Call In A Close Game
-- This Vinita runner was called safe at first in the 2nd inning allowing Vinita's
5th run to cross the plate. David Chester then threw to the plate and prevented
another run and ended the inning. It is impossible to determine which foot touched
the base first from this photo. I was zoomed in too close to get David and Harrison's
heads in the photo. -- Ted
Phillips (#4) got the first out of the game on this Vinita foul pop up.
Mendez (#14) pitched the first four inning for the Cardinals.
Nair (#11) started a 6-run 1st inning for the Cardinals. He led off with a walk
then slid into 2nd (above) as the Vinita fielder dropped the ball allowing Brad
George (#2) to reach 1st safely.
Shoate (#8) heads for 1st after hitting a single which scored Kevin Phillips
and sent David Chester to 3rd in the first inning. Chester had plated the initial
Cardinal run with a bases loaded single followed by a 2-run Riley Murr single.
A Kyle Keith sacrafice put Collinsville up 6-0 still in the first inning. Vinita
answered with 5 runs of their own in the second. Neither team scored in the
3rd or 4th innings.
Mendez (#14) pitching (from a center field view) in the 2nd inning.
Fielder Tyler Nair (#11) sends the baseball back to the infield after one of
Vinita's 2nd inning hits.
Bobby Shoate tag at the plate ended Vinita's 2nd inning (the end of the play
described in the top "2 feet on 1st" photo) with a throw from David
Woods started the 4th inning for the Cardinals but gave way to Jeremey Guest
(1 batter) and Randy Rogers before Collinsville got out of the inning trailing
6-10. It could easily have been 6-11 but a Vinita runner missed stepping on
home plate after tagging on a fly ball and became the 3rd out instead.
Rogers finished out the 4th, then pitched the 5th & 6th innings for the
Cards as they came back to tie at 11-11. A Bobby Shoate solo homer in the 5th
got the Cards to 7-10.
Bobby Shoate's throw to 1st (after fielding a bunt) got an out in the 6th inning
but the throw from 1st to 3rd (where the plate ump is headed) wasn't in time
to get the runner there. That runner scored on the next play to put Vinita up
Curtis (#1) scored in the Cards (home) half of the 6th after leading off with
a double and making it home on a Tyler Nair single and an 8-11 score.
Nair (#11) scored the first of 2 runs on a Riley Murr sacrafice fly in the 6th.
Goodman (#3) scored the second run on the Murr sacrafice after the catcher made
a bad throw to 3rd and got the same back to him and Collinsville pulled to 10-11.
A Vinita fielding error on a Bobby Shoate long fly ball allowed Lane Coulter
to bring in the 11th Cardinal run in the 6th inning.
Phillips pitched the 7th & 8th innings for Collinsville. The score stayed
11-11 until a 2-out walk in the 8th was followed by a single and double to put
Vinita up 11-13.
baseman David Chester holds up the ball to show the umpire after tagging out
a Vinita runner with a pick off throw from Kevin Phillips in the 7th.
Murr and Brad George try to track down a throw from home as a Vinita runner
stole 2nd in the 8th inning.
Chester took advantage of yet another Vinita dropped deep fly and motored all
the way to 3rd in Collinsville's half of the 8th but was left stranded there.
