Paul and LaVecchia teamed up on the hill to limit Orange to three runs on five hits and only one free pass while setting down six via strikeout. Tucholski drove home six runs, including a bases clearing double in the sixth inning to give the Demons control of the game at a time when they were ahead by a score of 3-2.
Tucholski and Loosli were the only Demons to collect two hits. And backstop Michael Stenger, catching both ends of the twin bill, collected two RBI. Marlette and Williams each scored three times. Marlette also doubled in the game. Williams was perfect at the dish with three walks and a hit, as was Chang in two appearances–a double and his fourth HBP of the season. In other Chang news, the earth behind the left field fence in Olmsted Falls is going on the 15-day DL. You really did have to be there.
The day’s defensive highlight was a diving catch in the right field gap by LaVecchia in the first inning.
The win makes the Demons 7-4 on the season.
