A good start to the season for our senior teams, with all of them competitive against last years Baseball Victoria Club Champions, Melbourne.
Significantly all teams fought back from deficits.
@ Surrey Park, the 3s came back from a 6-0 deficit to tie the game 7 all.
The 4s were down 5 – 0 early, and came back, but eventually went down 7-5.
@ Tulip St, in a tight game, the 2s were down 1-0 early, but came back to win 2-1.
And the 1s went up 1-0 early, until the Demons fought back, leading 4-3 in the 7th, but with a 2 run double from Zac Skinner, and the Brandon Stenhouse closing out the game (after a great 7 innings from Jayson Arthur), the Royals came away with a 5-4 win.
This was a great start to the year, as the with injuries and unavailabilities, the senior group was pretty light on across the board. We expect only to get stronger from here.
We thank all our players, returning and new, for playing the game hard and but fair. We look forward to the return matches with Melbourne next Sunday.
