The Braves played their second game of the season on April 27 against the Belle Harbor Bunkettes. A few practices were held between the two games to keep the girls focused and it paid off for the Braves with an 8-4 victory.

With four players missing due either to illness or injury, the Braves still displayed their winning touch.

King pitched a good game and secured eight strikeouts. Morgan Mack (third baseman), Erica Sorrenson (second baseman) and Haley Henry (catcher) each played well defensively.

In the top of the sixth inning, Emma Know broke the game open with an inside the park homerun, which drove in Henry, Sorrenson and Kyla Tacopina. The Braves’ Madison Lalumia, Meredith Connelly, King and Knox each scored a run.

Despite winter-like conditions, the coaches and parents of both teams congratulated the girls for playing a good game. On May 1, the Braves played a game they would like to forget as the Vintage Abstract Cubs won 33-18. It was an off day for the girls, despite nine of the ten Braves girls scoring a run in the game and Ortiz hitting a homerun in the fourth. The team would like to congratulate Paul King and his tough Cubs!

With continued teamwork, practice and dedication, the Braves hope for a successful and fun season.
