Knights – Steve Platt hit 2 HR’s and George McConnell added a solo shot for the Knights. Aussie Damien Stewart saw his first action of the year as an injury prevented him from pitching during his season at home. He was able to battle through the rust and pick up the win.

Knights – 14 straight hours at the fields and our 4th straight game took their toll on the Knights in this one as youth almost prevailed.. The young Cornerstone team gave the Knights all we could handle forcing 2 extra frames before we could come away with the victory. Reggie Barrua was a one man show for the Knights in this=20one going 3-3 with a HR, 3 RBI including the game winner. Barrau also stole home with 2 outs in the bottom of the 7th to force extra innings..
 
 
Game 5

WP - Hertzler 4 IP Stokes 3IP
LP – Dyke   4 IP, 5R, 6H, 7 K, 0BB
         Stewart 2 IP, 4R, 6H, 0K, 1BB
 
Knights- The Knights offense couldn’t get much going and Keatings offense jumped on the Knights pitching staff for 9 runs and 12 hits in a 6 inning run rule shortened game. Dave Simon’s HR was the lone bright spot for the Knights in this game.
 
The Knights will be back in action Aug 1-3 in Holland Patent, NY for our last tune up before the ISC II TOC.
