Alvinston, ON - - Aces Win 8-2 to win League title

Appin would get close in the bottom of the 6th, by scoring their first run when Brad Wolfe drove home Nate Johnson, but Degraw struckout the final 2 batters to leave the bases loaded. 


Then Alvinston came to the dish in the top of the seventh, and tacked on 5 runs, on their way to what ended up being an 8-2 win. Joe Triest reached base in every at bat, as he was 3/3, with a walk, a run, 2 rbi's, and he was hit by a pitch.  Cole Pavey had a big 2 RBI hit in the seventh inning, which helped to produce the big inning for Alvinston. Rowan lam and Chris Drew each walked three times in the Alvinston win.  


Congrats to Alvinston on their 2018 SMMFL Playoff Championship, and congrats to Appin on making the finals a good series for the fans.
