Bandits 13u Defeats Batavia Bulldogs Red
The Batavia Bandits 13u team defeated the Batavia Bulldogs Red last night at the West Main Street field in Batavia. Both teams played hard to the end but the Bandits came out on top with a 8-7 final score.
The Bandits lineup hit the ball especially well, combining for 16 hits in the 7 inning affair. The Bandits scored 4 runs in the top of the second to take the lead 4-2. They added three more runs in the top of the 4th to extend their lead 7-2. The Bulldogs kept fighting back scoring two runs in 4th, one run in the 5th and tied the game with 2 runs in the bottom of the sixth.
The Bandits scored one run in the top of the 7th after a Socha single, and an RBI double by Mietus.
The Bulldogs threatened to tie the game in the bottom of the frame with a runner on 2nd and only one out. The Bandits however closed the game with a “strike em out, throw em out” steal attempt at third, preserving a 8-7 victory.
Congrats to the Bandits 13u team and all the fans and family that came out to support them.
