  • SPORTS: MAA Report

    In their fourth meeting of the year, Tsontos Furs defeated Harry Katz 3 - 2. Continuing a long-standing tradition, Katz's Anthony Morais led the game off with a single and stole two bases. Ryan Pratt drove him home with a single, but strong Tsontos fielding turned a double play to prevent further damage by Katz. Joe Spollen tripled to the gap in left field, but was left stranded at third. The Furs stole a pair of runs in the bottom of the first, with Michael Vasconcelos and Chris Brostek reaching base safely and then stealing home. The Furs continued playing small-ball in the second, with Chris Brostek stealing home for the second time to put the Furs ahead by two. The game moved along quickly after that, with Harry's Ryan Pratt trading strikeouts with Tsontos' Michael Vasconcelos and Michael Brady. In the sixth, Katz started singing their rally song when Morais scratched out his third hit of the day and scored on Terry Mooney's double. Terry moved over to third when Joe Spollen bounced out to Alex Eisen, but Mooney was stranded on base. Pitching was superb throughout this game, with the Furs' Vasconcelos and Brady combining for 11 strikeouts and Katz's Ryan Pratt going wall-to-wall, notching 13 strikeouts over his five fine innings of work.
