Last night was game three of the Winter Garden Little League season for the Yankees. They played the Marlins. The game got off to a great start when Zach Burke, of the Yankees, hit an inside the park home run in the bottom of the first inning!
The next two innings were a back and forth battle. Then in the 4th inning the Yankees scored 3 more runs. In the 5th inning the Marlins answered with their first run of the night and the score was Marlins 1, Yankees 4. Unfortunately, in the top of the 6th inning the wheels came off for the Yankees. A series of walks and over thrown balls at first and third base, brought in 4 runs for the Marlins. The Yankees could not get any hits in the bottom of the 6th, so the game ended with a score of Marlins 5, Yankees 4.
The boys gave it their best shot, they just need to work on their fielding this week in practice. We'll get them next time!
