With a little class, sophistication, and pure game focus, the Mason Punchers jumped out to an early lead on Medina and captured a 13-2 victory on Saturday at Medina.
The game was decided quickly as Mason exerted its will early with seven runs in the first three innings. A two-run double by Austin Trip, an RBI single by Kolby Yonker, and an error during the first inning fueled Mason’s offense early.
Austin Trip had two extra-base hits for Mason. Bodie Adams fanned nine, paving the way for a Puncher win. Adams allowed one earned run on four hits and four walks over five innings. Bodie's determination showed in his performance. He was implementing what he has been working on in practice. He was breathing through his eyelids like some old Mayan Indian trick.
One run in the bottom of the second helped Medina close its deficit to 4-1. An RBI single by Lestourgeon fueled Medina’s comeback. Adams ended the inning by getting Landry to fly out. The Punchers tallied three runs in each of the third, fourth and fifth. In the third, Mason scored on a two-run hustling double by Andy Duarte, scoring Trip and Adams.
The Punchers increased its lead with three runs in the fifth. The inning got off to a hot start when Chance Stockbridge had a great approach double, bringing home Luis Castillo. That was followed up by an error that scored Stockbridge. The Puncher’s played like a pack of wolves. They flew around the baseball field when they were on defense hustling to back up fellow players. When they hit they looked as if they had a common goal to drive the ball in the gaps.
The Punchers took care of business and are ready for the playoffs. Bring it on.
