World Series Game 2 Recap

Game 2 of the World Series went to the Monterrey Stars 4-1. Once again the Stars pitching staff was able to hold down the Brave Vawts offensive only allowing 1 run on 4 hits with a team effort in pitching. The Stars used six different pitchers during the game in a screw up by the manager so we will have to wait and see if it will effect there bullpen later in the series. Mike Bonds was the star of this game though going 3-4 with a double, homerun and 3 RBI day. Once again the Stars where able to score early against the Brave Vawts before the Vawts pitching staff was able to settle down. One has to think that the Vawts first World Series is effecting there pitching and maybe with the series going to Atlanta will settle them down. The scoring started in the first inning with Bonds singling in Clem Barkley, then Jackson Cooper singled in Bonds two batters later. Bonds crushed a two run homerun in the fourth inning to end the scoring for the Stars. Aubrey Hutchinson got the Vawts on the board with a solo homerun in the fifth inning. Larry Rath didn't pitch badly he just got hurt with some early inning mistakes as he went 7 innings, allowed 2 earned runs, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and gave up 12 hits. Horacio Mieses saved his second straight game in the series. Now the series switches to Atlanta so hopefully the Vawts can make a series out of this.
