Thursday's night game against the Kiwanis the score was Lions - 1, Kiwanis - 3.
However, the Lions get the official win due to their pitcher pitching more than
7 innings in a calendar week. The Lions have played the Kiwanis twice this year
and both games have been really fun for both teams. They have both been well
played with very few errors. A testemant to that would be a 7 inning game on
Tuesday being completed in less than 1 hour and 45 minutes. Congratulations
go out to both pitchers, Gage Dunn of the Lions and Alex Weiss of the Kiwanis.
Alex faced 24 batters and struck out 11. Great game.
