Linglestown Gazette: Linglestown Twilight win streak rolls on

Saturday, June 21, 2008

Linglestown Twilight win streak rolls on

After falling behind 4-0 through two innings, Linglestown Twilight put together another last-inning rally Friday evening, extending their win streak to 16 games (10-1 league, 16-1 overall, first place in East Shore Twilight league). Twilight scratched together three runs in the top of the seventh – two on an errant throw, one on Sean Frailey’s RBI double – to knock off Lawnton 7-5.

Prior to the last-inning dramatics, Linglestown knotted the score at four by scoring a pair of runs in both the third and fourth innings.

After a shaky start, Linglestown pitcher Jason Kelly got into a good groove and went the distance to get the win in a 139-pitch outing that included nine strikeouts and five free passes.

Twilight banged out 13 hits. Sean Frailey (3 for 4; 2 doubles; 1 RBI) and center fielder Steve Booker (3 for 4, 2 doubles and a triple; 1 RBI) turned in the game’s top offensive performances, and catcher Bryan Stovall hit a towering homer over the left-field fence in the third.

The team plays a pair at Valley View today, and then returns to Koons Park on Sunday, June 22, to host Lykens at 5 pm.

16 in a row? Absolutely outstanding.

Thanks Bill for your coverage and interview - the added music to the video was great.

Hey, your welcome, Rob. Twilight is on a big-time roll. Today's games will be challenging though – I've been told that the umpiring usually is very one-sided up at Valley View, which is located in Schuylkill County. Plus, Valley View has some good athletes on their club, according to Linglestown coach Steve Econ.
