Ducks take two, coach googles definition of streak

The Ducks had two very tough and very well played games this past weekend.   The team pulled together to fight for two wins against very competitive opponents.

Game 1 v. Mussels

This game was a fight from start to finish.  The Mussels were still Mighty, despite being down to 1/3 of their Prims.  This game went back and forth each inning, but the Duck defense managed to stay strong and help seal the win.  Sub Chris Morrow was excellent at first, Kelly Stites had several key plays at 2B and David Fiorello played great at SS.  The outfield performed admirably, with Jacob Stites making several nice plays and nearly making one tremendous play running back to the fence.

Game 2 v. Bulls

Game 2 went much like game 1, both teams fought and the game was never decided until that last out was made.  Lee McDonald pitched another gem, keeping the Bulls big bats from catching fire, but when they finally did, Jacob Stites locked it down.  As the game drifted onto the final inning, if a ball was hit to RCF, it got caught.  Short pop up, Stites was there.  Drive deep, Stites was there.  

This Ducks team gutted out two tough games and found themselves on the correct side of the win column by playing as a team.  Great work gents!
