[ FALCONS/DRAGONS BOX SCORE: GAME ONE ]
[ FALCONS/DRAGONS BOX SCORE: GAME TWO ]
Sunshine returned to Hertfordshire on Sunday afternoon, and with it came some timely hitting, solid defense, and dogged pitching to propel the Falcons to a 13-2 season record. Richmond's Dragons put up a noble battle in the first game of the double-header, but the see-saw line score tells the story: two two-RBI doubles in the sixth inning put the Falcons on top for good.
The second game was less contentious – the Falcons scored four times in the first inning and never looked back. A six-inning complete game by Nic Götz provided no relief for the Dragons, who scored their ony run on a throwing error by catcher Jason Greenberg. Greenberg repented for his errant throw by gunning down a record five would-be base-stealers (three at 2nd base, two at 3rd).
Andy Cornish slugged his third homer of the season, while Bart Snavely (fresh off the DL) knocked his second dinger and went 5-for-8 with 4 RBIs. Starting pitcher Bruce Dullea earned his team-leading sixth win on the season. Götz improved to 3-0 with a 2.81 ERA and recorded eight strike outs over seven innings on the day.
