Riptide vs. Michigan Ice series underway

July 13, 2007 - National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) - New England Riptide News Release

The second game of a four game series with the Michigan Ice was a hit parade for the Riptide as their offense broke out in a big way. Keep reading for a special coupon for Friday night's game!

If you missed the game Thursday night here is the recap:

July 12, 2007 - Tonight's second game between the Michigan Ice and the New England Riptide would feature the pitching match-up of Ashley Hamby against Eileen Canney, coming off a complete game shut out of the Philadelphia Force last week. It figured to be a pitchers duel and each pitcher pitched a gem of a game for the first five innings, holding each other to no runs on two hits. It was in the sixth that things fell apart for Hamby as the Riptide sent 13 batters to the plate and scored seven runs to walk away with a 7-0 victory. As has happened so many times before, the inning began with Shanel Scott putting down and beating out a perfect bunt. On the next pitch to Garland Cooper, Scott stole second and did not so much as draw a throw from catcher Miranda Ervin. The steal was her league leading 21st of the year. Cooper eventually drew a walk and then the hit parade began. Lyndsey Angus hit a single, Gina Carbonatto hit a double, then Lisa Iancin, Jess Merchant, Shanel Scott, and Garland Cooper all hit singles before the inning mercifully ended for the Ice.

Canney completed her second straight shut out, this time allowing three hits, one walk and struck out nine to improve her record to 5-2 on the year.

Don't forget, Friday July 13th the Riptide start at 7:05 PM at Martin Field. You can get directions on the website:
