Drew Mayhew (Cardinals) added to this with an unassisted double play, however his brother Charlie Mayhew (Redsox) played a key role with a superb catch leaving the score at 3-1 to the Redsox.
Second Game of the day on Diamond one Cardinals – Yankees, things carried along at a good pace, Yankee Jose Morillo giving his all on the mound, some very nice catching from Michael James (Yankee).
