Oct. 14, 2009
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - A three-run fifth inning was the difference in the White team's 4-2 win over the Grey team in game one of the Steak and Beans World Series Wednesday at Capaha Park.
After being rained out Tuesday, the baseball Redhawks were able to take the field for a seven-inning tilt.
The game was tied 1-1 through four innings before the White team got to reliever Kirk Boeller in the bottom of the fifth.
Nick Harris led things off with a double to left center and went to second when Taylor Heon walked. A passed ball then advanced the runners. On the next play, Michael Adamson went opposite field with a single to plate both Harris and Heon. Adamson, who went to third on a single by Trenton Moses, touched home on a wild pitch to give the White team a 4-1 advantage.
The Grey team managed to get the tying runners on base in the top of the seventh, but Shae Simmons ended all hopes of a comeback when he forced Jim Klocke to fly out to left. Simmons nailed down his first save of the series.
Meanwhile, Jon Salazar was credited with the win. Salazar struck out three in two innings of work.
Boeller suffered the loss.
Offensively, Adamson knocked in two of the four runs for the White team. Harris and Heon each added a double, as well.
The Steak and Beans series resumes Friday at 6 p.m.
