou led to the Bears runs. Go Bears!

The contest was close during the early innings, which featured strong pitching by Kenny Gensch and a snared liner by shortstop Elliot Weissman. David Klebanow and Jake Blancher got the offense started with base hits off an up-and-coming Phillies pitcher. The game turned on a bases-loaded, two-out play by first baseman Eric Madenberg, who backhanded a grounder headed for the hole and beat the runner to the bag. That fueled a big inning, including Chris Bruccoleri with a two-RBI hit and Charlie Goodwin with a shot down the third base line. The bats stayed hot the next inning with Paul Fadoul drawing an RBI base-on-balls. Sean O’Connor singled up the middle, then stole second and third before scoring on Ivan Vidaich’s clutch hit.

It was an excellent game played by both the Brewers and Diamondbacks.
