Nov. 9, 2010
NEW ORLEANS - The Green team may have lost the series, but there is still fight left in that group and they claimed a 3-1 victory in game four of the Fall World Series on Tuesday. Garrett Cannizaro, Tyler Chamberlain-Simon and Nick Schneeberger all plated RBI's in the victory at Greer Field at Turchin Stadium.
The Green team took their first lead of the series in the bottom of the first inning when Cody Robinson doubled to right field off of Blue starting pitcher Randy LeBlanc. After a walk to Adam Zabel, Chamberlain-Simon delivered with an RBI single to right field to make it a 1-0 game.
Blake Crohan singled to right field with one out in the third inning and, after a wild pitch from LeBlanc, came around to score on a Schneeberger single to make it 2-0. Cannizaro added to the Green team's lead with his first home run of the fall to left field to give the Green team a 3-0 edge after five innings.
The Blue team posted their lone run in the top of the seventh inning when Jeremy Schaffer doubled to deep center field and came around to score in a throwing error by Jason Jabour on a sacrifice bunt attempt by Matt Ryan. Jabour would retire the next three batters on ground balls to collect his first save of the fall in the 3-1 Green team victory.
Senior Conrad Flynn picked up the win with 3.2 scoreless innings of work. He allowed two hits, walked a batter and fanned two in the outing. Andrew Garner struck out one in two scoreless innings and Jabour allowed an unearned run in an inning of work.
Six different players accounted for the Blue team's six hits, while Cannizaro and Crohan each tallied three hits a piece on the Green side. Chamberlain-Simon and Schneeberger each tallied a pair of hits, while Robinson also reached base twice with a double and a walk.
The series finale will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 10 with the first pitch scheduled for approximately 3:00.
