On Thursday, Aug. 11, the Mineola Summer Baseball 9/10U baseball team hosted Garden City at the Jackson Avenue School in Mineola. As has been the case in the summer league, Mineola scheduled several players to pitch. Mineola utilized seven pitchers; Eddie Pardo, Ryan Duffy, Wil Gilberg, Patrick Solosky, Kieran O’Gara, Kevin Roach and Kenny Solosky. The Mineola pitchers kept the Garden City hitter’s off-balance and the outcome of the game was never in serious doubt.
The Mineola bats came to life early with a 5 run first inning. Garden City got into an early jam by loading the bases by issuing a walk to Patrick Solosky, a single to Wil Gilberg and another walk to Kenny Solosky. Kevin Roach then drove in a run with a single.
