PW 16U Battles. Comes Up Just Short
By: Brian Werner | brian@prospectwire.com

Boca Raton, FL - On a night when anything was possible, Prospectwire 16U came up on the short end of a 7-6 final. 

"We battled all night," said PW Coach Patrick Lee.  "I didn't realize it was an 18U team at first.  Once I found out, I was even more impressed with how we played for our first time together.  The kids showed heart, played some small ball and found a way to keep it close.  They just got it done when they needed to, but overall, I can't complain with what I saw."

Alex McGathey (2013) threw 4 solid innings for Prospectwire, before giving way to Garrett Gross (2012). 

"Alex had good stuff tonight.  He's got a smooth delivery and kept the ball down all night," remarked Lee.  "Garrett gave us 3 good innings too.  Like I said, for the first time together, to battle against a team as good as the Florida Stars, Im pretty pleased."

While PW had to use small ball and timely hitting to piece together their 6 runs, they turned in some eye popping plays in the field.  Chris Gaynor (2012) had an outstanding game in LF.  Primarily an INF, Gaynor had a diving catch down the LF line, as well as a great running snag in left-center to save a few runs.  CF Duke Barber (2013) also made some excellent defensive plays for PW, while giving himself up at the plate twice to sacrifice runners over.  Clutch hitting by Seth McGarry (2012), who played injured after pulling a hamstring in the 1st inning, and J.D. Huggins helped drive in a couple of Prospectwire's runs early in the contest. 

"I think once these kids shake the rust off, they will be just fine.  I know we have a couple more coming too this weekend, so it should make for some good baseball," replied Lee.  PW 16U takes the field tomorrow at 12:40 for Game 2 vs. Blue Bombers 17U team.  Check back tomorrow for more updates...
