The Saint Francis Lancers are having a magical season so far with a 6-1 league record, 15-4 overall. The Lancers were tied for first coming in to the contest against league rival Mitty. Starting junior pitcher Jeremy Ydens was named MVP going 3 for 4 offensively and pitched six strong innings, only giving up one run. The key hit for the Lancers came in the bottom of the third when RF Eric Whitfield poked a single right passed the diving second baseman with the bases loaded. Whitfield would then get the Game of the Week #PlayMaker honors for his 2-RBI single.
The Monarchs had plenty of opportunities to rally but great defensive plays by the Lancers nullified the effort. SF would cruise to a 5-1 victory to take the lead in the WCAL title race.
