Posted Sunday, March 13, 2011 by Kurt Standen

Speed and defense combined as Woodcreek took a decisive 10-2 win over Napa.

The T-Wolves struck fast and often starting in the first inning as Austin Hagarty drew a walk, Stephen Nogosek doubled, Wade Brill walked to load them up, Kramer Sutey drew another walk plating Hagarty, and with two outs, Jay Standen lined a shot through the second baseman bringing in both Nogosek and Brill.

In the second inning the Woodcreek attacked again with a Michael Blair walk and stolen base, a Perry Beaber bunt which resulted in a hurried throw that sailed to the fence allowing Blair to score.

Brandon Cain, the Woodcreek starting pitcher breezed through a pair of 1-2-3 innings when Napa mustered enough offense to score their only runs in the third.  Cain continued to pitch efficiently through five, keeping Napa off balance and making use of a solid supporting defense.

In the fourth inning, after seeing Napa put a pair of runs on the board, the T-Wolves kept the pressure on using  team speed via small ball and erupting for six more runs.  The scoring began when Mark Smith shrugged a fastball off his shoulder reaching first.  Blair executed a text book hit-and-run slapping a grounder into the vacated second base position sending Smith all the way to third.  Brandon Raposa laid down a safety squeeze bunt down the third base line scoring Smith.  A wild pitch allowed Blair to scamper home with another run.  With Beaber on third, Brill lined a single to center for another, a catchers error manufactured another run, and a bases loaded single by Smith, up for a second time during the inning, plated yet two more.

While the scoring ended there, the defense continued to put on a show while playing errorless ball throughout.  Cain kept conserving pitches and hitting his spots, Standen came on in relief for two scoreless innings and the game ended, fittingly, with a double play.  The second twin killing of the day.
