A hit parade ensued this past Sunday as the Typhoons (2-0) brought their bats with them when facing off with the Yalkult Swallows (1-1). After the 10 hit barrage, TTBC Typhoons ended the day with a 13-2 victory.
The offense was led by the new kids on the block as Liam McDermond had three hits and an RBI, Brandon Yates who tacked on two hits and an RBI of his own, and Blake Shapiro who had a 2-RBI single. Brother Parker Shapiro’s 2-RBI triple and contributions from Troy Cheng, Franklin Karnitz, and Levi Elkins all made it a fun filled offensive day for the Typhoons.
On the other side of the ball, it was an error-free game for the defense which helped starter Troy Cheng (1-0) pick up his first victory of the season. Troy went 2.1 innings striking out three. Parker Shapiro came into relief when the team was up 8-2 in the third inning and proceeded to pitch the remaining 1.2 innings striking out five.
Next week the Typhoons have a much deserved rest as they’ll be on the bye week.
Coach Pitch has also kicked off over the last few weeks and the kids will get their uniforms and hats this coming weekend. We have a group of more than 50 getting started in their baseball careers and parents and coaches are excited for the games starting shortly. More on coach pitch in future write ups.
