After finishing on top of the ladder for consecutive seasons the thirds managed to top off an impressive season with an 11-10 victory over Essendon in the grand final in what was a great game by both sides. A 6 run, sixth innings with the bat turned the game, the difference was that the Melbourne boys outhit their opponents.
The Mens Division 4 East team were successful on the weekend, winning the Grand Final against St Kilda 18-8, against the only team we hadn't defeated all season, losing both previous matches quite convincingly. A big 13 run 3rd inning was the difference.
The Melbourne Red Sox win the Under 12 2013/14 Grand Final. In a close game that went to extra innings and near dark at Surrey Park, the Melbourne Red Sox beat the Melbourne Angels 10-9. After leading the game early, the Red Sox gave up the lead after a 6 run inning by the Angels that left them leading 7-2. The Red Sox pegged them back to tie the game in the last inning. In the top of the 6th the Red Sox scored 2 but the Angels came back with 1 and had 2 runners in scoring position when a 4-5 double play ended the game. Congrats to all players on a great game.
