Following last weekend's heroic come-back, the Herts Falcons' second team met the Richmond Riverdogs, who before the start of the day were bottom in the Division 1 (South-North) table with a record of 9 loses and no wins. The game turned out to be anything but a foregone conclusion, the visitors from Richmond came out determined to end their winless record this year and took an early 7-2 lead. A good fight back from the Falcons put them right back in the game, only to lose momentum in the 6th and 7th inning when the Riverdogs delivered hammer blows to take a 22-17 lead.
However, for a second week running Falcons 2 showed great courage to come back and win the game in the bottom of the 9th (23-22). Pitcher, Paul Raybould, was awarded the Win after some solid work as a reliever in the final 2 innings. The winning run was driven in by 14 year old Short Stop, Peter Kikel who has been a revolution in his rookie year for the club.
Falcons 2 take a well deserved break next Sunday, 26th June, so the attention turns to Falcons who play a double header at home against the Cityslick Sidewinders in a 'must win' relegation battle, in the prestigious British Baseball Premier League.
