TTBC Eagles Seniors Soar Over the Kaakiro Lions 21-2

TTBC Eagles Seniors 21 – 2 Kaakiro Lions

On the back of an emphatic victory over the Buffaloes the previous weekend, the Senior Eagles comfortably dispatched the Kaakiro Lions 21 – 2 on a beautiful Sunday morning at Lion Rock. 

With many of the regular starters off on international duty, the Eagles tapped the TTBC farm system calling up:  Ryan Kim, Quinn Lawler, Donovan Ma and Roy Son from the Juniors squad.  

Starting pitcher, southpaw Noah Lambert 

On the mound, Noah Lambert was handed the start as Eagles ace Ian Nam given the day off.  Nam and Rento Ishikawa would be tasked with commanding the outfield as the Lions came out roaring with their first two batters hitting safely. 

But after giving up two runs on those two hits, Lambert would find his groove striking out four and walking two over three innings, earning the W.  

Daniel Looram made his Seniors pitching debut taking the mound in the 4th inning in an efficient display of velocity and placement. 

Not exactly a save situation with the scoreline at 21 to 2 but the “Rolaids Relief Man” allowed zero hits, striking out three and allowing one walk to close out the game.  

Offensively, Looram got it done at the plate as well.  In fact, the first five batters: Lambert, Ma, Luke Lawler, Looram and James Gikas collectively scored 13 runs going 8 for 12, with 9 RBIs and drawing 8 BBs.  

Proud dad moment:  Coach Lawler with son Luke and daughter Quinn, making HKLL Seniors history

A comprehensive win for the Senior Eagles but one of notable significance for Coach Lawler.  

While having a father (or mother) coaching their son/daughter in a game is part and parcel at TTBC, we will need to comb the Club/League annals to see if we’ve had a Coach with both son (Luke) and daughter (Quinn) starting a Hong Kong Little League game, particularly in the Seniors Division.
