Shaking off opening-night rust that dropped them in a big early hole, The Beer Burglars rallied for a stirring 15-13 win over the Master Batters Friday night in Brighton.

The Burglars tied the game at 13 in the sixth inning on back-to-back home runs by “Big Will” Magruder and Danny Badger. After the Batters failed to score in the bottom of the sixth, Ryan “Railroad” Richards led off the seventh with a single, his fourth hit of the night. Two batters later, team captain Justin Drechsler drove in Richards with a one-out triple, then scored himself on a short sacrifice fly by Rob “Bubbles” Buckley, beating the throw from center with a head-first slide into home plate.

The Batters went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the seventh to end the game; it was their third straight scoreless frame after starting the game with 6 runs in the first and 3 in the second off pitcher Tyler “Steamboat” Mathers (1-0).

A slow start earned the Burglars early deficits of 6-1, 11-7, and 13-8. Sloppy play in the field let several unearned runs score, and Mathers did not help his cause, stranding five base runners — all with two outs — in his first three at-bats.

The Burglars are believed to have set a franchise record with five girls watching from the bleachers. And mascot Snoots debuted his “Littlest Slugger in the Whole Wide World” hat.

    I love this blog! And I’m so glad to see the little slugger wearing his cap. So handsome and athletic.
