Hounds Sweep Red Sox in DH, win 6th and 7th in a row!

The Chicago Hounds defeated the Red Sox in a twin bill today, winning 11-8 in Game 1 and 6-5 in Game 2. The Hounds have now won 7 consecutive games and are 11-10-1 on the season (after starting 3-9-1).
T.J. Rinaldi (#1, CF) was the biggest factor on offense today, reaching base safely in all 7 plate appearances–with 2 singles, 2 walks, a reach by error, a triple, and a monstrous home run into the infield of the Little League field in deep left center of the field at Taft High School. Rinaldi scored 3 times, stole 2 bases, and had 1 RBI (on the home run). Anthony Camacho (#14, EH in Game 1, EH/RF in Game 2) also had a big day–driving in 5 runs on a Sac Fly, a single, a double, and on a fielder’s choice. The Hounds had contributions from everyone up and down the lineup in both games, these were quality team wins.
Robert Bavone (#10, P) came out of early retirement to pitch a complete game win in the first game. The 8 runs given up were more of a factor of the awful field conditions at Taft than anything else. The infield has been overrun with grass and weeds, no bounce is true, it is far, far worse than Winnemac ever was at its worst. Bavone went the distance and the Hounds were very happy to have him back on the hill.
Kurt Kerrigan (#12, RF in Game 1, P in Game 2) also got a complete game win in Game 2 of the doubleheader. Kerrigan was frustrated with his mechanics, but he still managed to strike out 9 Sox, including the final 3 batters in the 7th inning to put the game away. Kerrigan also had a double and scored a run in Game 1.
The Hounds next play the Aviators tomorrow morning at 9:30 am at Winnemac Park. The Aviators beat the Hounds the previous 2 times, both by 1 run each, so the Hounds look to exact revenge and get their 8th win in a row on this fantastic win streak.
