Young Ballplayers and Journalists

Late last week, as the Intermediate boys baseball team was hosting camp Lincoln, the Pioneer section attended the game in the role of fans and reporters.  Here’s the detailed post game report they filed:


baseatpoko09Pok-O came into the game looking to repeat their previous result, when the younger Pok-O boys beat their rivals, Lincoln, 9-1 earlier in the week.

Kevin Q started on the mound for Pok-O striking out six batters, letting up three hits and allowing no runs.  “I was just doing my thing,” Kevin said.  “Throwing strikes.”  Pok-O struck early in the bottom of the first with an RBI walk by Carter and an RBI single by Jaime.  Pok-O held a 2-0 lead throughout the second and third with strong defense.  Will P relieved Kevin in the third and continued the shutout, but with two outs in the fourth Lincoln finally struck back with an RBI double.

There were many highlights throbaseatpoko08ughout the game, starting with Camden‘s three-out inning (taking the mound in the fifth and pitching lights out, striking out five batters), and Andrew M‘s play from behind third base.

The game swung in the seventh and final inning.  Tied 2-2, Lincoln loaded the bases with three singles, eventually scoring three runs.  Pok-O fought back in the bottom of the seventh, filling the bases and scoring one run.  But a pitching change by Lincoln made the difference, as they escaped with a 5-2 win.

“It was a good game,” reflected Camden.  “We played well and our defense was great, but we didn’t get the hits in the end.”  Kevin added that “It was a sad result, but everyone got on base.”  And Jaime concluded “It was close; we just missed our chances late in the game.  We all tried out best and had fun at the same time.”

Many thanks to the Pioneers for this game story. See sports rosters and photos HERE
