PLATTSBURGH, NY – It took eleven innings but the Redbirds have notched their 9th consecutive W. The hero, Kenny Collins, who not only won the game with a deep sacrifice fly to right but also threw out the potentially tying run at the plate in the inning prior.

Collins’ amazing throw was made possible by an over-slide of third base on a steal for the first out of the 11th. The second out came on the Collins strike to the plate followed by a ground out to first baseman, Johnny Cole.
The bottom of the 11th inning started with runners on first and second, per league rules. Christian Nazario-Cruz executed a perfect sacrifice bunt and then the hero would strike. Collins would drive a towering fly ball to deep right which didn’t even merit a throw to the infield. Brian Brademan scored from third easily.

Nine in a row with Matti Doxter slated to get the ball for our regularly scheduled programming.

Let’s go Redbirds!
