No team enjoys losing, especially when a team has gotten used to winning. The Crusaders from Bishop Eustace had won 13 out of their last 15 games but were trying to snap a current two game losing streak. Jim Yezzo's first inning three run homerun highlighted a six run inning that put the Crusaders ahead of the Mustangs from Triton. Starting pitcher Chris Monaco only allowed one hit and Bishop Eustace would cruise to a 10-0 victory.
Bishop Eustace has been known for the ability to win a lot of games based on their pitching staff. Every game will not be a perfect one, but by limiting their opponents from mounting huge rallies gives the offense the chance to produce enough runs to win a game. On this day, Yezzo and Greg Brodzinski provided the fire power blasting home runs for the Crusaders. By scoring in every inning of this shorten five inning game allowed the Crusaders to get back on the winning track.
