On a windy afternoon and a wet diamond the Royals went down to the Rams 3-7 at K.C.White Reserve.
With Spencer Jack and Terry Jeon unavailable, the work on the mound went to Brandon Stenhouse, Mitch Wilcox and Sam Street.
5 hits, 3 walks, a SacFly, and an infield wild throw saw the Rams put 6 runs on the board off Brandon in his two innings and this was crucial to their win.
Gabe Sandersuis the Newport non-national dominated, pitching a complete game for 10 hits, 4 walks, 9 K’s in a total of 153 pitches for a total of 3 runs.
Mitch Wilcox and Sam Street were both strong for 3 innings each, Mitch allowing 1 run in the 4th, from 3 hits, 2 K’s, 3 walks, while Sam Street allowed just 1 hit, 3 walks 1 K and 0 runs in his 3 innings.
Tony Cevec, Jake Sinclair & Nick McLeod all scored 2 hits, but the scattered hitting was unproductive.
Sandringham 3 runs, 10 hits, 3 errors.
Newport 7 runs, 9 hits, 1 error.
