Shamrocks 4 Pando 3 in 10 Innings

Post by jacktoast » Mon May 07, 2018 10:02 pm

San Francisco swept the Miami Pandos 4-3 in ten hard fought innings.

In game one Joe Becker (6-2) got the win 4-3 and in game two Ron Massey (8-1) threw a four hit shutout by a score of 4-0. But in game three the Pandos put up a stiff resistance before losing 4-3 in ten innings.

Both starting pitchers, Toots Wright and Earl Hassler were in good form through the first seven innings, neither allowing a run.

San Francisco broke through with a run in the eighth on a one out single by Phil Burke who stole second base and scored on a single to left field by Chuck Parker. 1-0 San Francisco.

The lead lasted one-half inning.

Harold Fenwick hit a two out solo homerun off Hassler (5th hit off Hassler).

Then in the top of the tenth San Francisco rallied for three runs.

Burke and Parker both singled, both had three hits in the game. Dark struck out Dilauro beat out an infield single that scored Burke. Jim Parrish made his second appearance of the series and got Parent to ground harmlessly to first for the second out. Then Mark Gonzalez singled in both Burke and Parker giving the Shamrocks a 4-1 lead.

That lead was entrusted to Joe Destrade and for once it was almost not enough. Fred Johnstone singled and scored on a double by Henry Broaca and Broaca scored on a single by Fenwick cutting to lead to one, Mike Swift popped out to Dilauro to end the game and give Destrade his 11th save.
