The Mariner team commenced their tournament today with a comprehensive 21-4 win over the Phillipines.
Rick Wills, our on the spot reporter, sent in the following update:
“Jackson Boyd started and the team took a couple of innings to “lock ” in on the Phillipines pitching and the game was quite evenly balanced at 6-4 after 5 complete innings.
Despite numerous pitching changes by the opposition the Mariner bats came to life eventually to post in the end a commanding victory.
Credit to the Phillipines team who mounted many challenges and threatened to score on more than 4 occasions however the Mariners seemed to have all the answers.
Jordy Barnett had 4 hits, Jai Lyttleton was solid in middle relief, Josh Meyer 3 RBI’s….all team members played and contributed to the result.”
Today, the Mariners play game 2, against CMNI.
