Game 1 - Elizabeth Resolutes 21 - Gothams 3
Game 2 - Elizabeth Resolutes 21 - Gothams 2
Once again it was tough going with our patchwork lineup as we dropped 2 to the Elizabeth Resolutes. Thanks to Al "The Spaniard" from Flemington, Steve & Dan from the Resolutes and a new player "Slider" we had enough players to play the game.
Game 1 was played under 1873 rules and ended up in a painful 21-3 Resolute victory. The Gothams were Chicagoed for the first 6 innings, before Spike generated a run on his own by singling, stealing 2nd and 3rd and scoring on a wild pitch. Our only other runs came when Shoeless, Trolley, Candles, and Slider strung together a few hits to tally two more aces. Not too much to speak of from a defensive perspective other than Digits and candles each throwing a runner out at the plate in the 2nd inning. Trolley also caught 1 runner stealing in the first.
Shoeless: 4-5 1 2B
Trolley: 3-5 1 SB, 1 Ace
The Spaniard: 0-4, 1 ace
Spike: 2-4, 2 SB, 1 Ace
Game 2 was played by 1864 rules. Not much better as we lost 21-2. Unfortunately, I can't think of any highlights other than Slider generatiung a run with his speed in the 5th inning as we were Chicagoed for the first 4 innings and the last 3.
Shoeless: 1-4, 1 Ace
The Spaniard: 3-4
Slider: 2-5, 1 SB, 1 Ace
Spike: 3-4, 2 SB
