Eric Stout went 3 innings and allowed no runs and struck out 2. Justin “Things are” Grimm struck out 4 in 2 shutout innings. The star of the night was Alex “The Great” Blandino, who reached base 4 times, going 3 for 3 with a double, a walk, and a walk-off solo dinger. He also made this nifty play, which was pretty awesome. Blake “Trade Hands” Trahan went 1 for 3 with a solo homer.
