Recaps: Namur Angels split Series against Royal Greys

News - Belgian Baseball Leagues Comments Off on Recaps: Namur Angels split Series against Royal Greys

by Michael Perkins, www.namur-angels.be

The Namur Angels took to battle for their second consecutive series this weekend against the Royal Greys (4.6.11,4.5.11). Last weekend the Greys swept the Angels, ousting them in very close matchups.

The Angels got off to a hot start on Saturday in Namur, pounding American pitcher Dillon Griffin for 7 runs in the first inning. Vincent King and Nicolas Migeot both had 2 RBI singles in the inning. Nearly every Angel scored in the inning, as the Angels batted around to start the series. King led the offensive charge for the Angels, finishing the day 3-4 with 2RBIs and 2 runs scored.

Three innings later, Mike Perkins blasted his 4th homerun of the season deep to right-center field. The 2 run shot plated Theo De Bellefroid and put the Angels up 9-2 in the game. Perkins finished the day 2-5 with 3 RBIs, 3 runs scored, and a stolen base.

Justin Latta outdueled his American counterpart by throwing 7 strong innings, only allowing 2 runs on 10 hits while striking out an impressive 10 batters. Fellow American teammate Jakob Huffman pitched a scoreless 8th inning to preserve the 12-2 victory for the Angels.

Sunday’s matchup proved less promising for the Angels, as they dropped the game 13-5 to the Royal Greys. The game was tied for several innings, but the Greys scored 9 runs in the remaining 2 innings to increase their lead.

Starting pitcher Cedric Desmedt through 5 innings, allowing 2 runs on 4 hits while striking out 4. Nicolas Migeot and Cedric Nauts combined to throw the remainder of the game.

Offensively, the Angel’s bats were held in check by a strong performance by Grey’s pitcher Robbe De Jongh, who threw his second consecutive complete-game against the Angels. Jake Huffman starred for Namur, going 2-4 with 2 RBIs. Theo De Bellefroid also had 2 hits in the contest.

The Namur Angels look to “bounce back” next week against their rivals, the Hoboken Pioneers. The Pioneers and Angels are both fighting for a spot in the Belgian Baseball League Playoffs, so both teams have a lot on the line in the series.
