Let's take a look at Wednesday's game of the day and the rest of the IMG Wood Bat 14U League action.
Game of the Day: Ospreys v. Tarpons
The Ospreys and Tarpons squared off on Wednesday, with Michael Eberle starting for the Ospreys and Jordan Wergiles leading the Tarpons on the mound.
The Ospreys took an early 3-0 lead after the top of the 3rd and never looked back. Thomas Clift, Mike Durkin, and Andrew Feldman led the Ospreys offensively as they all had two base hits on the day. Durkin was the run manufacturer for the Ospreys with his crucial 2-3,3 RBIperformance.
On the defensive side of the ball, Eberle went a strong six innings, giving up two earned runs, striking out two. To finish off the Tarpons, closer John Winslow came on to pitch in the bottom of the 7th. To no surprise, Winslow recorded his third save of the season surrendering only one hit and striking out one batter in his one inning of work. The Final score was 4-2, Ospreys.
