Brighton Heights jumped on the board early again, hitting grounders and line drives into the gaps to build a first-inning 4-0 lead. They added another four runs in the third inning to take a commanding lead.
Brady Sulinski got around the bases in the second inning for Greenfield on some nifty base running and two errors by Brighton Heights.
Michael Twigg also provided a bright spot for Greenfield in the fourth inning with a beautiful solo home run over the left field fence.
Defensively, there were some notable plays in relays from the outfield. Chasing down a hard shot to left field, Ethan Heidel-Roberts hit his cut-off man, Bryan McCann, who fired the ball to third base. Samson Hill put down the tag to get the speedy runner out by only a hair.
There was also a relay from Luther Harper in right field to Sulinski to McCann for a tagged out.
The top of Greenfield's lineup struggled to put hits together all evening, and it wasn't until the top of the sixth that the boys in Green put together some back to back base hits, with Brandon Twigg reaching, then Michael Twigg on a stand-up double to left center, then Brady Sulinski. Two runs came across eventually, but it was too little, too late to mount another comeback.
Brandon Twigg pitched the first three innings, and Michael Twigg finished out the game. With his home run and several K's pitched in his two innings, Michael Twigg was named his team's MVP.
Congratulations to Brighton Heights for a game well played, and to Greenfield on taking 2nd. The action continues for the 12s at Elliott Thursday night at 8 p.m.
